Whether it is to enhance your children’s language competencies or expose them to the creative realm of arts and dance, these six NS55-exclusive deals promise to give your children a head start in the necessary resources they need to succeed.

The brain is an incredibly complex entity, but its existence has created some of mankind’s most marvellous inventions (if utilised well).
However, as ThinkersBox has so accurately surmised, textbook knowledge and basic paper qualifications are not adequate criteria in defining intelligence. ThinkersBox instead concentrates on your child’s intellectual potential, creating ways where he or she can augment his inherent mental capacity to excel. It promises customised curriculums that allow your children to take in knowledge quickly, while challenging them to think critically so as to find optimised solutions to problems.
Till 31 December 2022, using $55 worth of NS55 credits for a full Brain Smart course entitles you an additional $55 discount off the full fees. And if you use $20 worth of NS55 credits to purchase Brain Toys, you’ll receive 1 complimentary trial class for 1 child ( for new customers only). Visit safra.sg/membership/ns55-recognition-package-singapore/ns55-deals/promotions-with-usage-of-ns55-credit for more NS55 deals.
SAFRA members also receive up to $50 off on ThinkersBox programmes; more info at safra.sg/lifestyle/thinkersbox
