Guaranty Trust Bank Plc (GTBank) has announced that it recently completed and opened the first digital playground for children in Nigeria.
Located in Lekki, Lagos State, the GTBank Play Centre is equipped with a wide range of interactive games that would give kids a fun and immersive digital experience whilst aiding their mental and intellectual development.
A statement from the bank disclosed that the facility is open from 10am to 3pm on Weekdays, and 10am to 1pm on Saturdays, and that some of the features of the play centre include a sketch town, where kids can design cars, launch rockets, and bring all their sketches to life.
At the playground, children can also use the wide range of bricks available to build whatever excites their curiosity and also express themselves creatively by scribbling, writing and drawing on a digital chalkboard.
GTBank recently launched Habari, a digital platform that gives customers unlimited access to local and international music, and at the same time, allows them to shop online, split bills with friends and take care of their everyday needs, in one place. Habari, like the GTBank Play Centre, is the first of its kind in Nigeria, reflecting the Bank's digital drive as well as its focus on creating unique experiences for all segments of its customer base.
Commenting on the launch of the Play Centre, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Mr Segun Agbaje said: "How and where children play contributes significantly to their cognitive and intellectual development, helping them build better communication and problem-solving skills. Our new Play Centre will give children a tension-free space to build these critical developmental skills, expose them to new and emerging digital technologies, and, most importantly, give them a wonderful time out."
"At GTBank we are passionate about building the bank of the future, and for us, this means constantly leveraging the best of technology to create amazing digital experiences for all of our customers, in a way that adds real value to their lives."
