Dolphin POD is all set to launch Asia’s first 21st century life skill training centre for kids in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. The main idea behind the launch of the centre is to make the kids ready for 21st century challenges. The concept is based and inspired from Dr. Shimi Kang’s book “The Dolphin Parent”. The centre enrolls kids from 1 and half years to 16 years. It spreads across 12,000 sq. feet with a play area of around 7, 000 sq. feet.
The centre aims to provide a fun, interactive and inspiring education unlike anything children receive anywhere else. By utilizing the latest neuro-scientific methods for Innovation, Social Leadership and Wellness, Dolphin POD teaches the key 21st century skills of Consciousness Quotient (CQ) – Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking and Contribution.
The Dolphin POD method consists of 3 unique experiences – Play (play and exploration): Coach-facilitated play through uniquely sourced stations of hands-on games, puzzles, gadgets, technology, art, drama, and music and body movement. Others (social connection): Communication and collaboration leadership social skills training through breakout sessions, teamwork exercises, role-play and public speaking. Downtime (stress management and wellness): Attention/ focus training, mindfulness and cultivation of positive mental habits such as grit, gratitude and optimism. The duration of the session is 90 minutes, twice a week.
