WellKids by Healthy Mother

At Healthy Mother we believe in the philosophy that in the initial years mother plays a vital role in nurturing a child's social, emotional, intellectual and physical strengths in the age group 6 months to 6 years. In all these services we recognize the critical role that moms play and therefore each of these services has been designed with the mother in mind.

Story Telling

The tradition of story telling in Indian families has been existing for generations. Children have been enthralled and at the same time educated at the feet of their parents, grandparents and elders in the joint family system as epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata were passed down from generation to generation as were the moral values prescribed by them. At WellKids we help parents to teach their kids value systems through context sensitive story telling that is relevant to today's age.

The World Around Us

Children today grow in an environment where they are out of touch with many of the wonders of nature which are often within touching distance from them. With dual income parents spending more time at work, children find it challenging to get quality time with parents and more so to explore and understand the world around them together. WellKids activities bring to the little ones the simple pleasures of experiencing different facets of nature and help them derive a better understanding of the world around them

Performing Arts

Performing arts promote skills in children that later in life are very important in academic and working life. They expose kids to qualities like good communication, creativity and working in abstraction, discipline and focus in preparation, planning, teamwork and receiving feedback. At WellKids we help kids of all ages imbibe these skills by letting loose their creative spirits under encouragement and guidance from our mentors.
