What makes children smart, curious, alert, observant, competent, confident, resourceful, persistent- in the broadest and best sense, intelligent- is not having access to more and more learning places, resources, and specialists, but being able in their lives to do a wide variety of interesting things that matter, things that challenge their ingenuity, skill and judgment and that make an obvious difference in their lives and the lives of the people around them.

 
     
  1. Committed to excellence in education, PODAR ENRICHMENT CENTRES mission is-
 
  "To create environments that help children grow into confident learners and achievers, happy in mind, body and spirit and who can make a valued contribution to the world."  
  Our promise to every parent is - enriched environments, latest learning and teaching techniques, focussed assessments and state of art infrastructure.  
     
  Kids in the 21 century are far faster than their counterparts from the 20 century.  
  Hobbies drift the routine mind to enjoy a perspective that would rather never be touched. As it is very common among us to say, 'no time' for we are so immersed in our daily to and fro, we rarely give a thought of harboring a HOBBY.

Learning a hobby is said to be advantageous for mind and body. You will feel renewed and pepped in life. Also it breaks your circle of thoughts and incites some new ideas on your programmed life. Brings out the creativity in you and makes you a happier person. You will find a remarkable difference it brings in your family, friends and social life.

Now that you are interested in the word 'SKILLS' what is it that you should take up? Firstly understand the person you are - Are you an INDOOR or an OUTDOOR person? If an indoor person, then take up learning chess or table tennis or any indoor hobbies.
