What does Frolific mean?
The word Frolific is a blend of two words “prolific” and “fun”. It truly represents our space where children become prolific while having fun. Our research has shown that when children are having fun they are open to learning. We provide an unconventional learning environment where the students have the agency and freedom to be themselves, and therefore, intrinsically motivated. We tap into this motivation to teach them leadership skills.
Out of all the leadership skills why the emphasis on EQ, Collaboration & Innovation?
Because we believe that for anyone to succeed at anything meaningful, they need to have the emotional intelligence to persevere through ups and downs of life, the ability to build meaningful connections with the world outside their immediate communities, and the ability to bring a spark of creativity in their work to make it stand out.
Why do children have to learn about leadership skills?
Because leaders are not born. They are made. And for any of these skills to be an integral part of our personality, there needs to be a steady dose of positive reinforcement over a long period of time. Foundational schooling years is therefore an ideal time to start.
Why can't we teach resilience through karate, collaboration through soccer, and innovation through an art class?
Here is a question to reflect upon: is your child able to understand the importance of applying these skills in their everyday life outside of these classes? According to our findings from parents, the answer is usually a no. We believe that the missing link is the lack of understanding relevance of these skills in their everyday life, and the intrinsic motivation to use it. At Frolific we bridge this gap. Please check out the methodology section for more information.
Why can’t we teach leadership skills at home?
It is possible to teach some of these skills at home. However, based on our research and workshops with parents, we found that: - No matter how invested they are, parents just lack the time to consistently imbibe these skills in children. - Having children with different needs in the same household further hampers this ability. - Parents often may not have the right expertise in teaching children. - Since there is no systematic way to monitor the results, it is hard to monitor growth.
Can I quit or join in the middle of a course?
We want you to have the best experience possible. However, there is no obligation or commitment on your part. You may cancel at any time. Students may however only join at the start of a course or module. We rely on community building amongst the students and incrementally developing on concepts over the entire course of the program. Joining in the middle will reduce the advantages your child can gain by attending the course.
Are the sessions private and safe for my child?
We value the privacy of our students above all else. If your child is registered and attending a session, you may observe the sessions, but we strongly discourage this as we want all kids in the class to be completely open and unfettered. We will be happy to talk one-on-one to explain how our classes work and answer any questions you may have.
What if my child misses a class?
We offer make-up time before the regularly scheduled session to review material that students may have missed. In addition, every session begins with a recap of the previous class that will help your child come up to speed with the rest of their peers. Finally, if your child still has lingering questions, we are always happy to answer them after a session.
Can I try a class before registering? Do you have a free trial class?
Absolutely! You can request a trial class by contacting us here.
Who will be conducting the sessions?
The sessions will be conducted by Alpana the founder of Frolific Kids. She has two Master of Science degrees, an Entrepreneurship certification from Cornell University, a PMP certification, a SEE Learning certification, an ALF certification, is a 4.0 Schools Fellow, and a Meet The Moment Grantee. Read more about her on the About Us page.
If it's a mixed group, how does it serve the youngest or oldest students?
The mixed group makes the program unique. The lessons are enhanced as they interact with one another. The age difference helps our students see things from a different perspective. There is open and clear communication and children rarely feel threatened or pressured.
What does a typical session look like?
Do you offer any scholarships?
Yes! We are happy to offer need-based scholarships. Please send us an email with your name, preferred contact information, to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
What does money back guarantee mean?
