Adding spark to children’s playing needs by providing an array of exciting activities all under one roof, House of Pepe – a new-age play area has opened its doors for the children in Kolkata. As children increasingly engage in the online environment in the new normal, be it online classes or staying glued to phones and TV screens for hours, the facility aims to induce both physical and mental well-being in the children.
Mindfully designed and seeing well-researched functional activities, the play center is poised to pioneer as a joyful, engaging learning and development facility for the children, instead of just extending traditional creche services.
Kolkata has never seen such varied and exciting activities for children under one roof. Featuring hydrotherapy – a first-of-its-kind dedicated comfortable space that uses massage and warm water to help junior citizens with body movements and strengthening muscles, it also aids them to relax and engage with their friends in any weather at any time.
The play area also houses a children-dedicated salon for child-safe hair and nail services including desired haircuts and toxin-free nail paints. For culinary aficionados and movie buffs, House of Pepe is equipped with a large screen projector and comfortable cushioned seating and serves hot, scrumptious snacks for an immersive movie experience. For intimate theme-based parties and to make the young ones feel their best on their cherishing day, the facility’s top floor offers a large customizable banquet space, perfect for hosting birthdays and fun events.
As a sedentary lifestyle in the digital age is becoming prominent among people of all ages, adoption of such a lifestyle at an early age can make the child to be faced obesity, poorly functioning immune and digestive systems, prone to acquiring more diseases, stunted muscle and bone development, lethargic approach to life, neural dysfunctionalities, etc. Dopamine, the key transmitter that helps one to feel motivated to achieve the set goals, can be activated through mindful, aerobic functional movements. Instead of the traditional obstacle courses, House of Pepe strives to make the children strong both physically and mentally through its ninja course, in-house zip line, and many more activities.
Rachana Agarwala, Founder, House of Pepe, said, “My son Varchasv is our inspiration to start this journey of providing parents with a one-stop solution for their children’s well-being and development needs while they are away working. As working professionals, I and my husband Ankush faced the same anxiety-inducing thoughts regarding the well-being of our son. From his haircut to his exercise regime, we wanted it to be professionally delivered to him. Seeing that gyms and exquisite salon services are omnipresent for adults but are overlooked in the case of children, we founded House of Pepe to provide joyful, fun-filled activities to the children for their overall development.”
Envisioning adding more activities for the children in Kolkata, Rachana says, through House of Pepe, they strive to extend quality childcare services as a one-of-its-kind experiential and development facility for a stress-free parenting journey.
