The Dolphin Kids™ foundation is based on solid neuroscience, child development and behavioral research. Not only is every lesson based on real science, but the environment of Dolphin Kids™ – which incorporates natural sunlight and child-friendly materials, healthy snacks and positive body language and speech tones – are all grounded and supported by the latest scientific research.

In addition, exquisite detail and attention has been paid to translating this research into practical learning experiences for kids that are conducive to a child’s learning, development and applicable to a family’s everyday life.

The Dolphin Kids™ theory is based on the #1 national bestselling book parenting book ‘The Dolphin Parent’ (winner of the US News 2015 International Book Award in Parenting/Family) written by founder Dr. Shimi Kang. The Dolphin Parent has been recognized for its solid scientific research-based content, including a star review by the professional American Journal of Libraries, an in-depth feature by investigative journalists at Der Spiegel (Germany), and endorsements and translations by international academic institutions such as Fudan University (China).

This global critical acclaim for the Dolphin Kids™ method from notable organizations, as well as the thousands of patients whose lives have been positively impacted under Dr. Kang’s guidance, speaks to the philosophy’s strong scientific research, practical application, and ability to transcend cultural stereotypes and limitations.
