How we started, What makes us different, and

are we the right fit for your family?

We four mothers in our own individual ways wanted to curate a space for children which was impregnable, a fun place to blend learning with play; an individualized curriculum which can be customized for each child and a place where everyone would love going back to! When we four came together we were able to create this space were learning Indian Culture, learning through play, spending time exploring nature, and spreading compassion became pillars, a preschool called Vedic Lore was born.

We believe that every moment can be a learning opportunity, especially in the right environment. We believe in “child-centeredness” and that learning should be internally motivated. Children are always encouraged to participate in activities but never forced to do anything they do not want to do.

Neha Arora

Co-founder & People Head

Is an MBA in Human Resources. Working in HR meant interacting with all sorts of people, understanding their psyche, facing their problems and coming out with solutions which not only helped them but worked to reach common goals. After she had two kids of her own, taking care of them had become a full-time job in itself and with little or no support from families sitting miles away, she sought out for help and found various options but none could really have an effect which could resemble mothers devoted and loving care. With such a persona, she intends to bring her personal experience to create strong bonds with parents and nurture their bundles of joy by welcoming them to the Vedic Lore household.
