Today it was first experience for my son and he could actually connect and understand the story of Ganga. He narrated the entire story after the session. Appreciate the efforts

My 3 year old sat for a story for the first time ! She usually likes poems but she was so engaged while watching the story and regularly asking questions about the things she couldn’t understand. We really liked that. Thank you so much.

It was our first time attending story time and my daughter loved it. She was engaged the whole time and loved the quizzes that Samta offered. Illustrations were awesome and colorful and content was approachable for kids. Thanks Samta Aunty, we’ll join again soon!

As someone that grew up with a mom that got the local moms together to teach our culture , religion and even dance….when i moved to Illinois, i was missing this and felt even more worried once I became a mom. Now a mom to a 3 year old son, I came across Virtual PreSkool’s complimentary story time . I was so impressed . From the teacher’s way of starting the story time with namaste to ending it with a prayer …to her subtle ways of introducing hindi words while explaining the story of Ganga in english…everything was perfect. Although my son’s attention span doesn’t seem to be there with virtual stuff, i have enrolled in updates about this program so when he is ready I will definitely make sure he attends. Kudos to you and your mission. I’ll definitely be spreading the word.

Samta is a great storyteller and kept my daughters, Isha (7) and Rhea(9), busy and intrigued while making them feel welcomed at her virtual hindi story telling zoom.It was our first time attending the Saturday session. She emphasised on some great encouraging words in hindi like “SHABAASH” and making them aware to the children. It was a happy session.
