Welcome to my Hindi Pre-k Age 3-5 class! This class is designed for your little ones to have fun learning to speak Hindi.
Learning Through Fun!
In this class I use stories, games, interactive activities and more to teach your little ones. We go on adventures, use creativity, listening skills, art and role play to learn Hindi and Indian culture.
For example, I created an interactive whale adventure for us to do in class. We developed our Hindi ocean vocabulary while simultaneously learning about whales. And the students really enjoyed it!

Some of the Things We’ll Learn
Classes Come With Practice Materials
Ditch the Devanagari…for now.
I don’t teach reading and writing Hindi script. For most children growing up outside the Indian subcontinent, the primary use case is to be able to speak Hindi so they can converse with grandparents, cousins and relatives.
Plus, in my opinion, learning to speak Hindi first, is a more productive and efficient path to learn to read and write. It’s MUCH easier to learn Devanagari after one knows how to speak Hindi.
Your Hindi Pre-k Teacher, Samta Varia
Thank you for your interest in Virtual Hindi Pre-K. What sets my classes apart is that your child will learn via Hindi in a fun, encouraging, and cheerful virtual classroom environment.
That means that while building their Hindi vocabulary and Indian culture knowledge they’ll also learn reading, writing, math, science, art and more.
At this age, your child is starting to learn to read. All of my class materials are phonetically spelled – in English – the way that your child is learning to read. For example the color blue in my pre-k materials is spelled n-e-e-l-a, not nila. The lessons and activities are engaging, interactive, visually stimulating, and fun.
Each class is 45 minutes, as that’s the threshold for this age and virtual learning.
I grew up in Orange County, California and learned Hindi organically. My parents spoke Hindi at home and unlike most kids, I responded in Hindi. I had a standing “date night” with my mom = paratha + a Hindi movie. I’d often pause the movie and ask about words and context that I didn’t understand. And I kept getting better and better.
More about me and I started Virtual PreSkool, here.
Can I try a class before enrolling? Yes. Register for a trial at the discounted rate $25. When you enroll, after the trial you get a full set of sessions. The trial is not part of the enrollment.
Are the classes live or pre-recorded?
Live, small groups; and the children will be able to see and interact with each other.
What is the teaching style? Playful, cheerful, encouraging.
Does the class come with materials? Yes! Everything is provided. Since this is a conversational Hindi class you’ll receive audio recordings but also workbooks designed for this age group to reinforce general knowledge i.e. reading, writing, math.
What happens if we miss a class? It’s recorded and we’ll send you the link, so you can make up the class on your own. Students are also welcome to sit in on another class to make-up the missed class.
Testimonials and Reviews
“You are so patient with the children. My son KEEPS singing songs from class. I’m so happy!”
“Samta, you rock! You are 10x better than her teachers! Patient, thoughtful, and super engaging!”
“Thanks for the class! She had a blast. Still teaching her the flute dance.”
Hindi made fun and easy!
We have tried many many Hindi classes over the the years. Often ending in tears or fears with so much of the focus on writing characters that are not tangible or relevant for our day to day life. Samta does an amazing job teaching by conversational Hindi to our daughter which she can use and be excited about right away. We are amazed at how she breaks down Hindi and provides beautiful, novel, and educational resources that make the learning easy! Our daughter looks forward to class and doing her practice every week! She learned how to have a conversation with her grandparents after just one class! We wish this was around when we were kids!
My boys LOVE their Hindi class!
My boys always look forward to their Hindi class every week. I’m amazed by how much they have learned in 2 months not having spoken a word of Hindi before! Samta always goes above and beyond with each student and is very attentive to their individual needs. Boys love to review the recap email weekly and practice until their next class. Just signed up for another 8 sessions!
Excellent to instill language + culture!
As a mom to two second generation Indian American boys instilling Indian culture and learning Hindi is especially important to me. For the past few years I’ve searched for a class that could offer that while keep my children’s interest and Virtual PreSkool is it. Samta is engaging and knowledgeable. If you want an informative class that will help your child learn Hindi and instill a curiosity to learn more about Indian culture then this class is bar none.
Samta is an amazing teacher. She personalizes the lessons by learning about kids’ interests and using that in her lessons (imagine learning Hindi with PJ Masks characters!!!), gets to know each kid’s learning style, and creates personalized videos for each kid so they can practice newly acquired vocab after class. She is really great at keeping kids’ interest during class, even rowdy 4-5 year olds. Plus, she goes beyond just teaching Hindi; my 4.5-year old is learning things about culture, Indian geographic, and folklore that he never otherwise would.
