The pre-school going by the name, Ekam Early Learning Centre, is all set to open for kids. On February 19, Samantha shared a video in which she and her friend Shilpa are seen talking to different people who are involved in shaping the pre-school building.

The video suggests that the idea of running a pre-school began in early 2019 and it is about to become a reality. Reportedly, the Ekam Early Learning Centre will open to kids on February 22. Being a Reggio-inspired school, it focuses on the environment being the third teacher with adults and co-students being the first and second teachers. The school promotes both indoor and outdoor activities and also focusses on bringing the children closer to nature. The campus is environmentally safe and uses organic and natural products.
