Chairperson of Presidium, Mother’s Pride and The Knowledge Tree, Sudha Gupta's is an extraordinary story of an educationist who had the courage to pursue her dreams.
She became an entrepreneur when she started a preschool in 1996. What started then, as a one-room operation, is today a diversified group, with India’s most loved preschool and the fastest growing chain of schools in Delhi-NCR. Mother’s Pride Preschool redefined the nature of early education in the country with its scientific approach, specialised staff, R&D, and emphasis on child psychology.
To bring the concept of holistic education to formal education, she established Presidium Senior Secondary School.

To realize its goal, the school champions the concept of holistic education, focusing on academics, life skills and talents.
