The word ‘Shreyas’ has a deep meaning, which is analogous to well-being, beneficial, blessed.
The welfare, spiritual growth and character building of a child are deep-rooted in the foundation of Shreyas. The institute is devoted to holistic development, value-based education and the wellbeing of children.
Shreyas was designed by the famous architect Shri Balkrishna Doshi. Later, additional buildings were constructed by Shri Kamal Mangaldas.
