The Startup School is in its fifth month, and the impact on our young entrepreneurs has been positive and encouraging. Keeping in mind that they are doing a dual curriculum - IB and Entrepreneurship, the rewards are impressive. We asked parents on how the programme has impacted their children?
Their feedback was unanimous:
- Thinking horizons have expanded.
- Sharing ideas with greater conviction.
- An increased sense of responsibility with the ability to make choices.
- A noticeable change in asking What If questions.
Such feedback reinforce the purpose of education at Indus - life entrepreneurship.
With warm regards,
"My daughter's schooling initiation was quite a journey for us. We spent a lot of time and resources to look for the right one and just when my daughter was getting used to a formal physical school, the pandemic struck! It was getting difficult for us to keep her constructively engaged. Initially we were extremely worried as our kid missed an entire year of formal education plus she had no clue what everyone was doing during these online classes, and then I saw my kid opening up for the first time on camera - it just clicked! It is a different thing when the child is present physically and when the child is connected just through the screen and you made it so smooth for them to be there, to listen, and to communicate.
There is a lot of effort that goes into it; we felt that, in the current situation, this is the best option to continue her learning while at home. School has managed to target every aspect of the physical school in their online learning sessions. We were anxious about the learning outcomes because of the limited screen-time and learning hours involved. But as the sessions progressed, we found the teachers constantly encouraging children to actively participate through songs and other engagements. All these activities keep children busy not only during school time but also throughout the day as they play at home. Entire team is super pro-active in coordinating, organizing and executing as they focus on each child .It is beautiful to witness the teaching. This allows us as parents to become absolutely comfortable and we as parents also enjoyed her session’s .We thank the management for making a seamless transition from physical to online school. Looking forward to a long term and happy relationship. A happy school of happy children! "

Going to school and finding happiness was the ultimate paradox for our daughter Abhisarika. It was a horrific experience for her in her first school. We literally went searching every single premise and went through lots of suggestions and recommendations. And eventually we came across Indus Early Learning. Ms. Sonali with all her brief and apt verses illumined all those dark doubts which all parents have. And Yes! Those are not only the words and promises, but a uniform palpable sea of stories where every single child will long to splash in!

After a lot of research and discussions, I zeroed in on Indus International School Bangalore. Thus my 4 yr old ,Mia joined their Koramangala branch .From that tensed first day of school to date , my only problem with Indus is that my daughter now prefers school to home .With Mia it’s mainly because the school keeps her on her toes with a good balance of fun activities like dance , sports , music etc., along with education. The curriculum is well planned and executed even better.3 Months into Indus, she can speak Spanish, play a keyboard and chess. Her teacher Miss Meera is almost like her second mother, she’s well qualified and someone you can absolutely trust. The Head of Centre is very grounded and approachable, always striving to make an already excellent school BETTER.
COMFORTING THE STUDENTS FROM EVERY ASPECT
IELC Koramangala excels in all aspects of an ideal preschool. The teachers practice the latest and international methods of teaching wherein the learning abilities and individual needs of each child are respected and given due importance. The school management and its policies are both children and parent friendly. The Head of Centre, Ms. Sonali Malhotra, has always valued the opinions of parents and addressed their concerns. Also, the school provides frequent opportunities for parent-teacher interactions through which parents gain insight into the learning process and progress of their children. IELC Koramangala is an excellent preschool.

Indus IELC has proven to be the perfect fit for my preschooler. The intimate feel of the building creates a comfortable environment that is not too daunting for a first-timer, and the staff reinforce this with their warm hands-on approach. The pace and standard of learning have been wonderful to see, as it's always with an element of fun that makes learning enjoyable. I have done, and will continue to, recommend Indus IELC for its professionalism, clear vision and sincere commitment to their pupils.
