ABUNDANT LOVE, CARE AND SPACE
The school is exceptional when it comes to the teachers. The teachers are extremely nice to the kids and ensure that they are learning in an environment of love and care with proper personal attention. My 4-year-old loves going to the school which in itself is a testament to the love he gets there. The premises are homely and hygienic with abundant space that a growing child needs with proper supervision and security. Will definitely recommend the Indus IELC in my circle.

PERFECT FIT FOR MY PRE-SCHOOLER
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 reinforces 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.

A SECOND HOME FOR MY SON
My son entered the school campus as an almost 3-year-old about 1.5 years back and today it's become like his second home! He loves his school, his teachers who go out of their way to care for every child, we are in touch with them 24x7, they are open about school's policies, procedures and they actually treat my child as one of their own! I guess Indus is the best start any child and their worried parents could ask for when it comes to academics.

PROUD PARENTS OF AMAIRA (PREP 2)
Testimony for IELC cannot be expressed in words. It gives us, as parents, immense satisfaction about the decision which we took in 2019. There is a perfect alignment between the values we as parents want to infuse in Amaira and what the “Gurus”(Teachers) of the school are focussing on. They are building not just “Leaders of Tomorrow” but also “Citizens of Today”.
IELC always has great activities that continue to inspire children and their parents. Amaira loves her nurturing teachers, who encourage her to grow and also have fun with her. Their focus is on instilling positive values and compassion in the students.
The atmosphere and learning environment are optimal for all young children. All of the students receive individual attention. The children’s and parents’ needs are addressed, and the staff takes a special interest in kids. We can be at ease when Amaira is at school knowing she is cared for, safe, and in a place that facilitates her future success.

MOTHER OF WILHELM KORSHOLM, PRE-NURSERY
Wilhelm joined IELC in Pre-Nursery when he was 1 year and 5 months. The teachers and assistants were welcoming, and soon Wilhelm was the first one to run around in the morning at home shouting “shoes on, shoes on”, so we could go to school, even on the weekends. It was quite apparent that IELC was the right place for our little gold nugget, even though we did have some concerns about sending him this young to school. English is not his first language, but it is truly amazing to see the development of his language skills. We are convinced that at this point he knows more English than his native tongue, a true testimony of the interaction between teachers and pupils at IELC. I could also support the Cottonlengo project by teaching children with disabilities to use a computer. I believe it is a great initiative from the school to help the community.

MOTHER OF SAMAR KATARIA, NURSERY
The year 2019 - 2020 has been a very eventful year. My second kid started schooling at IELC Whitefield, which was the best decision we ever made. I, being a PAC member at first seemed a daunting task, but it was a seamless process with immense cooperation from teachers, support staff, parents, my fellow PAC members and most importantly Ms. Priyanka. Whatever queries, suggestions or feedback we had, they were always addressed and were always taken into consideration. They have gone out of their way to make changes in food menus, parking issues, and many other suggestions. The teachers have always had the "can do" attitude, giving special attention to each child and to his/her needs. Nursery teachers have gone out of their way to make the kids comfortable and the support of assistants has been wonderful. Being a PAC member gives you an insight and it definitely changes the perspective. Having huge support from parents of Nursery definitely made things easier. I am sure the new session will also be equally magical and fun and hoping for another fun year soon.

I was feeling lost when I arrived in India 4 and a half years back. We visited many schools with huge campuses, like Indus International School- main campus and TISB. However, it was unthinkable for me to leave my 3-year-old child in such huge campuses. They looked like universities.
I was looking for a child-friendly school, where my child would be cared for and pampered. Young children need their emotional health to be taken care of at this age to lay a strong foundation for adult life. A school where self-confidence is encouraged and enables their personality to grow.
Lastly, we visited IELC-Whitefield. We were welcomed very well, Roxane immediately felt at ease and I felt good. The teachers were warm, patient with children, and answered all my questions.
There are so many co-curricular activities offered at school which allows the school to be multidisciplinary. This year, in addition to the extra-curricular activities offered at school, after-school activities were also offered - football, karate, pottery, music, Spanish, etc. Both my girls (Roxane, Kalista) and I always had a great time in the after school pottery class. No preparation, no mess, no cleaning up, just enjoying being with my children. Carpe Diem!
The school encourages parents who wish to invest time or share their knowledge with children. The teaching team involves parents and allows us to display our creativity by taking part in the preparation of the school's big show and various festivals during the year. With parents after school English lessons, I was able to participate in “English for adults” lessons which were specially designed for us. The classes helped mothers to communicate better with our children who learned English before us and faster. Everything is well thought and designed in a way that parents are highly involved at school.
The school focuses on being benevolent while challenging each child to his/her best capacity in many areas. IELC-Whitefield has given my children an appetite to learn, always be curious and be less shy. The school has inculcated essential values, taught them to respect differences and the basics of happiness. I am delighted to have chosen IELC-Whitefield, and my daughters are lucky to have started their first years of learning in a school that allows them to express themselves.
In the end, special credit to the efforts of school management and teachers for facing the difficult times, during the pandemic. We are abroad and stuck out of India, but our daughters are still able to participate in the online classes and sessions with their classmates. This is an amazing example of adaptability and agility which we proudly explain to our French friends. Indus is an example of practicing these values in action. Great!
PARENT OF MATEO GAONA MONTEILLER, PREP1
We are very happy that Mateo joined IELC Whitefield this year. The school’s friendly environment helped him to feel comfortable very quickly and now he is very happy to go to school. He has made great progress in English and is more confident talking in English to an audience. He has always been social and outgoing and the school has definitely helped him polish these skills in a positive way by involving him in school plays which he really enjoyed. The school also set a few goals for him for the year. Goal setting helped Mateo to overcome his fear of putting his head under the water in swimming and now he enjoys swimming.

SMITI AND KARL - PARENT OF NEIL RECEPTION
Indus Early Learning has been a wonderful experience for our son and ourselves. The teachers are passionate and knowledgeable, always taking a deep personal interest in the unique personalities of the children in the class. I have appreciated how they have observed Neil and helped him grow, with very specific and sensitive feedback. The level of involvement for parents is unmatched. I always know what is going on in school, and it is inclusive without being overwhelming.
Our testimonial would be incomplete without a shout out to Neil’s teachers on how they supported us enormously during a personally trying period. While being posted abroad with Neil, they made sure he saw his friends every week through video calls. That helped him feel part of the group. Many thanks to the strong, amazing staff that make this school the best in Bangalore!

MEKHLA GUSSAIN PARENT OF VIRAAT PREP 1
It is our firm belief that the hallmarks of a truly exemplary school are professionally committed teachers, a cohesive staff, effective leadership, community involvement, a safe & caring environment, and a holistic curriculum. IELC Whitefield delivers and excels on all these fronts and as a parent, we are secure in the knowledge that our child(Viraat) is being tutored in the most conducive environment which fosters the development of his intellectual and emotional facets thereby enabling him to become a truly Global citizen of the future. Each day, Viraat is welcomed into an equally caring school family which encompasses the teachers and the supporting staff. The student’s progress, milestones and overall development is religiously updated and discussed with the parents in fine detail regularly through open communication channels. The fact that Viraat looks forward to attending school every day with boundless enthusiasm is a fitting testament to the fantastic Student-School relationship. We are thankful to IELC Whitefield and indeed the wider Indus fraternity for providing ‘a home away from home’ for Viraat!
