ABOUT INDUS

Welcome to Indus Early Learning
Centre, Koramangala , started in January 2015, at Koramangala, Bangalore by the Indus Trust. The school caters to pre-primary education for children from the Age 1.5 Years to 6 Years.

Why we are the Best Preschool in Koramangala, Bangalore

The IELC Curriculum Is Organised Into Five Areas Of Learning

Language Development

Preschool education concentrates on the basics of oral communication, speaking and listening, reading and comprehending simple texts and encouraging writing skills. This area of learning helps children stay ahead of the curve by giving them the motivation to start writing and reading with enthusiasm.

Numeracy

This area helps children develop their skills in logical operations, like counting, sorting, matching, creating patterns, problem-solving and working with shapes and measures. We help them build a strong mathematical foundation through practical tasks, stories, songs, games and imaginative play. We also help children understand how mathematics can be applied in real life, during their pre-school education.

Science & Social Studies

Children are inquisitive from birth. Every day, they are exposed to a whole range of sights and sounds, which stimulate their curiosity. At Indus Early Learning Centre, Koramangala, we help them develop age appropriate knowledge, skills and understanding to make sense of the world around them, and learn from life itself.

Social & Physical Education

To become true leaders, children learn to strive for success through the all-round development of their personal, social, emotional and physical selves. This provides them with excellent opportunities to succeed in all areas of learning.

Creative Arts

Exploring and Learning the arts helps children experience a unique integration of the body and mind. We encourage children to indulge in and appreciate different forms of creative expressions like art, music, dance and role play, which makes Indus Early Learning Centre Koramangala one among the top pre-primary Schools in Bangalore.

Our Programmes

The aim of the IELC curriculum is to provide a transdisciplinary curriculum which is engaging, exciting, challenging and relevant to the children who fall into the age bracket of 1.5 – 6 years.

GRADE: PRE-NURSERY

 

The Pre-Nursery Programme is designed to nurture young children, while providing the physical, emotional, and intellectual stimulus to help them optimize their potential for learning and growth. Our programme caters to students from ages 1.5 years to 2 years. Play based learning: Children learn best when they are experimenting and using their imagination, creativity and tactile senses to experience the world. We use the play-based approach, to ensure children learn even complex concepts, easily.

We guide the child on the road to discovery and inquiry, through our research- based standards and assessments along six developmental domains imparted through the play-based learning pedagogy. Our programme involves deep engagements that cater to sensorial awareness and literacy development through Story Time, Water Play, Sand Play, Library Time, Celebration of festivals and special days, Field Trips, Puppet shows and skits.

 

GRADE: NURSERY

 

In Nursery Programme, a broad-based curriculum integrates a genuine love for learning through stories and language and expression, along with a focus on numerical concepts and exploration of the world around them. This thorough foundation is underpinned by a strong commitment to the social, emotional and cultural awareness of each child and realized through a creative and interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. Arts, sports, music and dance are seamlessly incorporated into the curriculum, affording multi-sensorial and comprehensive learning opportunities.

The primary focus is to help children gain independence socially, physically and emotionally whilst giving them opportunities to develop their linguistic, mathematical, creative and cognitive skills and helping them explore the world around them and orient themselves with the environment. We follow an inquiry-based approach that facilitates children’s curiosity and experiential form of learning, that goes beyond academics, catering to students’ signature strengths.

GRADE: RECEPTION

 

Our Reception programme caters to students from ages 3 years to 4 years. The curriculum encourages children to ask questions, plan investigations, explore various outcomes, and reach credible and logical conclusions, with teachers as facilitators. The curriculum is a balanced blend of five essential aspects: concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes and action.

Language Development in our Reception is encouraged through active engagement with the three strands of language- oral language, visual language and written language. Logical thinking and numeracy skills are developed through an application-based approach through five strands, namely, Number System, Data Handling, Measurement, Pattern & Function and Shape & Space. Social and emotional growth is nurtured through our unique leadership curriculum that balances development of the Intelligence and emotional quotient. The innate creativity and curiosity of students is further nurtured through our music and movement programme and creative arts curriculum.

 

GRADE: PREP ONE

 

In Prep One, we construct an environment and pedagogy that is secure and enriched, where students are encouraged to become lifelong learners, both inside and outside the classroom. With a strong focus on conceptual learning and development of leadership skills, children engage in a transdisciplinary curriculum that meets international benchmarks for Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Social Studies and PSPE (Personal, Social and Physical Education).

Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of communication and thinking skills through a culture that encourages learner agency. The leadership curriculum at Indus plays a pivotal role in progressing toward our aim of unlocking the individual child’s potential. Leadership is developed by encouraging self-awareness, thereby enabling students to discover their complete range of multiple and emotional intelligences. Sports, community involvement, fine & performing arts and robust outdoor activities lend themselves to the fostering of leadership qualities. The focus is on connecting to self, connecting to nature and connecting to the community.

GRADE: PREP TWO

 

We offer the Prep 2 Programme for children aged 5 to 6 years of age. The core skills we help students to imbibe and strengthen are critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. The Prep Two environment is warm and inspiring, filled with wonderful learning materials. We believe in following the child and helping them in attaining their potential capabilities. We endeavor to create a strong community where every child’s developmental needs are met and they truly experience the joy of learning.

Prep Two has a distinct curriculum that is designed to challenge and nurture a child’s multiple intelligences and diverse aptitudes and talents, to help them unlock their hidden potential. Learnings in the early year’s program have core language development, units of enquiry with science and social studies as the foundation, second language exposure to Hindi and Spanish, dedicated reading programs that are levelled according to a child’s abilities, Math, Music and Keyboard, Physical Education, Yoga, Coding & SEN/ESL (Special education needs & English as Second Language).

Holistic Environment

CEO’s Message – July 2024

The nature of knowledge is changing. Information is exploding at a furious pace, and the amount of data that will be created by 2025 is expected to reach 180 zettabytes. We are also witnessing the use of machine knowledge. There is a 50% probability that, in the next decade machine thinking may surpass human thinking.

In this scenario, traditional libraries are getting outdated. At Indus, they will be reorganized into Knowledge Hubs with emphasis on self-knowledge; new ways of learning; how to learn, unlearn and relearn; and media literacy. This change over will empower our students, make them good human beings, and lifelong learners.

What Parents Say About Us

“IELC Koramangala has built a strong foundation of early years education for our son, Aditya. The past year being a virtual classroom, the weekly schedules were well balanced with academic sessions as well as activities like book reading, music, art, dance, yoga, etc.

Simple and unique methods are used by teachers to build conceptual foundations of language & math. The school has had timely and engaging parent-teacher connects which has made a meaningful difference to us, especially during this pandemic.

Aditya is so blessed to have had Ms. Meera as his grade teacher. She has been extremely supportive and patient in creating an active and happy learning environment for all the kids. We also admire how fair and attentive she has been to each child in the class throughout the year. Aditya loves school, all thanks to Ms. Meera”

Ms.Ashwini & Mr. Manav

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.

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.

My interaction with Indus Early Learning Centre Koramangala is almost a year old, through my healthy baking community and it's been absolutely wonderful. It has been amazing to see how they give the little children a range of life experiences and skills through creative methods. Their staff has been very involved and supportive each time we have visited the centre. Sonali is a warm and collaborative leader, and her engaging way with the staff, parents and partners like me have always made it an enriching experience to go back to.

Ms. Simran Oberoi Multani

“The best school we could have asked for our daughter who was just 2.4 years when we enrolled her for Nursery at IELC. The last two years have been nothing short of amazing for us. As working parents, we really appreciate the focus on providing healthy lunch and snacks to kids even more.  Our child has grown from a shy and reclusive child to a much more confident and outspoken kid and for that we really commend the teachers and management at Indus. The teaching, activities, focus on circle time, play time, etc. leads to overall development of students.
My husband and I are so grateful to Indus for doing what they do!”

Ms.Neha & Mr.Ashish

“A huge shout out to the teachers and management of Indus Koramangala!! Our daughter has been a part of Indus for only a few weeks now, and already it is hard to keep her away from school. It is hugely challenging to teach children of such a tender age, but your collective passion, commitment and dedication makes it all seem effortless. Kudos on infusing an element of fun in learning and providing a safe haven for our children. Keep it up! “

Ms. Amrita

“I have had the pleasure of sending my children to IELC, Koramangala school. The school has fantastic teachers who have a true passion for teaching such young children.
The school has an affectionate and nurturing environment in which I have witnessed my kid thrive. The school has been a major factor in helping my child to grow and develop through many activities, classes and social-emotional programs, which are a part of their curriculum.
My child has been able to develop her communication skills and the ability to think critically, and she also has developed her social skills. I wish the school all the very best!! Keep it up!!
A big Shout to all the Teachers, Support staff & Ms.Sonali.”

Ms. Sanskriti

The effectiveness of the learning experience at Indus is quite evident in my child's growing confidence, positive outlook and outspokenness. Apart from the improvement in her language skills, her lack of stage fear and ability to think independently is something I rejoice in as a parent.
As young parents, parenthood itself seems daunting at times, but the regular updates along with the inclusive and timely decision-making of the staff have greatly aided us in being more involved and aware of our child's progress. All queries and issues are addressed individually and thoroughly. Moreover, separate programs are conducted for children and parents on various issues like social-emotional learning, life skills, parenting etc that are of paramount importance in this day and age.
I'm truly glad to be a part of this community .

Ms. Lohita

“The Prep 2 teacher Ms. Meera is a gift for each child. She sets up her students for success for their next steps and beyond. Her methods and creativity engage each child at their own independent levels and truly make them flourish. She pours herself into every activity that she creates for her students. It is incredible that the genuine belief she has in each student motivates them to take on new challenges and conquer any obstacle. Ms. Meera transcends the definition of a teacher as she creates incredible little humans. She sees them, listens to them, making them feel their worth. Rishik has loved coming to your class and mimics all you teach him. He had an amazing year, truly filled with laughter, smiles, hugs, songs, fun, exciting learning, and much love.
Thank you for a truly wonderful year, Ms Meera, Ms Piyali and the entire IELCK administration team.”

Ms. Chandni & Mr. Bhuvan

“As Prep 2 is wrapping up for our son, I wanted to share with you our experience at the Indus early learning centre, Koramangala. Our first interaction with Ms .Sonali , the head of centre, convinced us that our child was in the right hands , she is a warm , passionate and understanding person.
Our child started in Nursery , and the teachers have been such a positive influence . They are highly educated, thoughtful, and nurturing. They provide rigorous academic challenges, as well as the tools and strategies needed to meet those challenges. Right from Ms Archana to Ms Meera in prep-2 , were nothing but excellent . We are so happy with the way our son has grown into an independent, self conscious and considerate little human .
The teachers give individual attention and support to a child who needs that special attention , sometimes even after school hours .
The school provides a perfect balance between academics , personal development and physical well-being.
Overall, we are so happy with the school that we’ve joined our little daughters to the Indus Koramangala family, for their pre-schooling .”
