We are very happy to send Arshia to ipsaa. She enjoys a lot with her friends here and is like a second home for her. She is being taken care very well at ipsaa and is happy to be at ipsaa.
Parent of Arshia
The real proof of the success of ipsaa for Madhav is that he looks forward to it. For me to be able to focus on my work knowing that my son is in a safe loving environment is a blessing. Keep up the good work of supporting working mothers. Best Wishes.
Parent of Madhav
Continue doing the great work. Nurturing staff and positive environment is what I like about the place. Proud of my decision of associating Avi with ipsaa.
Parent of Avi
I begin by thanking you and your team. Dhairya is speaking fluently and expresses himself more with words than sounds. We have also noticed that he is careful with organizing things, putting them where they belong and it’s a delight to see him doing so. He loves outdoor activities and is already socializing with other children.
Parent of Dhairya
Pritish has always been a fuzzy eater and I always struggled to feed him. But mostly end up disappointed and demotivated to try new recipes and make him eat. It has been 2 years and almost 90% of times I checked with him, I realised that he likes the food at ipsaa. He eats well there. It's great that we are associated with you guys! Thank you so much!
Parent of Pritish
I want to express my sincere thanks to the school management and especially to the pre-nursery team, as teachers are really very friendly and caring so they are able to make a child learn in their own homelike environment. Only because of that Iva settled down quickly and now she has started enjoying her school too. The main beauty is that at ipsaa, each and every child gets personal attention and care too and I really appreciate it.
Parent of Iva Kaswan
I am a satisfied mother, seeing my child pick up good and useful words, picking up good things and becoming social. Every parent is aspirational, but finding mentors and teachers as aspirational as a family is rare. At ipsaa, we can trust our children are in safe hands. Happy and content that we chose ipsaa and not just any other day care.
Parent of Aaryan
Trisha really enjoys her time at ipsaa. It’s evident from the fact that she neither cries when I leave her there nor when I pick her up. As parents, we feel relieved and at ease when we leave her at ipsaa. She learns new things, gets a chance to socialise, tries new foods and plays new games. Very Satisfied.
