What makes us the best!


House of Words

We have over 10,000 books on the shelves, and our library is a bright, cozy space, well stocked with picture books, early readers, novels, and collections of various kinds in English and other languages.

Acres of Fun

A playground with over 20,000 sq ft of free play space is what we are proud of. The play space comprises of the sand play area, a mud station, lego block station, doll house, art easel, fountains, a rock-climbing station and what not…

Not just a word, learning the world too!

Learning happens when the textbooks are closed and the mind is allowed to explore the world of possibilities. Our field trips are not just incredible and unique, but valuable life learning experiences.

Safe transport

To ensure safe travel, we have our own school buses designed and equipped as per international standards, manned by trained drivers and personnel.

Individualized attention and self-paced learning

In order to deliver high-quality, individualised education, ELC has a maximum of 10 students per teacher. This ensures that each student is given the proper amount of attention and focus.

Child care at its best

We are the largest day care centre for infants, toddlers and kids in Mangalore. Unlike most day care centres, we do not rely on televisions or electronic media for kids, instead have story telling and play time for them.

Our society, our responsibility

We have taken upon ourselves to set up libraries at various Government Schools. Our teachers & parents proudly volunteer to teach science to the kids at such Schools.

Making a difference - The Special Needs Program

We work with prominent hospitals to provide one-on-one speech, behavioral and occupational therapy for children with special needs.

ELC Primary (Classes I to III)

Our Primary School Curriculum is a blend of the Indian Council of Secondary Education  (ICSE) and the Cambridge International Primary Programme (IGCSE), We offer an exciting and creative learning environment, with an inter-disciplinary appreciation of languages, Mathematics, Sciences and Social Sciences as individual and integrated subjects. A choice between Kannada and Hindi as second/third language is offered, which helps build a strong foundation in Indian Languages.


Montessori Education

At the core of Montessori Method of education is the belief that the work of education is to nurture the future of humanity, and that the human spirit is precious, limitless and needs to be inspired.  At ELC, we follow the Montessori Method of education to help children become active seekers of knowledge.

Parents in the United States often hear (and stress about) how students in other countries perform better than our children in math and science. 


Don’t tell your kids that they are. More than three decades of research shows that a focus on “process”—not on intelligence or ability—is key to success in school and in life.
