‘’The starting point of all achievement is desire.’’

– Napolean Hill

And it was our strong desire to bring about a change in early education that led to the establishment of ELC. We started as a grassroots movement based on the ‘Four Elements’ approach inspired largely by the works of John Holt, J Krishnamurthy, Maria Montessori, and SugathaMitra. Today, ELC is the recipient of ‘India’s Promising Preschools of the Future – 2017/18’ award by the prestigious Education World magazine.

 In addition, we were given special recognition for our contribution to the field of ‘Innovation in the curriculum’. For the first time, an award in this category was granted to any pre-school from Mangalore. This award also cemented ELC’s position in the list of leading preschools in India.


ELC is on a mission to uphold the preciousness of childhood by offering fun academic and enrichment programmes at Playschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten levels for the little ones between the ages of 18 months to six years.


An economically independent and vibrant community that consistently provides the highest standards of excellence and innovation in learning within a stimulating nurturing environment
