“The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by.”  Alek Wek 


Have you ever stopped to think about why we celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and holidays? It’s not just a festive thing to do, it’s a way to stop, cherish and reaffirm the things that we value in our lives.

We show how much we care about our families when we celebrate their birthdays; we underline how important our relationships are when we celebrate anniversaries; and when we celebrate holidays and other significant days — such as Onam, Independence Day, Book Day or Friendship Day — we demonstrate to those around us, especially our children, where our values lie. 

Our Onam celebration on the 4th was a heart-warming, colourful experience for all the children. The skit by K2, the dance by the support staff, the ‘AthaPoo’ done by the children and most of all the little ones dressed in their Kerala Best- all added to the ambiance and joy of the celebration. Truly a memory made for life.

Save the next date –

Grandparents Day’ – We regret to announce the change in date once again. Truly it is unfortunate but really due to reasons beyond our control- The new and yes final date will now be- 27th September 2019.  09:30 am – 12:00 pm. This is exclusively for all grandparents to be with us and have an enjoyable time at ELC.
