Education and Learning Centre (ELC)

The Education and Learning Centre (ELC) located at Curepipe and SOS Kindergarten Beau Bassin provide inclusive early childhood education and development.

The children of the toddlers’ and pre-primary sections participate in various activities for their cognitive, social and emotional development.  

The toddlers’ group for kids aged two to three years puts emphasis on stimulation and age-appropriate psycho-motor development.

Former pupils of the ELC attending primary schools may also receive remedial educational support after school hours at the Centre.


Origin -  A philanthropic initiative 
The project was implemented with the generous donation of the land from Mr Gilbert Renel and financial support from SOS Luxembourg. The project started its operation in April 2011.
