Everyone has an equal right to an education

The purpose behind starting Grace Carmel School, attached to the Love Care Centre, was to provide education of a good standard to the children of the Love Care Centre who were unable to attend other schools. The medium of instruction is English following Matriculation syllabus. It was started with 40 children with 5 teachers to tutor these children.

Education is one of the primary goals of the Love care Center. Therefore, the Center insists that every child should be provided with a firm education and to ensure that their future is assured with a vocation of their choice and satisfied living.

Education is the most valuable asset that we can give to these children. When children started arriving at the center, they did not have sufficient exposure to education. Therefore the Management decided to provide basic education with learned teachers at the Center, so they could be brought in level with educational standards provided by the State Government.

Grace Carmel Nursery & Primary School

The purpose of starting the Grace Carmel School in the year 2009 at Kancheepuram was to provide education of a good standard exclusively for the children of Love Care Centre.

Along with the Love Care Centre, Grace Carmel School was shifted to the land at Arpakkam, Kancheepuramm. After shifting the school, the management decided to open up the education provided by the school to children in surrounding villages for minimal fees.

On request of the local people at Arpakkam, the Management decided to provide education not only to the LCC children but also to the children dwelling around this village at affordable fees. From April 2011, the school opened its gates to the local village children. This was done as a gesture of noble service for the betterment of the society.


To improve the standard of education the school has introduced Educom, (Smart Class). Students were able to understand & learn the lessons better through -videos.

Mr V.S Ramana, Head Corporate Communications - from L&T who is such a big support to LCC children, donated EDUCOM – SMART CLASS.


Every year we organize Medical Camp from various Hospitals with known Doctors from Kancheepuram. Very often Meenakshi Medical College & Hospital organize Medical Camp for the Love Care Center children.

Twice L&T organized for a Medical camp for all the LCC and Grace Carmel School Children.
