    SERRIC is managed by the Sri Lanka Army and is established for children with special needs in military families. While special care and attention is given to children with disabilities and impairments, the centre is open to all children and is an information hub to learn and acquire knowledge in child development.

    Situated at Army Married Quarters in Manningtown, Narahenpita the centre is especially designed to suit the various needs of the children at SERRIC.

    With approximately over 400 children requesting services from military families, SERRIC is able to provide academic services to approximately150 children at any given time, services to nearly 500 children on a rotation basis and in house accommodation for 40 children as per the need of their need.

    SERRIC does not operate as a school nor is it a children’s home. Established to cater for services beyond academics and care giving, SERRIC provides resources, an environment to conduct research and a freely open portal for information. Specializing in workshops and seminars SERRIC will provide an opportunity to those who are interested in child development and special education.

    We are backed by an imminent group of resource persons in academics, health, engineering and designing to ensure that children receive the best possible care and assistance. Further, it gives an opportunity for professionals in isolated fields work together towards a common goal.
