In order to make ends meet or even just to pursue ambitious career options, mothers are often required to leave their little ones back home or under the care of a relative. This model, in the long run, often creates worries as the child’s needs are not as appropriately met with, as the mother would have wanted.
A crèche is an ultimate solution to such a problem for mothers all over the world and it is about time that women in India also get to benefit from this.
What is a crèche?
A crèche basically is a facility where parents leave their children while the parents work. The children are provided with all the care and attention they need in the absence of their parents. Not just their nutrition but their holistic development is looked into at a crèche.
Crèches are designed to take care of children up to the age of 6 years.
What are the broader objectives of the Rajiv Gandhi National Crèche scheme?
The scheme aims at providing day-care facilities for children from 6 months to 6 years. It is to improve and tend to the needs of children in the absence of parents who would be toiling hard at work. A crèche does more than just provide day-care; it also provides a balanced environment for the child where holistic development is ensured.
Crèches even conduct sessions and workshops for parents or caretakers regarding better childcare and parenting.
Crèches are excellent solutions to parents who worry about their children but also have ambitions to work hard and make a career for themselves. Having children should support one’s growth, not restrict it.
