Crèche - Early Childhood Care And Education
Under the Rajiv Gandhi National Creche Scheme 152 creches functioning in Karnataka; 30 in Bangalore and 122 in the Districts since 2006.
Every day, nutritious mid day meals were provided and medical check ups organized. The play way methods of education with regular monitoring ensured that the crèches were run and prepared the children for formal education in due course
In late 2016, the Ministry of Women and Child Development sent an order to close down crèche units from 1st January 2017. So a well run programme has come to a halt. The grant from the Government for a period of April to December 2016 is still pending . The audited accounts have been submitted . We await the grant.
The crèche programme has been one of the most successful projects undertaken by KSCCW and gave direct access to implement the all round development of children in a formative stage.
The Council has decided to run 2 units in Jayamahal and 1 unit in RT Nagar, Bangalore where donors are prepared to support running of the crèches
Generous contributions from Prema Devi Bhartia Charitable Trust, Mr. Dale Welsh, Mind Tree, Ace designers Ltd, Pramod Ashraya (Regd), Mr. Rikutec Richter, Murugappa Morgan Thermal Ceramics Ltd Chennai, and other philanthropists have helped us to raise the standard of our crèche units. We hope to run more units when additional financial assistance is available from philanthropists, organization / individuals.
