Early Childhood and Care

The Challenge

Anganwadis, - rural mother and child care centres- were started by the Central government in 1975 as part of the Integrated Child Development Service program to combat child hunger and malnutrition. These centres play an important role in supporting the development of children from 3 to 6 years of age. The initiative, however, is not without its challenges. The anganwadis need support in

  • Adequate training of anganwadi workers
  • Refresher training and monitoring
  • Fortifying classrooms with learning aids
  • Creating awareness about the concept of early learning/literacy

The National Education Policy 2020 aims to formalize the pre-school structure and suggests inclusion of children from ages 3 to 8. This has opened up new avenues for positive intervention providing ample scope for overall development of children in their early years.
