Working Group set up to prepare guidelines for National Programme for Creche and Daycare Facilities
The above proposal envisages the facilities of early childhood care, early stimulation for children below 3 years, pre-school education (3-6 years), health care services including immunization & growth monitoring, supplementary nutrition, sleeping facilities, drinking water & sanitation facilities. The Working Group would also deliberate upon incentives/ facilities to be provided to implementing agencies.
It is expected that the proposed programme would be applicable across the country including unorganized sector/private and public sector organizations.
