A crèche, daycare or nursery is a childcare centre where babies, toddlers, and young children are cared for in a safe and stimulating surrounding. Crèche plays an important role in child’s development. It prepares the kid to face the challenges from the very beginning before they join school. The idea of crèche is training and preparing a kid from trained teachers. Teachers help the kids to know about different important things like discipline, eating habits, diet and playing games. Crèche gives a child friendly environment to make the kid active all the time.
In order to pay special attention to the health and nutrition of the Rural & Tribal children, ‘Satyaniketan’ is running 34 Crèche Centres, covering the child population of around 920 children, of the age between 0-6 years. All these Crèche Centres are being monitored by ‘Central Social Welfare Board, New Delhi’, under ‘Rajiv Gandhi National Crèche Scheme’. These Crèche Centres are conducted by the trained lady staff (workers & helpers) who pay full attention to inculcate good habits among the children. Facilities like Sleeping, Healthcare, Supplementary Nutrition, Immunization, and Entertainment are being provided in these Crèche Centres. A doctor pays regular visit to all Crèche Centres.
It is said that ‘Children are great imitators; give them something great to imitate’. Really, ‘Satyaniketan’ has been doing the tremendous work in the process of Child Development, especially in Rural & Tribal area.
“If we wish to create a lasting peace we must begin with the children.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
