The Centre recognizes that child care is not just the responsibility of women and families but also of institutions in the public sphere like the College where workers/students, especially women who are also parents are constrained by the simultaneous responsibilities of childcare and work. Hence the College has provided for the Day Care Centre on the campus so that all the staff can access its services.
The DCC is open for children between the ages of 3 months to 10 years of teaching and non-teaching staff and students of the College. Timings are set keeping in mind the special needs of employee parents and hence the DCC is open from 9 am to 4 pm. The DCC provides variety of facilities keeping in mind the different needs of specific age groups. To ensure age appropriate stimulation, the activities for children are divided across two groups – pre-primary (2 ½ to 4 years) and primary (4 to 10 years).
The DCC ensures child friendly environment with large colourful displays and activity centres with play materials. It has infrastructural facilities like toys, mattresses, cradles for young children, colourful crockery, cycles and child friendly furniture that ensure children are comfortable within the DCC. To foster a learning environment, educational CDs of rhymes, alphabets, stories and songs are screened for the children.
The infrastructure for the Day Care Centre has been put in place with a UGC grant in 2010-11. The Day Care Centre is well furnished with toys & games. For more information you may have contact with the following person whose contact detail are given below:-
