Pre-school /Kindergarten/Prep Care is another popular method in India for child care where couples drop the child in Prep Classes, and the employee there takes care of children and prepares them for upcoming years of school life.

Why Most People Will Never Be Great At CHILD CARE

The need for Child Care in Indian Perspective: 

It is essential to understand the reasons that make child care services essential not only into metro cities but also in tier II & III cities.

The rise of Nuclear families (couple with children) where both husband & wife are working around the clock is one traditional reason. Still, at the same time, we also can’t ignore the fundamental fact that there are more single-mother households, over 5.4%, than single-father families. If we see rising above the statistics, one thing is visible in crystal clear manner that even they do need child care for their children when they get engaged in their office hours of professional life.

A recent report by Initiative for What Works to Advance Women and Girls in the Economy (IWWAGE) has revealed that 29 percent of females in urban areas and 42 percent of females in rural areas are engaged in employment. Another key feature of the same report is that women can dedicate only 5.8 hours a day on average to their home-based businesses, which is intermittently interrupted by 6.6 hours of unpaid caregiving work, so if this 6.6 hours of caregiving can be given by someone professionally or in the family itself ensuring the proper growth of the child, possibly the women may get time to boost her business in place of changing the nappy of her baby.

This is the segment of society that naturally craves child care aid in their lives, and they make it an inevitable part of services required in present India.
