Child Education And Development

In India, the number of children aged six or younger is approximately 160 million, which exceeds the entire population of Japan. It is said that one in every five children in the world is Indian; however, the actual status of early childhood care and education (ECCE) for children in the above age group is almost unknown.

The demand for ECCE is increasing and diversifying in India due to reduced child mortality and maternal mortality, both of which were once very high in the country, as well as increased investment in education along with improved family income, and emerging trends of nuclear and double-income families. Along with the current political movement for children’s rights, NHRWCDC is now working to establish a sufficient regulatory system to ensure ECCE quality so as to provide appropriate standards of ECCE to all children.

Objectives of NHRWCDC
