Crèche and pre-school programmes
When it comes to a child’s development, the first few years of life are critical. It is during these years that the intergenerational cycle of poor education may be broken for the children of disadvantaged families. CORP provides parents with a ray of hope for their children’s futures through its 20 crèche and preschool programmes, which are located in some of the most poverty-stricken areas of Mumbai. More than 1,400 young children of working mothers are currently enrolled in our day centres, where they are provided with a foundational education to prepare them for their formal schooling. These children, who are between the ages of 8 months and 5 years, are provided with nutritious meals, access to basic healthcare, and education in cleanliness and hygiene. Perhaps most importantly, they are provided a safe and caring environment during the day, allowing their parents to go to work to support the family.
