THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO DAYCARE IN KAGGADASAPURA
Indian statistics say that parents who have to work double shifts, hold two jobs and single parents are increasing exponentially in the Western world. For these parents their options involving childcare can be summarized as 3:
- The parent, or generally has a flexible schedule.
- It is necessary to invite a family member, such as a grandparent, to stay at home until the child becomes independent.
- Enrol the child in child care.
In Kaggadasapura, Bangalore the option that has benefited both parents and children is the third. Daycare in Kaggadasapura has gained a lot of prominence in the lives of the residents and have enabled thousands of them to go to their jobs with confidence that their children are well cared for and looked after in the daycare centers.
Here are some important facts you should know about DayCare in Kaggadasapura, starting with its concept.
What Is A Daycare Center?
A daycare center is a place where teachers and assistants are dedicated to taking care of children of parents who cannot be in care due to work or lack of time. A daycare center is characterized by some essential characteristics:
- They receive children from before their first year up to 6 years of age, although some UKG and other family institutions extend up to 12 years of age.
- They have flexible schedules of between 4 and 8 hours, and 6 days a week.
- The working staff, teachers, and assistants, are usually women. In fact, in some countries, men are not allowed to educate babies in daycare or preschools.
- The size of the children’s groups ranges from 20 to 40 children of different ages.
- Some playschools or daycare centers have models by time (hours, days, months, or years), others by child or activity.
- They may be for-profit or non-profit, owned or in partnership with other organizations.
- They offer facilities such as a park or playground, sleeping area, kitchen, etc.
Many people today tend to think that preschool, daycare, playschool, or boarding school mean the same thing, and although they all refer to the same purpose; to care for and educate children, we may interpret each term differently:
Preschool is defined as all education and care services that a child has before reaching age 6 or before entering the first grade of school.
A playschool is characterized by being a place that is based on the care of children from 1 to 3 years of age, encouraging them to develop social skills and recreation during games. In Kaggadasapura, these places are governed by pedagogies such as Waldorf, Montessori, or PlayWay.
Boarding schools are organizations that focus on full-time education and care of children. They work with children 6 years of age and older.
Types of Daycare Centers
They are organizations managed mostly as branches. They have the same administration, policies, and rules at each location. Each teacher or supervisor is assigned to the appropriate children and has caregivers to assist them.
Independent Child Care Centers
This type of DAYCARE in Kaggadasapura is administered by one or several people. There are usually no branch offices and they are always kept in one place. They also have teachers and caregivers who take care of the children, but the number of children is measured by the space available.
In Kaggadasapura, as in the rest of India, it is common to find this type of nursery. The idea is that the teachers or caregivers take care of the children from their own homes. Generally, there are two people who take care of the babies, but if necessary they use an assistant.
Daycare Centers near The School
These facilities are seen in many schools, which establish daycare or playschools next to their school or even within the same space. Qualified childcare teachers interact with them.
Many organizations in India have decided to establish childcare facilities within their own facilities. This allows the parents who work there to take their baby to work and leave it in the daycare until their shift is over.
Alternatives to Daycare
Many parents are not fascinated by the idea of having to leave their children in a nursery for so many years. After all, a parent’s role is fundamental in every stage of a baby’s growth, but for reasons of work or need, many are forced to enrol their children in from a very young age. However, there are other options besides the nursery that can help you with the care of your little one.
There are people, women, or girls who offer to take care of children for a season or even for several years. There are nannies who take care of the children in your own home, just like the daycare centers at home, but there are also nannies that you could have in your home and live there. A babysitter takes full responsibility for the child’s physical well-being and can also help with household chores. However, they are unlikely to provide professional education for the child, and when they have to stay at home they often add more expenses to the home by providing room and board.
The family can always look for a person who is willing to care for the child at home during the parents’ workdays. Many grandparents or other relatives are often available to take care of the children while the parents are away. This option tends to be one of the least expensive and also helps children get to know the rest of their families better.
The decision to put your child in a nursery is always up to you, you are not obligated to do so. However, we recommend that you always evaluate all the options available to you. This will allow you to make a decision that benefits everyone and that is in the best interest of your child, which is the most important thing. Think of child care as a sharing of responsibility, not as abandonment.
