Mobile Creches and Taylor and Francis Group invite you to join us for the launch of the
State of the Young Child In India
Friday 4th September, 4:25 pm to 6:00 pm.
The State of the Young Child in India report is prepared with the aim to bring the young child at the center of policy dialogue, borne out of the conviction that each child has an inalienable right to opportunities to develop her full potential. With a focus on children aged under 6years, it presents key aspects of their wellbeing and development. The report draws from specially commissioned technical background papers and is supplemented by extensive field experience of Mobile Creches in childcare. It provides essential insights into the approaches, policy constraints, measurement metrics, legislation, programmatic interventions, and investment of human, technical, and financial resources, whilst identifying chronic obstacles hampering the complete development of the potential that lies in India’s children.
The report will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers and influencers, think tanks and researchers of public policy, development studies, human rights, sociology and social anthropology, as well as general readers.
The report draws upon the varied and in-depth experience of domain experts who authored specially commissioned technical papers to provide the substantial scientific underpinning to the chapters of this report. You can access these independent papers here:

In its current strategic curve, Mobile Creches is trying to harness the knowledge on issues relating to the young child. As MC turns 51, the experience gained from the five decades of engagement with parent communities, frontline workers, businesses, practitioners, advocates, programme implementers and policy makers has taken the form of a Report on the State of the Young Child in India: the first step by MC towards emerging as a knowledge creator for this important but voiceless population.
This series of five Policy Briefs, drawn from the State of the Young Child in India, aims to highlight the major issues that can be translated into actionable policies.
Policy Brief 1 : Making ECCE a Justiciable Right: Extend RTE to children under six years
Policy Brief 2 : Ensuring respect and recognition where due: Professionalise the childcare workforce
Policy Brief 3 : Extending Early Childhood Services: From Anganwadis to Anganwadis-cum-Creches
