Child Care

Introduction of the Sector

Child care is a broad area that covers a wide spectrum of professionals, institutions, contexts, activities, social, and cultural conventions. The sector covers two componenets early child development and child protection.

Programme Introduction

‘Children’ and ‘childhood are perceived differently in various cultures and periods of time. This leads to power dynamics in relationships between an adult and a child. At each stage of growth, a child has different needs for which he/she may be dependent on adults. However, in many cases, these needs are not met due to a range of factors like rural-urban and class-caste divides, poverty and income insecurity, socio-economic and geo- political circumstances, or discriminatory attitude leading to deprivation or abuse. This necessitates an understanding of child vulnerability and child protection.

Violence, abuse, and exploitation of children are widespread and remain a harsh reality for millions of children from all socio-economic groups in India. These have long-lasting consequences on children’s lives. Child Protection requires working with families and community resources to ensure children are safe through sensitive child-friendly initiatives to effectively deliver services, mobilize an inter-sectoral response and engage in designing, implementing as well as strengthening Child Protection Systems in India.

Eligibility for Admission

The eligibility for admission to Bachelors in Child Protection shall be 10+2 or equivalent, in any stream.
