How it began at Mumbai Mobile Creches

Mobile Crèches was founded by Meera Mahadevan in 1969 in Delhi on the belief that every child has the fundamental right to security, education, health care and protection.

A housewife at the time, she was passing a construction site when she was struck by the sight of a baby lying unattended and exposed to the harsh heat. The next day, she set up a tent, hired some help and started the first Mobile Crèche. This initiated a social movement whose guiding principle was – Early Childhood Matters.

Since then, Mobile Crèches has developed a comprehensive day care service programme that meets children´s emotional, physical, cognitive and social development needs, and has pioneered the first Early Child Care Education (ECCE) programme for migrant workers´ children in this country.
