ITANAGAR: To cater to the needs of working mothers at the Civil Secretariat here, the Arunachal Pradesh government has established a crèche with all facilities to accommodate children on all working days.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu inaugurated the crèche on Thursday, which was established by the Women and Child Development department with a capacity to accommodate around 15 children at a time.

The crèche will run from 9: 30 am to 4 pm on all working days for children between six months to five years whose parents work at the civil secretariat, official sources informed here.

Anganwadi staff would be deployed in the crèche to take care of the children.

The crèche has all the facilities required by children including sleeping beds, reading and colouring books, leisure and cognitive skill toys and a play zone, said the sources.

The details of parents along with medical history of child would be noted when a child is admitted in the crèche.

With this facility in the Secretariat, the women employees would be at ease to concentrate more on their work as their children are in a safe and joyful atmosphere. Establishment of the facility would go a long way in meeting the long felt needs of the working mothers of the secretariat, added the sources.

Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar and several other officers were present on the occasion.

"Good news for working mother! We now have Creche facilities for employees of Arunachal Pradesh Civil Secretariat. I congratulate WCD Arunachal for the noble step! " said Khandu in his official twitter handle.
