RECEPTION HOME FOR TODDLERS

Reception home for toddlers started on 16th May 2016 for the kids under five years (0 to 5 years) need care and protection. Children not having parent, single parent, victims of beggary and street dwellers are coming to toddlers’ home for better care and rehabilitation.

It may take children some time to sort out their place amongst the others. Children, who have problematic relationships at home, for whatever reason, may not start out feeling confident. However, children who have felt highly competitive at their home may find life easier here amongst a mixed group of children and be able to create better relationships.

Groups and ‘best friendships’ usually emerge during the first year although they may not survive for a very long time. The ups and downs of friendships may be painful for children, but most of them establish ways of relating to one another in a more or less harmonious way. These are amongst the most powerful experiences of childhood, outside the home.
