Anganwadi needs to be separated from kindergarten

Anganwadi functions in multiple ways.

See for example

  • supplementary nutrition
  • immunization
  • health check-up,
  • referral services,
  • pre-school non-formal education and
  • nutrition & health education.

Anganwadi also provides care to pregnant & lactating mothers, as well as to other vulnerable populations.

In all Anganwadi is not just a kindergarten.

It is a social facility in some ways.

It is important to tag Anganwadis in a way that allows us to recognize this cornerstone of Indian public health system as a separate and unique institution.

Suggestion by Kathmandu makes sense, as Anganwadi is not just childcare, but also serves mothers as well as elders now.


would help to differentiate anganwadis well --Muzirian (talk) 07:10, 6 March 2022 (UTC)
