toddlers in Arumbuhalnagar for the kids of working mothers and the key components of early group experience are group size; quality of the physical environment; primary care giving assignments; continuity of care; cultural and familial continuity; and meeting the needs of the individual and components of group care are addressed and it determines, to a large extent, the opportunities for responsive care giving and caring relationships in infant/toddler child care. In view of the the need to supplement household income, more and more women require day care services for their children so that they can get involved in their livelihood earning programs SEVAI Crèche Scheme for the children of working mothers of the Ministry of Women and Child Development aims to provide day care services for children in the age group of 0-3 years, belonging to economically weaker sections of society. The nominal participation with the community for increasing the centers’ resources is utilized for better facilities at the crèche. In the day-to-day give and take of good infant/ toddler child care, children and their caregivers relate in a way that looks much like a dance, with the child leading, the caregiver picking up the rhythm and following. When a caregiver reads and responds to the young child's messages with sensitivity, the child's hunger to be understood is satisfied.

The physical environment indoors and out promotes or impede intimate, satisfying relationships. The environment affects caregiver/infant relationships. A comfortable place for adults within the children's environment encourages parents to visit throughout the day and can also be used to encourage continued feeding with infants. A place for parents to sit comfortably for a moment at the end of the day acknowledges the parent's needs and encourages conversation. The assignment of a primary caregiver to every child in group care means that when a child moves into care, the child's parents know, the director of the program knows, and the caregiver knows who the person is who is principally responsible for that child. After his mother kissed him, Tim waved good-bye and then he said, "Hi" again to Mindy, who Tim is learning a lot in this center, mostly very good things. He feels important. He feels heard. The child has to build trust all over again. When a very young child loses a caregiver, he really loses part of his sense of himself and the way the world operates: The better somebody knows a child, the more subtle the cues are that will inform that person of what it is that the child needs. Continuity of care is important for caregivers and parents as well as for children. Each infant is on his or her own schedule for feeding, diapering, sleeping, and playing. This schedule is documented for the family on an individual daily schedule form.Infants begin to exhibit the need for more stimulation. Child care should be in harmony with what goes on at home, following the form and style of what is familiar to the child.Self-reflection is key to culturally sensitive care, and caregivers should be schooled in it. It is essential to recognize these values and understand that they are being transmitted to the children.
