One of the major problems faced by working women is the care of their  children while they are at work. With the objective of providing a clean, comfortable environment and good care of their children, IWSA started its Day Care Center in 1988. The Day Care Center is named after 'G. M. ABHYANKER'.

This facility caters to children from six months to eight years, from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm, thus helping working mothers. Recently the age limit is extended to 13 years, only for girls.  The children are looked after by well-trained supervisors and maids under the guidance of IWSA members of the DCC Committee.  Besides the love and care showered on the kids, there is an annual dental and health check-up, celebration of different Indian customs and festivals, training in arts, crafts and reading/writing, annual picnic/field visits and regular meeting with parents. For more information contact In-charge Day Care Centre; 2 pm to 5 pm or contact on 022-2 7899705.
