The government of India has announced that the play schools are totally illegal and there is no agency to keep check over the quality of education they are imparting besides the safety norms for toddlers adopted by them
The new trend of alluring parents of small toddlers by opening unregistered play way schools in every street and village has now gone as the government has put a full stop on the rapidly mushrooming of play way schools by declaring them as illegal institutions running without any registration due to absence of any law for the same.
In this regard government has initiated the process of formulating national guidelines for their registration with special focus on safety of toddlers and quality of education. Giving the responsibility of formulating the said guidelines to National Commission for Protection of Child Right (NCPCR) the government of India has said that the play schools running in every nook and corner are totally illegal and there is no agency to keep check over the quality of education they are imparting besides the safety norms for toddlers adopted by them.
The order has come after the objections over the opening and running of play way schools were filed by NCPCR to Ministry of Women and Child Development considering which the ministry ordered the NCPCR to formulate national guidelines for the play way school after which it will become mandatory for the play way to get themselves registered after fulfilling the guidelines.
According to the reports the guidelines will be formulated on the basis of age group of children’s under the ‘Creche’ category and those schools who will found unfit will be closed. Pertinent to mention here that in Jammu also there are several play way schools functioning in a single room with partitions. All these schools are also illegal as they are unregistered and even don’t have minimum required facilities including space, assets etc.
Now after the implementation of national guidelines most of the play way schools functioning in Jammu will have to close as many of them are running in rented rooms that too with zero focus on quality of education and no safety measures.
Even several government schools in Jammu division have also commenced play way classes in the recent past for reviving their admissions but unfortunately due to scarcity of funds they too failed in providing proper facilities and are running woefully which could also be closed after the implementation of guidelines.
