The crèche came into existence, very naturally with a few little ones, whose mothers had to go to work (as house-maids, for road building, to construction sites, etc). Gradually more children joined and the crèche was named Joy Nivas (house of joy). Today (in 2015) there are more than 50 tiny tots, but preference is given to girls again, grouped in three batches (according to age).
They come at 8.30 in the morning to play, learn alphabet, numbers and nursery rhymes. Then they have a mid-morning snack, listen to stories, do clay modeling, collage, drawing etc. and go back home at 12.30.
