Thottathil Raveendran, MLA, on Thursday opened a creche for children of government staff at the Kozhikode Collectorate.
The facility has been set up on the first floor of the ‘B’ block. Children in the age group between six months and six years will be admitted to the creche. This is part of the State government’s efforts to have childcare centres at workplaces. They come under the Department of Women and Child Development.
The creche will be open between 9.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. A social worker and a helper have been assigned to take care of the children. It will remain closed on public holidays and Sundays. The creche is equipped with a refrigerator, washing machine, gas stove, child-friendly furniture, cradles, bed, toys, and a breastfeeding space.
