Standards for play schools

There is a need to have safety and food standards for play schools in India.

There are play schools in NCR charging 200000 per year for children but have no standards. Recently a friends daughter fell from the stairs at her play school leading to 3 stitches. There were 4 teachers, 4 maids and about 30 kids.

I understand that in rural India or poor urban localities the same standards cant be there. In that case bis must come up with a term “playschool” or alike and have mandatory standards for them.

Cant not take action. more

Regarding the location such rooms for the tiny-tots within a building, the Part 4 ‘Fire and Life Safety’ of the National Building Code of India 2016 (NBC 2016) does contain certain provisions as below:

Rooms or areas for use by the preschool, kindergarten, Class/Grade 1 students shall be located on ground floor/level of exit discharge. Rooms or areas occupied by Class/Grade II
students shall be located not above one floor higher than ground floor/level of exit discharge.

The Code is although voluntary in nature, its enforcement depends on adoption by concerned parties or stipulation in a contract or by appropriate adoption by the concerned authorities. You may be aware that the regulation of land development and building construction is a State subject and is dealt by the States through appropriate Acts/Rules/Regulation and by state/local bodies such as urban local bodies within their jurisdiction through building regulatory documents like building byelaws/fire regulation. more  
In Delhi, if u talk about play schools big brands, they have set standards for almost everything but i do understand and agree that everyone can’t afford to send their kids to those schools and other play schools don’t have any set standards and must be taken care by some govt body SERIOUSLY. more  
Our rural areas as also poor urban areas even do not have standard high schools whereas, you are talking about having of Play Schools charging annual fee of Rs.2 lac in those areas! more  
Private educational institutions along with the play schools should come under regulation, as the management of such institutions are exploiting the public. more  
Parents should consider private ayah cum maid on individual basis or form a group of 3~4 families (children) under one ayah in one of their own homes. This may be cheaper and a more reliable solution. With both the parents working this is becoming a big business opportunity for some. Since their outlook is profit, all other factors like safety, hygiene, open space will take a back seat. more
