Creche services for children with special needs: AIIMS

AIIMS to launch creche service for children with special needs; a step towards supporting employees and promoting inclusivity.


The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is set to provide a creche service for children with special needs, in response to the concerns raised by its employees and staff. The Director, Prof M Srinivas, issued an office memorandum announcing that two C-1 houses will be allocated to develop the creche/day care facility for these children at the institute.

The creche service will be led by Prof Shefali Gulati, from the child neurology division, department of paediatrics, who has been appointed to oversee the development of the service for children with special needs. Officials from AIIMS reported that a creche for staff children was previously operational in the institute ten years ago, but it was closed down due to construction work for a private ward. This time, however, the creche will be specifically designed for “special kids.”

The decision to establish this service is a testament to AIIMS’ commitment to providing support and care for its entire staff and their families. This initiative will benefit parents who have children with special needs, by providing a reliable day care facility for them. This move is also a step towards promoting inclusivity and diversity in the workplace, as it provides a platform for children with special needs to thrive and participate in society. Overall, the introduction of this creche service highlights AIIMS’ dedication to enhancing the well-being of its staff and the wider community.
