India houses nearly 20% of the world's child population. The most crucial years of child growth and development are from 0 to 6 years of life. Of the 377 million urban Indians, close to 10% (36.5 million) are children below six years and Mumbai's child population below 6 years is around
1.8 million. Any instance of delay or miss in certain signs of development that are to be seen at particular time period during growth needs to be addressed. A Child Development Centre can provide support, treatment and rehabilitation in such cases.
