The Nationâ€™s development depends on the development of children. Child must be encouraged to live in a family environment which gives an atmosphere of happiness, understanding, love, affection and emotional support for development of childâ€™s personality. The growth, development and personality of children is depended on the environment where the children grown up. Children are being institutionalized with various reasons such as destitution due to death of parents, poverty, inability of parents, unconducive family environment and health issues. As the children are living in the institutions away from their parents, it effects on physical, psychological and emotional development of children. The Government mandated child care institutions to maintain the minimum standards for providing effective rehabilitation services for children in need of care and protection. The child care institutions were managed by Government and Non-Government Organisations. Many studies have been conducted to see the services provided by child care institutions really meeting the needs of the children for their development to attain their goals and mainstreaming in the society.
