Our vision is for all children to have a nurturing and happy childhood and our mission is to promote child-friendly sites; where every child living on a construction site is safe, healthy and educated, and able to enjoy their childhood.
Our founder Mrs. Meera Mahadevan set up the first Mobile Creches in 1969 as a spontaneous response to the neglected children she saw on the site of Gandhi Centenary Exhibition, in Delhi. From that rudimentary shelter, the journey began towards gaining entry into other construction sites and ensuring basic minimum care for the children of the vast migrant labour force belonging to the poorest strata of the society. In 1972, a branch was set up in Mumbai called Mobile Creches, Mumbai. From the 1st April, 2007, we began separate operations as Mumbai Mobile Creches. This was for administrative simplicity.
Mrs. Mrinalini Kochar, President, was a High School teacher for over twenty five years, mostly at the Cathedral & John Connon School, Mumbai. After retiring from there, she joined the Mumbai branch of Mobile Creches, (now Mumbai Mobile Creches) where she has now been for over twenty years.

 An inspiration to her peers
Sunita (name changed to protect the identity of the individual) was in her tenth standard in school when she heard about an MMC daycare centre being opened in her locality. Once she completed Grade 10, she enrolled herself with the MMC teacher-training programme. She was the third generation of a family living inside the construction site. She, however, wanted more from life and played a major role in her family deciding to shift out of a site. Sunita has set an example for many young girls who are eager to experience life outside the construction site. Through the training, she gained immense knowledge on child development and growth. The training also gave her the exposure to learn about the work of other organisations. After completing her training she began working at an MMC centre as a pre-school teacher. Overcoming many challenges in her journey of six years with MMC, 25-year old Sunita has successfully displayed her potential in managing a class full of students, along with taking other responsibilities like handling the library programme in the different centres she was assigned to. After completing 6 years as a teacher at MMC, currently she is a junior trainer in the Bal Palika Teacher Training Course conducted by MMC.
