Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) supports children’s survival, growth, development and learning including health, nutrition and hygiene, along with cognitive, social, physical and emotional development from birth to entry into primary school in formal, informal and settings. Parent involvement has been the topic of study for many researchers in the field of education. However, the more it is studied, the more it seems further research needs to be conducted. This paradox seems to exist due to the many different existing about parental involvement. Parent and community relationships have been inconsistently measured across various studies and research, thus not capturing a full perspective and picture of these relationships. New ways need to be utilized in order to better understand the relationships existing between families and schools. The significance in this study lied in its study of the perceptions of those chiefly involved in the education of children: parents and teachers. This study also provided an alternative view to an issue that has mostly been studied in purely qualitative manners such as field interviews and focus groups. The present study was conducted in anganwadies centres of Nizamabad and Kamareddy districts of Telangana state. The result reveals that there were significant differences in the health and nutrition practices followed in anganwadies among tribal children during early childhood.
