Improving Parenting Service In India
Ethnographic Research on Indian Parents.
Our client for this project was a Gurugram based early-stage startup focused on providing parenting services. Their target customers were the parents of children aged 1 to 5 years old. They wanted to have user research with Indian parents to have a better understanding of their target customers.
The focus of the study was on understanding the interaction between parents of children aged 1 to 5 years old and daycare centres in India. The goals were to find out parents’ awareness levels about child development issues, what is their journey of searching for a daycare centre for their children.
A team of experienced UX researchers carried out ethnographic research targeting parents living in Delhi-NCR region.
The project organisation involved recruiting participants who were parents of children aged 1 to 5 years old.
The team visited the homes of the parents and observed their daily routine and their interaction with their children. To meet the study goals, the team asked a set of questions and then they observed the interaction between parents and children in their home environment.
For this study, we used our standard methodology of ethnographic research. The team took photos and audio recordings from the study and included them with the final report.
