46 Dagupan day care centers get educational materials from Rep. De Venecia

DAGUPAN — The city's 46 day care centers received educational aids from Rep. Christopher De Venecia of the 4th District of Pangasinan in a ceremony on Tuesday at the Senior Citizen's Recreational Center.
Mayor Belen T. Fernandez along with Councilor Marvin Fabia, Barangay Pantal Punong Barangay Julie F. Perez and De Venecia's chief executive officer, lawyer Gerald Tabadero, witnessed the turnover.
The donations include chairs, tables, first aid kit, various educational materials and visual aids to be used by Child Development Center workers.
"This is the first batch of what we have committed to our Child Development Workers in one of our consultations with them in partnership with our good mayor Belen Fernandez so we could advance the educational progress of our children especially in their preparatory stage," said De Venecia when he turned over these materials.
De Venecia asked each of the city's Child Development workers to do their share of educating the children well even as he stressed that it is the collective obligation of everyone to prepare their students before they enter the K to 12 program in the educational ladder.
On the other hand, Mayor Fernandez said the educational materials was the result of a good partnership and working relationship between the city government and the congressman.
She expressed hope that these educational aids will help the city's Day Care Centers boost their chance to be accredited by the Department of Social Welfare and Development Office.
The first batch of day care centers already successfully hurdled the approval of the DSWD in Region 1 while the second batch still have to undergo evaluation.
De Venecia said the fund used for the purchase of the educational aids was generated by the fund raising drive launched by De Venecia through the theater play "Buwan at Baril" which he directed.
De Venecia was a former child actor and theater director. (PNA)
