The Regional Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Monitoring Team conducted an ECCD Program Implementation Review in Olongapo City recently.

The monitoring team is headed by Social Worker Head Tam Lirio of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) together with ECCD Regional Director Marites Chaves and Remy Valeria of the Commission on Human Rights.

The review aims to evaluate and asses the ECCD Program Implementation of Olongapo City which is one of the pilot areas of the said program.

Three barangays were visited and identified as the pilot areas – Sta. Rita, New Cabalan and Gordon Heights. An interview with the Barangay Officials and other service providers such as barangay health and day care workers were conducted for the improvement and repainting of said health and day care centers.

Revitalization and developments in the identified barangays are set to take off this summer through the efforts of City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. and the members of the Sangguniang Panlunsod and the guidance and monitoring of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) Head Gene Eclarino.

Gordon said that aside from the infrastructure development, capability building and enhancement activities are also conducted for service providers.

A refresher course on the implementing ECCD Curriculum is scheduled on April 13-30, 2009 where 55 day care workers will undergo the said course to make them more aware of handling and nurturing children in the development of their well-being.

In addition, it will help them ensure that the physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs of every child will be met, thus, making the delivery of the Day Care Service Program in the city of high quality and standards.

“In order to sustain the program, I am urging the public to support and actively participate, particularly from the barangay officials, for the welfare of the children in the community,” said Gordon.

The ECCD program, which covers children zero to six years old, focuses on health and nutrition, early childhood or pre-school education and other issues affecting children.
