To further enhance the working relationship of the members of the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Coordinating Council, a team building seminar was conducted on June 3-5, 2009 at Baguio City.

The three (3) day team building activity was aimed to establish camaraderie among the ECCD Coordinating Council members, especially those who are new to the program.

The City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), as the lead agency, is incessantly implementing the Work and Financial Plan of the ECCD.

According to CSWDO Head Gene Eclarino, “The activity also aims to build a strong and effective team among service providers and ECCD Committees and to be able to enhance their capability in the implementation of the ECCD Programs and services.”

The thirty-five (35) participants included the different city government offices which are members of the said council, including the three (3) barangay captains and councilors of the pilot areas namely Sta. Rita, Gordon Heights and New Cabalan.

Olongapo was one of the beneficiaries of the ECCD expansion program of the Council for the Welfare of Children and the Regional Sub Committee for the Welfare of Children (RSCWC) which is now in its second year of implementation.

The ECCD Program covers the health care needs, nutrition, education and other social services including the care and promotion of rights, needs and protection of children from zero (0) to six (6) years old.

As Chair of the Local Council for the Welfare of Children, Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. supports all efforts to protect the women and children of the city. “It is important to form the mind and body of children the earliest time possible which means starting from its conception in the womb until six years of age which are critical formative years.”
