Quezon City receives award for early childhood care program
The Quezon City government has received commendation for its effective and timely Early Childhood Care and Development programs.
The city government was one of the awardees during the 1st Gawad Edukampyon Awards held Friday.
Social Services Development Department chief Fe Macale received the award on behalf of the city government.
Quezon City was recognized for its efforts to ensure that children as young as three and four years old continued to be educated amid the pandemic.
“Katuwang ang mga child development worker at magulang, tinitiyak ng lungsod na ang bawat naka-enroll sa day care ay nakakatanggap ng picture books upang malinang ang galing ng bata sa pagbabasa,” the city government said on Facebook.
The children’s learning continued through online activities, it said.
It also made sure that the children were healthy by conducting regular consultations and check ups, and by providing them with nutritious food through the community feeding program.
