MANKAYAN, Benguet – The municipal government allowed the establishment of an office for the different daycare workers in the municipal library to be a centralized depository area for their records, among other purposes.
Mayor Frenzel A. Ayong said that the office for the town’s daycare workers is a recognition of their important role in the molding of their pupils as responsible citizens of their communities despite their limited compensation for the enormous services they provide to ensure the proper development of young people.
“We admire our day care workers for their commitment and dedication in providing the needs of their pupils enrolled in the different day care centers in the municipality. Their office in the municipal library will be their meeting place where they could hold their regular bonding activities and keep their records so that parents needing such records of their children will have easy access to the same,” Mayor Ayong stressed.
Currently, there are some 58 day care centers or child-minding centers located in the town’s 12 barangays that cater to the pre-basic education needs of the children who are qualified to be enrolled in the said educational facilities jointly operated by the municipal and barangay governments.
When Mayor Ayong assumed as the municipal mayor, he also initiated the establishment of the desk of pocket miners in recognition of their role in the sustainable development of this mining and agricultural municipality.
According to him, the municipal government is cognizant on the contributions of the different sectors to the present state of the municipality as one of the first-class municipalities in the province, thus he is working out the provision of sufficient government assistance to advance the advocacies of the aforesaid sectors and to further help elevate the status of the municipality as valuing participatory governance.
He stated the municipal government is trying to maximize the limited spaces in the different offices for the put up of desks of the concerned sectors for them to establish an appropriate system of recording and depositing their records for future references and for easier access by the public.
Ayong expressed his gratitude to the barangay day care workers for their passion and dedication to continue providing quality time for their students to pursue their studies amidst the implementation of modified learning schemes using modules distributed to daycare pupils who will be assisted by their parents in their home studies.
He recognized that day care workers are burdened with numerous activities for the present modified learning scheme as they have to go around the houses of the pupils that are enrolled just to distribute and retrieve the modules and for them to provide limited face-to-face learning. By HENT
