Gov. Sol integrates day care centers into mainstream schools
SURIGAO CITY-- Governor Sol Forcadilla-Matugas on Wednesday announced the integration of day care centers into the mainstream elementary schools in the province.
Matugas made the announcement during a medical mission sponsored by the provincial government in Barangay Rizal attended by local officials and school teachers of B. Vasquez Central Elementary School wherein she committed to put up a pre-school day care center worth P400,000 for the said school.
“Integrating preschoolers into the mainstream elementary schools would result to accelerated development of their social skills, particularly peer interactions and basic self-care tasks such as grooming, feeding and the like. It would also hasten their learning skills considering DepEd could supply them with the latest learning materials and technology,” Matugas stressed.
“The classroom will be constructed inside the school’s premises and will be available before the opening of classes in June."
School Principal Eda Equibal-Ensomo thanked the governor for choosing her school as a pilot project of the latter’s education program.
Matugas said more preschool classrooms will be constructed within this year as part of their innovations to improve the quality of education in the province. (FEA/EL-PIA Surigao del Norte)
