MANILA, Dec. 31 – The Valenzuela City government said it has constructed P7.7 million worth of new day care centers to cater to the needs of its marginalized residents through the City Social Welfare and Development Office.

Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian disclosed that these centers are located in Tangke Kanan in Barangay Malinta; Balubaran II in Barangay Malinta; Northville II-B in Barangay Punturin; Bagbaguin II in Barangay Bagbaguin; Annville Subdivision, Sto. Rosario in Barangay Maysan; Dimetria St., Purok 4 II in Barangay Mapulang Lupa; and Arkong Bato Day Care Center in Barangay Arkong Bato.

Gatchalian said that four other centers, costing around P1.8 million each, are currently under construction at Sitio Kabatuhan Day Care Center in Barangay Gen. T. de Leon; Phase 5 Day Care Center in Barangay Punturin and Morning Ville Day Care Center in Barangay Canumay.

The city has 72 existing day care centers scattered in different barangays that provide early education for more than 8,000 Valenzuelano children.

“Putting up new [day care] centers will help eliminate the problem in lack of school facilities and will help in giving quality education with the increasing number of students each year,” Gatchalian added.

The new day care centers will hold four classes daily. Each can accommodate up to 30 pupils 2-4 years old. (PNA) scs/PFN
