After the successful launch of the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Program of the local government led by Mayor James ‘’Bong’’ Gordon, Jr. last May, the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), as the lead agency, started implementing the Work and Financial Plan of the program.

In-line with this, CSWDO under the leadership of Gene Eclarino spearheaded the ‘’Team Effectiveness Workshop’’ for the City and Barangay ECCD Committee Officers and Members on June 18-20 in Baguio City.

The two (2) day capability building and training seminars aim to make the participants further understand the concept of the ECCD program. ‘’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,’’ said the CSWDO head.

There were over thirty-five (35) participants in the training including three (3) barangay captains, Barangay Council for the Protection of Children (BCPC) officers and Health Center doctors of Sta. Rita, Gordon Heights at New Cabalan, which are the first target areas of the program.

To build a stronger direction, the mission and vision for the first five (5) years of the implementation of the program in Olongapo was agreed upon during the training. Olongapo is 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).

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) year old.

“Mahalagang mahubog nang mabuti ang mga bata mula sa pinaka kritikal na bahagi ng kanilang paglaki na nagsisimula sa pagkabuo nito sa sinapupunan ng ina hanggang sa anim (6) na taong gulang na ito,” stated Mayor Bong Gordon who is also the chairman of the Local Council for the Welfare of Children.

The program, initiated by the Mayor Gordon, was approved with a fund provided for ECCD for three years.
