Tacurong gears up for National Children’s Month amidst pandemic

With the serious threat of COVID-19 to the susceptible younger population, the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) of LGU Tacurong welcomes the National Children’s Month in a safer, new normal celebration to reduce the risk of the virus while commemorating the event.

The National Children’s Month seeks to deliver programs that attend to the needs and development of children in the country.

In the city, the CSWDO remains steadfast in the implementation of the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) program to children aged three years old to four despite the pandemic.

Fifty-three daycare centers from the twenty barangays of Tacurong are in-charge with the distribution of educational materials and the orientation of the parents on the conduct of learning sessions to their children at home.

Also, the Department of Education (DepEd) pledged to print out and distribute Panatang Makabata – a pledge recitation on rights and duties of children – to schools and barangays within the city. 

As the National Children’s Month is a month-long celebration this November, the CSWDO along with its committee ditched the face-to-face activities and prepared various virtual events instead.

On November 20, City Mayor Angelo O. Montilla is set to give his State of the Children’s Report through a livestreaming event on Facebook to publicize the data of children aided by the Local Government of Tacurong and its partner stakeholders. 

The CSWDO does not only focus on the mental development of the children but also ensures their physical growth through a Supplemental Feeding Program in selected areas in Tacurong. 

CSWDO also eyes to implement the Comprehensive Local Juvenile Intervention Program (CLJIP) to address Children in Conflict with the Law in the city.(DEC,LGUTac-Information)
