Benguet State University-Buguias Campus recently launched its child minding center.
The center is in the context of Executive Order 340, which mandates national government agencies and government-owned and controlled corporations to provide day care services for their employees’ children under five years old.
BSU President Felipe Saliang Comila led the ribbon cutting with Buguias Mayor Ruben Tindaan and BSU-Buguias Executive Dean Florendo P. Comila.
The child minding center is intended for faculty, staff members and students who have toddlers and have to bring them to school in the absence of a house help.
Ana Cris Gabol, BSU Buguias associate dean, said there are students pursuing their studies who have to bring their children to school and the center will enable these mothers to focus on their studies.
The launching is in time for the limited face to face classes.
Tindaan handed to the Campus’ Administration a certification that the local government of Buguias does not object and supports the request of BSU for the conduct of limited face to face classes.
The certification was presented together with the Safety Seal before campus faculty and staff members and Comila.
Comila said BSU Bokod-Campus will launch its center on April 11. La Trinidad Campus has already one at the College of Agriculture. – Grace T. Bengwayan
