Makati Mayor Abby Binay announced that the city government has started the distribution of Pre-Kindergarten learner’s package on Monday to some 1,087 enrolees aged four in the city’s Pre-Kindergarten education program.

The mayor said the initiative is part of the city’s thrust to ensure continuous education for the youth despite the pandemic, largely through strategic partnerships with the Schools Division Office of Makati (SDO-Makati) under the Department of Education.

“Our commitment to quality education encompasses preschool-aged Makatizens, given that they are at the crucial stage when they start to develop cognitive skills. Together with SDO-Makati, we have put together a learner’s package that contains tools that will stimulate their creativity and imagination, and help them learn new things and activities,” Mayor Abby said. 

The mayor said each package contains different learning materials to aid in the growth and development of the recipients. These include an alphabet puzzle set, alphabet flash cards, Math/Numbers flash cards, wooden magnetic drawing board, abacus, plastic building blocks toys, big crayons, clay, glue, popsicle sticks, scissors, construction papers, plastic ball, and jumping rope for kids. Each customized pre-K transparent bag also contains a hygiene kit with soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and face towel. 

The program, which will run for five months under the supervision of 10 teachers, will utilize the 

Localized and Enhanced Pre-K Curriculum aligned with the standards of the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD).

The mayor also urged parents of pre-K Makatizens to support the program by being actively involved in their children’s early education.

“We hope that parents of these 1,087 youngsters enrolled in our pre-K program will devote enough time and attention to engage them in daily learning exercises using the tools we have provided. Making it a part of their daily routine will go a long way in preparing them for formal education,” Mayor Abby said.

To claim their child’s learner’s package, parents and guardians only need to bring their valid ID to the DyipNi Maki site of the barangay where the school is located from December 7 to December 11, 2020, from 9am to 3:30pm. In case they are not available to claim the package, they can authorize anyone to claim it as long as they present an authorization letter, photocopy of the valid ID of the parent or guardian, and a photocopy of the claimant’s valid ID.
