Honeylet and Du30 Cabinet Spouses call for more child-minding centers in the country

Association (Du30CSA) during a private visit
at Davao City’s new Child Minding Center.

Avancena and members of the Du30 Cabinet Spouses Association (Du30CSA) visited Davao City’s new child-minding center. The spouses brought rubber mats, toys, books, groceries, etc.

Atty. Betty Medialdea and Mrs. Cynthia Dominguez said enabling women to work even as they take care of their family is a core advocacy of the Du30 Cabinet Spouses Association (Du30CSA).

Ms Grace Frias, city youth devt officer, says the center does not just give substitute parental care but also provide age-appropriate developmental activities. “Facilities like this also address the problem of absenteeism and tardiness prevalent among working mothers.”
