DSWD mandates provision of comfort rooms in all day care centersby Necitas G. Alconis
BASCO, Batanes, January 5 (PIA) -- Municipal Local Government operations Officer Eunicia Gato said that local government units should provide built-in comfort rooms in all day care centers in their respective municipalities.
In the ongoing monitoring activity of LGU Basco for the search for model barangay, the monitoring teams included in the set of criteria the presence of a built-in comfort room at the day care centers for the safety, sanitation and convenience of day care pupils.
As of November 2011, only four of the six day care centers in Basco complied with the construction of comfort room in the day care centers. These are barangays San Antonio, San Joaquin, Kayvaluganan and Kayhuvukan.
The other two barangay are in the process of constructing comfort rooms and the day care pupils are still using a separate structure near the day care centers. (TCB/NGA/PIA Batanes)
