Kalinga Day Care Center Remote Learning Program

Children have the right to be taken care of, and they should not be left behind amid this pandemic.

The Kalinga Day Care Center (KDCC) will continue its services to the community by having online sessions. There may be no physical interactions but KDCC aims to provide psychosocial care through our virtual interactions, and carefully planned activities.

This school year will be very different yet exciting for all of us as we will implement a different form of learning. If you are interested in our child care services this year, kindly fill-up our application form: bit.ly/KDCCApp2020.
