Early Childhood Care and Development
The KKFI believes that all children need good education health and nutrition. They need the opportunity to attend schools staffed by qualified teachers and environment that are conducive for teaching and learning.
The KKFI offers ECCD (Nursery, Kindergarten, Preparatory and Supervised Neighborhood Play) in three communities, 2 in Manila and 1 in Pulilan, Bulacan. The school in P. Paredes caters to 42 students for school year 2019-2020, utilizing a subsidized tuition fee scheme so that parents can send their children to school without the burden of paying high fees.
After two years of working at the dumpsite in Pulilan, Bulacan, we started implementing Supervised Neighborhood Play (SNP). For school year 2019-2020, we have 25 children aged 2-7 years old. This ensures that children are ready to go to school when they enter Grade 1. A feeding program is also being facilitated in partnership with local mothers and the Barangay Health Workers.
SNP is also implemented at the Manila North Cemetery with 56 enrolled children for school year 2019-2020.
