The day care teachers of Baliwag underwent an introductory training on Developmentally Appropriate Practices at the Montessori de Sagrada Familia. They were trained by the School Directress herself, Ms. Maria Crisitina Santos-Silamor or Teacher Cris.
Teacher Cris was appointed by Mayor Estrella as chief consultant to the daycare program in order to fully reform the education program for an age group needing so much attention. Also, Teacher Cris and Municipal Administrator were assigned as vice chair of the newly-created ECCD council.
As of the moment, the ultimate goal of the prof devt program is to promote a sense of paradigm shift among the day care teachers in terms of their teaching pedagogy and learning philosophy and align them with authentic and research based early learning practices.
