MANILA - Building on findings that large-scale public preschool programs can substantially boost children’s early learning, Manila's premier state university is teaming up with a national government agency to set up the country’s first National Child Development Center cum Training Laboratory.

The center envisioned at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) will offer curricular studies for teachers on early childhood care and development - a vital field which does not receive enough focus in institutions of higher learning.

The center, to be housed in a new building planned for construction in time for SY 2017-2018, is the centerpiece of the Memorandum of Understanding signed Tuesday by the PLM and the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Council, a national government agency.
