A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the center (and offices) of
A Child Can Foundation, Inc. It was a good opportunity to learn more about services that are available in Manila in case I need to refer kids to them, but also a good opportunity to meet the program director, Anna Romualdez because they also refer kids to our school.
The entrance / reception area is very welcoming.
I was given a tour of the center and was very pleased to see how bright, attractive and pleasing the place was.
The following pictures were taken in a general shared area where the kids sometimes come to do 'big' group activities.
One of the one-on-one areas.
Curtains enclose the room to ensure some privacy.
Pictures and mobile schedules used by the kids.
A place to do circle time or storytime.
In the other part of the center, they have smaller rooms where children can work one on one or in small groups. In the afternoon, these rooms serve as learning centers for the kids in the school readiness and social thinking programs.
The different signs and pictures indicate what they focus or work on when inside that room or area.
The doorway to the restroom.
A child's communication book and what seems like a schedule or a choice board.
I wasn't able to take a picture but there is also a big area in the middle of the rooms where the kids can work on gross motor activities and play games.
I was very interested to know that they have different programs such as one-on-one programs, a school readiness program and a social thinking program.

All in all I was very happy with my visit here, thanks to Anna Romualdez and Kye Lerma for taking the time to take me around and explain things to me :).
