De La Salle University (DLSU) President and Chancellor Br.Armin Luistro FSC and De La Salle-College of St. Benilde (DLS-CSB) President Br. Victor Franco FSC signed a Memorandum of Cooperation last August 11 to formalize their joint support for the St. La Salle Preschool (SLSP).
Through this agreement, a new building was constructed by DLSU to house the preschool on the property of DLS-CSB located on Fidel Reyes St., Manila. The new facility has a larger classroom with a reading corner and play area, a faculty room, and comfort rooms. The College of Education (CED) will be responsible for and manage all the educational components, staff requirements, and financial management of the SLSP, including the design and implementation of the curriculum geared towards the whole development and Christian upbringing of the pupil, the building of professional competencies of the staff assigned to SLSP, and the supervision of instructional and delivery of learning situations and activities.
For its part, DLS-CSB will provide a feeding program for the pupils and will enhance the teaching-learning process by sharing its expertise in relevant academic programs including performing arts,visual arts and other related areas. The two institutions will also engage in other joint activities to ensure the further progress of SLSP.
Established in 1997, SLSP was established by CED as an outreach program under the inspiration of the late Br. Andrew Gonzalez FSC, then president of DLSU. The preschool provides quality preschool education to children in the Leveriza area and nearby urban poor communities.
