There are 2 daycare centers for the children of 3 years to 5 or 6 year olds. These daycare centers operate on very little. The parent’s pay 20 baht a day per child for lunch, if they can afford that, otherwise the children will be cared for without cost.
The centers provide 2 meals a day plus snack. The Metropolitan government gives them free milk and takes care of the rent, water electricity, and paying the staff. One center has 2 staff for 20 children. The other one which is bigger has 3 staff for 35 to 40 children.
