This facility is created for the children of all the staff under the Mangalore Jesuit Educational Society. Being centrally located in the campus at Kodialbail, Mangaluru, this day care center is easily accessible to the staff of Primary School, High School, St Aloysius Gonzaga School, PU College and the Degree College.
Children between the age of 6months and 3 years will be taken care of by well experienced staff, including a qualified nurse.
A project backed and promoted by Rev Dr Leo Dsouza has been implemented by the Rector Rev Fr Melwin J Pinto. The center is very spacious and spread over 1500sq ft; the interior walls have been adorned with hand paintings designed and conceptualized by artist John Chandran and brought together by his team of artists Bhavan, Abhishek, Sujith, Dakshith, Vikyath and Kaushik. The seven artists have taken nearly two weeks to beautifully paint these walls with child safe paints.
