Pattaya housing project offers free childcare for night-working parents

Minister of Social Development and Human Security Juti Krairerk, Nongprue Mayor Mai Chaiyanit, and honorable guests cut the ribbon to open the childcare center.

Low-income parents working nights can now receive free childcare at East Pattaya’s Ban Eua Arthorn Project.

Social Development and Human Security Minister Juti Krairerk opened the Night Care Child Center at the Soi Nernplabwan housing project Aug. 24 with Nongprue Mayor Mai Chaiyanit and Human Help Network Foundation Thailand Director Radchada Chomjinda.

Parents are already bringing their children to register at the night childcare center.

The childcare center serves a crucial need in Ban Eua Arthorn as many low-income parents work nights and have no one to watch their kids.

The center cares for children ages three months to six years old from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. There is no charge for residents.
