Fengshan Child Development Community Service Center is entrusted by the Social Bureau of Kaohsiung City Government and operated by Eden Social Welfare Foundation, providing parenting consultation and seminars, developing community-based services and early intervention hourly services. The center also provides a wealth of toys to enhance the development of children, so that children at every stage of development can receive age-appropriate stimulation and have a safe and comfortable play space.
The event opened with a rhythm performance by the slow-flying Angels from the hourly class, followed by a video recording of the learning of the children at the center. For example, 5-year-old En-Chi, who was referred by the social worker to Fengshan Community Service Center which nearer her home, has made significant progress in cognition and expression through the early intervention hourly service. The mother is now able to enjoy parent-child time more and the child is smiling more, instead of only focusing on the child's capacities as in the beginning.
