Father Ray Day Care Center
Each morning youngsters from the poorest areas of Pattaya arrive to spend the day in a safe environment while they parents go off to work.
The center provides all the children with breakfast on arrival, as many have no food at home, and they also receive lunch and snacks.
Uniforms are also provided, free of charge, and a nurse visits once a month to check on the health of the toddlers.
The children are learning to socialize with other children, they are learning to read and write and they are learning through play, all to prepare them for when they enter government school kindergartens.
