CENTEX considers child development to be the collaborative work of teachers, parents, community members, and other stakeholders. It focuses on the essentials for lifelong learning—classroom pedagogy, development of critical thinking skills, values clarification, and use of technology in the classroom.
CENTEX started with two public schools in Manila and Batangas, and has now evolved into a program that delivers the “CENTEX way” of education through mentoring and teacher training across the Philippines.
