Around 200 day care children from different cities and towns in Central Visayas participated in the 2014 Regional Children's Contest held at J Centre Mall, Mandaue City. The event aims to showcase the different talents of children and to raise awareness of the public on the positive effects of children experiencing psycho-social-spiritual stimulation in Day Care Centers.
