Breastfeeding Station

A breastfeeding station is located at the Office of Gender Concerns (1st floor, Main Building of UPOU Headquarters) for all who will need a room to breastfeed their infant. A refrigerator is also available in the office for milk storage. The UP Open University provides this lactation station as mandated by the Republic Act 10028 or the Expanded Breastfeeding Promotion Act of 2009 to government institutions and agencies.

Kid's Corner

For UPOU constituents who have children they need help taking care of while they are in the premises of the campus, a child-minding center or kids’ corner is set-up at the Office of Gender Concerns. Republic Act No. 8980 or the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) Act mandates the institutionalization of a comprehensive, integrative and sustainable National System for ECCD at the national and local levels among the government.
