Frigoken recognises the challenges working women face, child care being a major one. The company established an onsite child care facility (crèche); a unique service in the region for children aged 6 months to 3 years. The facility strives to provide a safe, healthy, and caring environment that promotes the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of children, while maintaining familiarity and consistency with their home life. Services provided at the crèche include the provision of nutritious and well balanced meals, constant holistic care, and structured learning with an emphasis on Early Childhood Development (ECD). The carers at the crèche are trained in ECD, and also provide parenting education sessions.
With a large workforce, and a limited capacity at the crèche, FKL partnered with the Aga Khan Foundation and Daraja to enhance local child care facilities to improve the quality of care for the children.
