Kingdom Nursery

Project Summary Kingdom Nursery is a warm, friendly nursery held in one small building. The room is divided into 2 classrooms, both classes taught by the same woman, so be prepared for a ‘one school room’ atmosphere with children from all ages engaged in many activities. There are 57 students in total aged between 2 ½ - 4 years. The school has a grassy yard to play in and also a small swing set.

Activities You will be responsible for teaching English language and Maths but sports, music and art are always appreciated by the children.

Schedule The school is open from 7.30am and noon every weekday. They have a breaktime at 10am, this is the time when they also receive porridge. There are school holidays of one month in December and July and they also take one week off in April.

Resources The school has very limited resources, as Mary is currently buying everything for the school, in addition to sponsoring the 10 orphans attending. She provides all the children with exercise books and pencils. There are 2 small blackboards and chalk and there are posters on the wall. However, there are no tables and chairs, the children are taught on mats on the floor. The school does have electricity and a water supply.

Special Points As it is a private nursery, 47 children of the 57 pay the school fees of 5,000TSh a month. The children could always use exercise books, pens, pencils and other educational materials. All children are available for individual sponsorship. The teacher is qualified from Montessori and is a very effective teacher, but Mary and the school would benefit greatly from 1-2 volunteers in this school.
