Pre School


Opening hours:


7:30-16:00 -Monday to Friday




The Pre School is open for children aged 1 years (12 months) to 6 years. We have the Kidogo group for the youngest children 1 - 3 years, and Kubwa group for the 3 - 6 year olds. "Kidogo" means little, and "Kubwa" means big in Swahili. 

We follow a Nordic approach to education, where children develop language, life skills and physical coordination through interaction and play according to their age and individual ability.The children are taught Nordic songs and games and read books in Nordic languages.

The Pre School celebrates traditional Nordic holidays such as Christmas, Easter and Lucia. In this way the children maintain their language and culture and are better prepared when they return to their respective countries. The children are also exposed to Tanzanian culture through a month-long project in October as well as through songs, games and regular contact with Tanzanian employees.

In the morning, the children gather to eat fruit and have a common start of the day. Then the children spend time in both separate and mixed age groups performing a wide variety of activities including music, drama, artwork, swimming, sports, games and free play. Hot lunch is served at 11:00-12:00. After lunch, the children nap/rest. After resting time various activities are organized. At 14:30 it is time for a snack such as yoghurt and fruits, after which activities and play continue until the children are picked up by their parents.
