We encourage parents to participate actively in the development of their children and to visit our nursery after consultation with the teachers. Parent meetings and parent evenings are organized by teaching staff.


At 10:00 in the morning the children enjoy  freshly prepared snacks. At noon they receive a warm vegetarian meal.


In addition to the standard curriculum of the Tanzanian school we teach the children in the subjects of drawing, computer science, sports and social sciences. From Grade 3 to Grade 6 we teach the children in French.
