Nursery class loses its home

Nursery Class at Ganet’s Adventure School, Malawi

The school’s nursery, which cares for and feeds 35 energetic two to four year olds five days a week, has lost its premises. The local church, which had kindly hosted the nursery until now, is rebuilding, and so the children now do not have a suitable place to learn.

The nursery is crucial to the children and the community because it enables parents to go out and work.It enables children to start to learn and get used to a school environment ahead of starting Standard One at age five. Also, siblings who may otherwise have had to stay home to care for infants can attend school themselves.

The school itself started out as a nursery in 2004, before demand from parents for additional classes led to its expansion.

As a temporary measure the nursery learners are being taught under the veranda of the teacher’s house at our school, though this is not weatherproof. We hope to find a better solution soon, ultimately this is likely to mean a new building is required, along with the classrooms we are seeking to build for some of our other classes.
