These can be nurseries, crèche, playschool or daycare services focusing on the young child’s skills.

Zambia pre-school services cover places of learning that cater to children prior to their primary education. In Zambia, these can be nurseries, crèche, playschool or daycare services. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, focusing on each young child’s cognitive, social-emotional and physical growth. The age group in Zambia pre-schools is from two or three years to five years, occasionally rising to seven years. Whilst many parents choose to keep their children within the home during these early years, others look for childcare for their children to prepare them for primary school. Selecting childcare for your toddler or child can be quite confusing. When it comes to playgroups, preschools, nurseries – find out what is best for your child.

Zambia pre-schools ensure that each child who completes the preschool program develops the skills necessary to successfully enter and succeed in primary school. They will help your child develop mastery in numeracy and literacy through their innovative approach to early year’s education. This will lay the foundations for all the years to come. Children learn through playing with each other and interacting with the environment around them. That is why pre-schools create environments and educational activities that stimulate play and interaction. Play allows children to explore, investigate and re-enact in an environment where they are free from fear and judgement. It helps fine and gross motor skills development and also helps develop core stability which in turn helps children to learn how to write and supports creative growth.

Making sure your child gets the best possible start is something that every parent wants and it is what they deliver. Whether they are counting, singing the alphabet or climbing trees, your child will be developing problem-solving skills, self-awareness and all the while becoming a happy and confident individual that will go on to make a positive and valuable contribution to society.

Zambian pre-schools welcome children of diverse backgrounds and strive to make necessary accommodations to enhance each child’s opportunity for learning. They set out to create a place where children would be supported and nurtured and encouraged to be curious. Most schools are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to education, where teachers respect each child individually and help them be the authors of their own learning. They have always aimed to create an environment that feels like an extension of a child’s home, where he/she feels welcome and confident. Schools have an open-door policy for parent involvement, and nothing makes children prouder than when their parents are involved in their education.

Pre-schools make sure that children thrive and grow with them - from the day they enrol for the first time, to the day they are ready to start primary school! The needs and resources of children are met with respect, recognition, acceptance and tolerance, as a source of development and growth. Teachers listen, have time to provide care and security and create moments filled with joy and humour. Their goal is to give children confidence in their own abilities and allow them to be experts in their own experiences.
