Nursery Schools in the Refugee camps

Each of the 7 camps has its own nursery school system, managed by a variety of  individuals and organisations. At the camp level KWO is involved in all camp Nursery Schools to some degree. KWO has provided advice and assistance to all of these nursery schools for many years. In most camps the children are  from 2.5 – 5 years of age and attend school 185 days per year from 9am to 3pm.

Nursery School Classes include:

  • beginner’s literacy in three languages (Karen, Burmese and English),

  • numeracy activities

  • basic science games

  • creative skills

All Nursery Schools in all the camps, no matter who is managing them, receive funding from TBBC to provide the children with a nutritional lunch every day.
