BEE Montessori Preschool
BEE Montessori Preschool - tuition free - opened in February 2017 serving at-risk preschool age children in Bagamoyo. We started with 15 children aged 2 1/2 to 4 years old. Due to the success of our first class and a high demand for quality education in Bagamoyo we opened a second class in January 2018 with an additional 18 students. In 2019 we grew again and now have 46 students ranging from 2 - 5 years old. Our head teacher, Glory Mosha, and assistant teacher Albina Simon, both graduated from the International Montessori Teacher Training College in Dar es Salaam and have been teaching the Montessori principles to our students, office staff, SES members and the Preschoolers' parents.
In addition to a wonderful education BEE students end their day with a cup, or two, of fortified porridge to give them nutrition that most do not receive at home. Our goal is to provide a head start for these children through preschool and continue to support them through other ASFE programs once they graduate from BEE and move onto primary school.
Asante Sana to Betsy, Emily and Ellie van Gemeren (BEE) for their support in making this ASFE dream a reality.
