Wake up! Early Education Centre
A dual language site for a donor-funded Montessori pre-school in Otjomuise, Windhoek. The centre is governed by the Penduka Daycare Centre Trust, a Namibian Trust registered in 2008 with the aim of promoting and supporting early childhood development and education in Namibia.
The children attending the centre come from the residential area around the centre and from the informal settlement ‘over the hill’ (least income families). About a third of them can be considered vulnerable: they are children from single parents, handicapped parents and single mums or grandmothers without a job or with hardly a job. All our parents and guardians pay some school fees but the amount is set according to income with the lowest amount starting at only N$50 per month.
JARO Consultancy developed, maintains and updates the website on a pro bono basis.
