The Mango Tree Pre-Primary School

Return to Gallery Index
Every week day morning between 60 and 70 disadvantaged pre-school children are collected from home and taken to the Mango Tree Pre-Primary School at Mango House. Pre-primary school gives children a huge hand up by preparing them to enter school. The children learn basic English and Marathi, count, learn simple words and phrases, have fun and play. Milk and biscuits are given mid morning and lunch when studies are over. The morning finishes with tooth brushing before the children head for home. Without this assistance children would really struggle in the initial years at primary school but with it children's confidence, self-esteem and behaviour all develop making their transition to primary school so much easier.
