The Minimum Service Standards for Quality Improvement of Vulnerable Children Programs in Kenya (2012), defines education service as, ‘The provision of a structured, age appropriate and relevant teaching and learning process, provided by registered educational and/or teaching institutions. Teaching and learning is delivered through both formal and non-formal approaches based on government approved curricula, and encompasses early childhood development at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.’
The project has created an environment that meets the Minimum Service Standards set. The school has been named the Mlimani Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centre and offers a bright and well-ventilated classroom, which has been fully furnished with desks donated from the Sitoi estate. A sanitation facility has been installed for the use of the school and a playground is being built where the children can play on a slide, swing and see-saw.
