Kubatana Kids is an English speaking pre-school for children between ages 0-5years old, that was opened in May 2015, inspired by the realization that children in Zimbabwe’s high density areas are not receiving adequate ECD education. The lack of this vital grounding has resulted in children entering grade 1 who are neither prepared nor ready for the formal schooling system. Early Childhood Development is believed by Kubatana Kids to be nothing short of vital, a right which we wish all children had access to. It has been noticed more and more than most of Harare’s children below the age of five and from a lower socio-economic sector are not attending any type of school.

Upon the realization of this, the first Kubatana Kids ECD centre was opened in Hatcliffe, a vast high density area just outside of Harare that has a severe lacking in access to schooling, let alone good and affordable education. The school provides many extra equipment and activities. The children do swimming in town, something they would never have access to in Hatcliffe. They also do gymnastics and have access to paints, educational toys, books, daily worksheets and two nutritious meals a day.
