Nursery school education is becoming more popular, though not compulsory with some children going straight into state school at the age of seven.
Education from the age of seven is often free but it is the parents’ responsibility to provide materials such as pens and pencils. Attendance is not compulsory and that is why you will see lots of children that should be in school. Recently there has been more children going to school so we would kindly ask you not to encourage skipping school by giving the children gifts or money.
Aisha Memorial Nursery School is among the nursery schools in The Gambia.
