Information:
The Albaraca School in Sukuta was first opened its doors to in January, 1998 with just 25 pupils. Today it has nursery places for 150 children covering the ages of 3 to 7 years of old. Their are 4 qualified teachers trained at the Gambia College, a classroom assistant, caretaker and kitchen supervisor as well as the principal.

How to Sponsor A Child:
In Gambia nursery schools don't receive government aid it is entirely dependent on voluntary donations and child sponsorship for their education.

There is a minimum contribution of 30 per annum (payable each August). You will be delivered a sponsorship form which you should return with your cheque or fill in the details instructing a standing order.

All the money from sponsorship goes directly towards the running costs of the kindergarten (mostly on teacher's salaries). During the first term all benefactors receive a picture of their child / teacher and a newsletter. At the end of the academic year (July / August) sponsors will receive a school report on their educational progress during the year.

Buildings:
There are currently 4 classrooms named the Athene for the youngest children, the Langham meant for kids aged 3 and 4, the Dr Joyce Symons classroom for children aged 5 to 6, the Stiffkey for kids aged 6 to 7. There is also the headteacher's office and storeroom building, a library, toilet blocks and a kitchen to serve up nutritious, healthy meals.

Governorship:
Its trustees are based in The Gambia and in the UK and coordinate their work to ensure the efficient running of the school. They send regular shipments of educational supplies and garments.

Learning Style:
The aim of the nursery is to avoid teaching by repetition but to allow the teachers to educate the kids through independent learning by using toys and games.

School Fees:
The children's parents / guardians are obliged to pay a very small amount of money towards their education (less than 20 pence per month).
