[File, Standard]Parents in Nairobi now have a reason to smile as the city government scraps school fees for all 14,000 nursery children. Currently, parents with children in high-end city nursery schools pay up to Sh6,000 per term, translating to Sh18,000 per year. Parents in lowest charging nursery school pay about Sh4,000 per term, translating to some Sh12,000 annually. Under the free education for nursery children, parents will only be required to purchase school uniform and provide medical care for children. Of these, 24 centers are stand alone ECDE centers while the remaining 205 are nursery centers attached to primary schools.
