A comprehensive early childhood care and pre-primary education program is essential for the physical, psychological, social, emotional and moral development of all children. A very limited regular school allows children with disabilities to enrol in the school, sometimes they are unaddressed by teachers. If all children including children with disabilities are given stimulation and education together in the same class (inclusive setting) both can learn from each other and receive peer support. The aim of this this inclusive school is to provide pre-school (kindergarten) and primary to secondary education for all children. To facilitate each child’s full potential, all the classes provide multi-sensory curriculum. Modern techniques and effective communication ensure that lessons and activities are motivating, relevant and joyfull. Extracurricular activities offer the overall development of a child’s potential.
