With the realization that there was severe need for day care services in and around Kampala in 2001, Ms. Murungi Christine started “nurturing” the idea of providing this much needed service to parents. In 2005, a job opportunity presented itself at Ambrossoli International School, where she worked for about a year and acquired some skills and experience on how to operate this kind of business.
Christine partnered with friends to raise sufficient resources and embarked on seeing her dream come true. In February 2007, Lala’s Daycare Center opened its doors to the public with just one child, Jesse Ayebare. By the end of 2007, there were 6 babies. Kindergarten was introduced in 2008 this grew Lala’s student count to 28, 3 teachers and 2 nannies.
Today, Lala’s has developed into a fully-fledged Kindergarten School, licensed and registered by the Ministry of Education & Sports. And at the beginning of 2018, we introduced a section for children with special needs, where we now have 3 children with cerebral palsy and 8 children on the Autism Spectrum.
