Who We Are
Our motto is Fear God, Be Wise. (Based on Proverbs 1:7 – “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom …”). By this motto, we are encouraging our learners to fear God, who will in turn grant them their heart’s desires and above all, wisdom, which they need in every life’s endeavors.

We believe that there has to be a relationship between the Creator of mankind, the nation, the vision bearer and the benefactors of Education. In bridging all these, our guiding principles are:

a) God’s Word on educating children (Deut 4:9 – 10, Proverbs 22:6)
b) The National Education Policy (the 1995 constitution amended in 2006)
c) Our School Vision

Why Choose Lala’s?

We stand by and instill these values in our learners:

1) The fear of God
2) Self-reliance
3) Excellence (in whatever they put their hands to)
4) Discipline

Small class sizes and highly qualified teachers

We believe in our kids getting a personalized educational experience – because each of them is unique. We want to develop their strengths and help each one to get better in the areas that they need more support. To accomplish this goal, our class sizes are kept small, and we hire highly qualified teachers with diverse skills. Our teachers are also trained in working with special needs children.

Learning only happens when it is fun

Lala’s is all about impacting kids’ lives positively by giving them the right knowledge and the right values. Our approach to education is to always keep it fun. From our tree-house to our library, from our science lab to our playground, we constantly encourage their curiosity.

Our strong vision and mission drive our activities and partnerships

We work hand in hand with a number of organizations in seeing to the spiritual, physical, emotional, social and mental development of our learners. These include Watoto Church, Doctors’ Hospital, Mildmay Uganda, the Children’s Medical Centre among others.

Our History.

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.

We serve Seguku, Zana, Katale, Kazinga, Lweza, Lubowa, Kajjansi, Kigo, Bweya, Kawotto, Nakigalala, Kitende, Bwebajja, Namulanda, Kisubi, Garuga and surrounding areas.
We also have children from out of Kampala and Wakiso Districts, who are dropped off on Monday mornings and picked on Friday evenings for the weekend.
Parent’s Testimonials
Allan & Justine Twinomugisha
Esther and Emmanuella's Parents

We enrolled Esther at Lala's when she was about two years. What makes a whole difference is that the school foundation is God centered. Our daughters, enjoy all the teachers. It is a well-knit community where everyone knows everyone and look out for each other, be it parents, teachers and children. We are so thankful for Lala’s and we have purposed to enroll Emmanuella when her time comes.

Jesse Ayebare
Senior Pioneer
I joined Lala's Daycare Centre when i was 2 and a half years old, when my mother, MS.  Christine Murungi, started it. I still have scanty sweet memories like the day we, the very first alumni "graduated". I remember the teachers and the friends I made then. We played, we fought and we learned! We still are in touch with one another, thanks to Mama, who keeps a tab on "her children".
Lala's has "lived" for 12 years, through "summers" and "winters" and I've been there to witness everything. Sure they have been many ups and downs but God has made it possible for Lala's to evolve from a daycare centre, to a kindergarten and now, to an only inclusive school in the region.
Pascal and Joy Karatunga
Eugene's Parents
My name is Joy Karatunga and I'm glad to be a part of the great Lala's family. I cannot forget the day that I met the director Christine Murungi - a good friend and mentor. I was stuck with my child until I met this unique place that is full of life and love.
When I came to the school with our son Eugene, he used to have daily convulsions. He had been rejected by several other schools. But Christine calmly accepted to take him. After so many therapy sessions, along with the staff at Lala's that I call prayer warriors, I now call Eugene my living testimony. A child who was once destructive with weird social skills is now calm and able to interact with others.

God bless you!
