Expats in Uganda

Your Practical Guide to settling and living in Uganda

Kampala offers an extensive network of childcare for kids aged between 3 months and 3 years. It’s not compulsory, but is advised for parents with busy schedules and for the safety of a child when a parent is away, for active preparation for the Nursery Education. All day care centers in Kampala are privately owned.

What you need to know about your child’s care center/facility:
  • Opening times and closing days, cost per day and are nappies and food included on the cost?
  • Admission conditions ( age, vaccine) and a copy of internal rules, what happens if a child is ill.
  • What does your child do during the day?
  • Is their sleep rhythm respected or must we follow strict sleeping periods?
