At the Primary school, we offer pre-primary education for three-year groups.

Class activities for Pre-Primary run from 7.30 am to 12.00 pm.
We mainly offer Day School facilities at this level. Our children join the primary school at six years of age.
We offer the Cambridge and UNEB curriculum at the Bwebajja (Entebbe Rd) campus and only UNEB at Taibah Junior School – Kawempe.
