Featured Accomplishments

ECD Education is enshrined in the constitution as the County’s responsibility and we see it as the foundation of education for all students and therefore we are taking it very seriously and investing heavily in our young learners

Hon. Samuel Seki

CEC- Education and Vocational Training

On education, our focus must be on ensuring that there is a well-connected continuum in our education pipeline, from early childhood development, through to pre-primary, primary, secondary, tertiary education and through to workplace skills development and adult learning.

In this regard, the County Integrated Early Childhood Development (ECD) Action Plan that is being developed by the Department of Education will contribute immensely to improve access to ECD services.

We were in an old class for five years, it was a multi-purpose building and we had many problems, including animals entering the classroom and eating our materials. But now we have a brand new building which is very secure, and the children are very happy with the new classroom and new furniture. We are really happy and say a big thank you to the county government.
