Early Childhood Education: Kindergartens
PARD has been providing education services in Kindergarten (KG) to refugee children for more than 10 years (Levels 1, 2 and 3). These activities are available in three regions in Lebanon: Beirut, Wadi Zyni-Sibline; and Burj Al-Shamali, Tyre. Two of these sites are the Palestinian community gatherings – Daouk and Wadi Zyni – with kindergarten centers located in the heart of these areas. The third site, Burj al-Shamali, is located near several communities including Shabriha, al-Maashouq and Burj al-Shamali camp, where children from those areas benefit from kindergartens. PARD’s certificate is recognized by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education and allows them to enter public schools.
In addition to early childhood education, PARD has provides educational support services to children. Learning support activities mainly focus on helping children with their lessons and assignments after school.
