Nursery, (creche), at Semanhyiya American School


With our 2nd  and 3rd grade classrooms built and our second graders in session, we listened to the community of Senase, our school board members, as well as the Ministry of Education and decided our next step should be the addition of a Nursery, (creche), at Semanhyiya American School.
