TEACH Rwanda


Mission: Enrich children’s lives by establishing world-class early childhood teacher education in Rwanda.

Vision: Build capacity to provide high-quality professional development to teachers of young children in Rwanda.

TEACH Rwanda operates Bright School, an accredited demonstration Exemplary Preschool that is expanding into primary one level each year. We also partner with other Exemplary and Project Preschools in Rwinkwavu, Nduba Sector, and Kigali. All of our schools are open to visitors, where they will see high-quality ECE, small classes of Rwandan children learning with the Rwandan competency-based curriculum and learning materials, implemented by Rwandan teachers. The result? Joyful learning and children’s academic success. In conjunction with these demonstration schools, TEACH Rwanda has designed a Module system of professional development for pre-service and in-service teachers, college and university faculty, and education leaders to learn about modern, research-based best practices that have been tailored to Rwanda. In-classroom mentoring is available for teachers who have completed these in-depth, practical seminars. TEACH Rwanda is also a partner with Premier ECDE TEACHER’s College to provide a modern ECDE curriculum with associated hands-on interactive learning experience.
