Public nursery schools in Nairobi will be free of charge from next month if City Hall adopts a new proposal.

The proposal dubbed Free Early childhood and Pre-primary Education is set to be tabled before the county Cabinet chaired by Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko on Monday.

Current gazetted charges for nursery are between Sh600 and Sh1,300 per term,  exclusive of lunch which is priced depending on schools.

A report by the county indicates there are 538,258 children who are under five years in Nairobi.
