This focused on the existence of pre-primary education, factors influencing implementation of PEP, Stakeholders participation in improvement of preprimary education and the solutions on what should be done to ensure effective implementation of the PEP in Lindi Municipality. A cross-sectional survey design was used to carry out the study. The primary data were collected by questionnaires, observation, documentary review and the interview guides. Purposive sampling was used for Educational Officers, Ward Education Coordinators, School Committee Members and Pre-primary school teachers whereas simple random sampling was applied to the Primary teachers. Questionnaires included structured and semi-structured questions administered through drop-and-pick method to the Primary teachers and Members of school committee.
