Abstract

This study assessed the influence of physical resources on pupils’ learning in preschools in Pamba ward, Nyamagana district in Mwanza region. The researcher employed the mixed approach in which both qualitative and quantitative methods were used. Tools for data collection were questionnaire, observation and focus group discussion. The study findings indicate overcrowded of pre-primary classes, classes without sufficient physical facilities like desks, toilets, water and play grounds. Moreover, teaching and learning material were not enough and the few available were of poor quality. The study concludes that the teaching and learning environment of pre-primary schools are not conducive for effective teaching and learning. Based on the findings and given the importance of preschool education for future learning, the study recommends to the Government and other stakeholders in the provision of primary education to provide sufficient budget that will cover all the basic requirements for establishing pre-primary classes to every primary school in order to facilitate effective teaching and learning. It is also recommended that the education policy should recognize and state that what is at present called pre-primary class is part and not an attachment or an annex to a primary school. This will make primary schools to start with preparatory class. Keywords: Pre-primary education; teaching and learning; infrastructure.
