The Dome-Kwabenya Early Childhood Learning Centre

The early childhood learning centre at Dome-Kwabenya was constructed by BSW International for the Ghana Education Service.

The school is one of the 160 completed kindergarten blocks across the country, the president said on Facebook.

He said the plan is to build 350 schools in total and renovate several dilapidated KG blocks.

"Government will continue to take the education of millions of Ghanaian children seriously. We will continue to invest in education, and help secure our country’s future, for these interventions are geared towards the growth and development of Ghana," the president posted.
