A raised brick path leads to this basic building. Three windows allow plenty of ventilation. There is one main room in which the children congregate. Inside there are a number of posters and work by the children on the walls. The usual tarpaulin mat lies below foot on which to sit on. There are a couple of chairs here, but not many more resources. Outside, however, the nursery has a great frame from which two swings hang for the children to play on. There are several tires for outside play, too.
A toilet is available. Opposite the main nursery building there is a separate, smaller building which could act as a storage place. Room to prepare food is available outside. A tap is utilized for water collection close by.
