The Pre-school was initially started as a Day care centre when a need arose to have a place where women with young children who had no one to take care of them at home could come with them to the training centre. The main aim was to support these mothers who would otherwise not be able to attend the skills training offered at Maria Training Centre. With this facility, the mothers are able to come with their children and have them close by and taken care of at the Day Care Centre. Those of school going age join the other classes that is baby class, nursery and pre-unit. The day care and pre-school also serves the local community.
Maria Training Centre has an early childhood education unit which has Pre-unit, Nursery and Baby Class. It also has an on-site Day care centre.
