Itavi trains all of its mzees (screening childcare professionals) to perform the itavi Method, an engaging curriculum designed by industry experts to provide a mix of interactive and fun playtime with learning opportunities, local cultural immersive, arts and crafts, exercise and more. Before providing any services, a mzee meets with the parents or guardian, and then the child in a one-on-one setting to introduce themselves and learn more about the family and child.


For itavi, the goal is to leave children “better than when they arrive.” Itavi also offers real-time video check-ins and have a formal process to ensure a safe and positive experience.
