The Nature and Extent of Psychosocial Problems Facing Orphaned Pupils In Public Pre-Schools in Nakuru Municipality, Kenya

Maina Jecinta Wanjiru

Healthy child development depends, to a great extent, on the continuity of social relationships and development of a sense of competence. Like adults, children are grieved by the loss of their parents. They suffer from anxiety and fear during the years of parental illness followed by grief and trauma after the death of parent (s). This study determines nature and extent of psychosocial problems facing orphaned pupils in public pre-schools in Nakuru municipality, Kenya. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. Descriptive statistics (percentage and frequencies) presented in tables and pie charts were used to summarize data and to describe the characteristics of the sample. 20 % of 240 orphans in public preschools was used to get a sample of 48 pupils. A big percentage 22 (88 %) felt isolated. Most of the orphaned preschool pupils had not been debriefed. Orphaned preschool children had psychosocial problems which needed attention to enable them to adjust.
