Classes & Curriculum

a

Crèche/Play Group: 2-3 Years

This is the first exposure from home to School. According to Juja Kindergarten School, this is the most sensitive and crucial stage where a child starts to build and acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills. We are keen with the child, and we provide a lot of attention and training to help the child become independent at an early age. We provide a home away from home.

a

Kindergarten (KG1): 3-4 Years

At this level, we introduce the young ones to academic based activities on themes outlined in the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) syllabus. The pupils are also taught sounds and numbers. The themes covered are basically derived from the world around us. This helps the child to interact positively in the environment and to be more aware of themselves and others.

a

Pre-Primary 1 (PP1): 4-5 Years

This class comprises of pupils at age four. Pupils come from KG1 having learnt the sounds A – Z and are building up on language, making, reading and writing two and three letter words. They are still learning the aspect of sharing items of play, learning and feelings. They are also acquiring logical thinking, negotiation skills and survival skills. We train them how to be independent, confident and build their self-esteem through learning activities. Well articulated and integrated learning activities employed at this stage.

a

Pre-Primary 2 (PP2): 5-6 Years

The children have grown through the two stages of foundation learning and are on their way to Preparatory School. After PP2 we graduate pupils who are confident in performing their learning activities, and guiding their juniors in School activities day in day out. They are the big brothers and sisters in the Kindergarten. Sometimes it's heartbreaking for them to leave the warmth of the Kindergarten in which they have thrived to grow academically and physically.

Games & Physical Education

Participation of children in psychomotor activities play a big role in their holistic development and this is seen in their:
A. Motor skills development and performance
B. Educational potential
As children participate in the aforementioned activities, they learn about important values such as:
  • Taking turns.
  • Respect for themselves and others.
  • Adherence to rules and regulations.
  • Honesty.
Playing also helps children to develop self-esteem and confidence especially after managing a challenging task. Sports enables children to deal with competition and teaches them how to cope with winning and losing.
Currently, we have engaged UJUZI SOKA, a body of professionals that engages the young ones in sports and other psychomotor activities.
