Every parent would love to give their child the best head start in life especially in terms of education. It is important for children in their initial stages to be nurtured, cared for and taught at the best early childhood education center because a good nursery school can be a gateway to a good education in future.
It is for this specific reason that the Founder of Makena School, Mrs L. A. Obonyo, came up with specific programs that target to nurture young kids from diverse backgrounds. We have a range of programs including:
- Playgroup ( 2 – 3 years)
- Pre-Primary 1 ( 3 – 4 years)
- Pre-Primary 2 (4 – 6 years)
Our curriculum is based on the Kenyan 8-4-4 national system and has been designed such that the child learns the nature of the world through observation, manipulation, and exploration. We primarily focus on child development and believe that by empowering and developing our students we are able to prepare them well for the next chapters of their lives.
We also focus on literacy and numeracy development through books, songs, and games. We believe in encouraging our students to be well rounded hence they not only take part in academic activities but creative and artistic activities as well. Fun and exciting activities such as swimming, music, and sports are incorporated into the curriculum so as to encourage all areas of development.
A provision is made for the full release of energies in outdoor playing games and activities. This has provided a variety of experiences to accustom the child to live in society, as the child interacts with his/her peers which are part of the beginning of establishing patterns of social relationship and promoting independence and a sense of security.
School bus transport is available to and from within the radius of Kenyatta Road and Juja. Hot and nutritious meals are prepared daily by the school catering staff.
