KBA Kindergarten offers a child-friendly environment with self-driven, God fearing, caring qualified professionals with a motherly spirit dedicated towards molding and bringing up a holistic child.
Children within the 3 – 5 years age bracket are taught and nurtured in readiness for the demands of lower primary school upon completion of the pre-school curriculum. The team has embraced creativity and innovation in order to make learning fun and enjoyable thereby ensuring optimum reception by the learners in any given session.
Information is widely shared and continual consultations take place among the team players of this section. Teachers sharpen their skills through research on the new methodologies of teaching, classroom management and interaction as well as continual benchmarking with other kindergartens that have excelled in diverse ways within our environment.
An extensive reading culture is cultivated among the preschoolers through the reading of story books found in our well stocked library and is then sharpened as learners acquire beginning, middle and final sounds. In addition, the alphabet is fully taught both in its order and phonetically as well as compound words which are taught in a fun filled environment.
When need for duplication of worksheets and pictures arises, we have efficient copy machines in place for that particular purpose.Effective assessment tools have been put in place to monitor and evaluate learners’ progress. Individual academic and non-academic assessment progress record is one of the tools that help us view a child as an individual.
Learning is made practical through educational tours and trips with children getting opportunities to visit fascinating sites and destinations which motivate them to relate learning with real life. Daily and weekly inspiring devotions nourish the learners spiritually.Under the watchful eye of their care-givers, learners get to enjoy breath-taking events such as:
ü Annual sports day ü Swimming club ü A well-equipped playroom ü National music Festivals ü Fun Days
To ensure we teach and maintain excellent hygiene, we have clean and well maintained facilities and plenty of clean piped water to learn hand washing techniques.
Admission to kindergarten
For those joining the beginner class, the age for admission is strictly 3 years. This is done at the beginning of the year and learners are taken through an assessment programme to ascertain their readiness for school and its activities.
The parent/guardian MUST present a birth certificate as this is not only the child’s identification document but it also shows their age.Pupils wishing to join middle and pre-unit classes are taken through a competitive written / formal interview upon which those who satisfy the examining team are admitted.
We uphold values of modesty in our teachers and learners at all time. Grooming that reflect Christian standards is embraced and for that reason pupils are not allowed to have dreadlocks. Boys are encouraged to have a clean hair cut whereas girls are expected to have plain neat cornrows with green and white rubber bands if need be.
At KBA Kindergarten the learner grows academically and spiritually and based on the results achieved so far and feedback received, it has become a center of excellence known to many.
