At Brainston Kindergarten, we believe in nurturing the unique capabilities of each child. By offering children an environment designed to stimulate growth in critical areas of early childhood development; intellectual, physical, social and emotional, we pave the way forward for a lifetime of learning.
Our curriculum incorporates a commitment to stimulate different styles of learning. We firmly believe in the combination of a structured environment that includes center-based learning with individual learning and play. As such, our classrooms are equipped with traditional and Montessori materials and daily activities are varied, with academics and the arts.
Based on integrating both the 8-4-4 Kenyan national system & Montessori.
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Our classes are age-grouped as follows
-Play group or Daisy 2-3 years
-Baby (KG1) or Lily 3-4 years
-Nursery (KG2) or Amaryllis 4-5 years
-Pre-Unit or Iris 5-6 years
