Choosing the Right Kindergarten for Your Child in Kenya

When looking for a kindergarten for your child, there are things that you have to consider. Below are the major ones.

A for Apple

  • School proximity
This refers to how far or close the school is to your house. Your best bet will be a school in your neighbourhood. Most schools offer transportation though and you need to put in mind the school’s bus schedule to see whether it works for you.

  • Special interests like arts, language, and alternative programs
Each kid is born with special talents and interests. If your child is into arts, you might need to choose a school that offers that. If she is into dancing, a school with a ballet class would be a plus.

  • School curriculum structure
Different schools have different curriculum structures. Whichever you choose to go with, remember that at this age, what your child needs best is a programme that allows them to explore their creativity and be themselves. Play time is very important.

  • Your financial situation
The situation of your pockets also determines the perfect school  for your child. You do not want to settle for a school that is too expensive . Choose one that is just right for your budget.

  • School amenities
The playground and other amenities for physical activities should also be considered. Does the school have a gymnasium, is there a swimming pool and how important do you consider these amenities. It is difficult to get everything in one school, just see whether what you consider important is available.

  • Talk to other parents in the community. 
Finally, make sure to talk to other parents with kids in that school to learn whether the kindergarten has a good reputation.
