Aims & objectives

Carpet Time is time for oral learning, aimed at developing thinking skills. All topics for the day are discussed here. The children enjoy participating in ‘what’s special about today.

Nursery environment is a happy stimulating environment equipped to help the child develop towards independence with ease. The class provides for many activities to develop the finer motor skills. The Nursery has a Construction corner for young builders, equipment to help develop finger dexterity and firm grip.  There is also a Home corner for the children to enjoy the ‘Exercises of Practical Life’ activities of home they are so familiar with. A Reading corner where children have their first exposure to handle their very own books!  All learning is done through hands-on experiences, song and play and story.

“Carpet Time is time for oral learning, aimed at developing thinking skills. All topics for the day are discussed here. The children enjoy participating in ‘what’s special about today.”

The classroom provides a holistic environment where new words and heightened vocabulary bursts forth in spurts. Jolly phonics is a fun and child centered approach to teaching literacy. Books 1,2 & 3 are introduced to this age group. Scribbles develop to pattern writing. Creative writing is introduced here, where the child scribbles and expresses to the teacher what he has drawn. The child’s perception is expressed with drawings. Opportunities to develop their vocabulary using flashcards, sentence speaking, listening carefully to stories and instruction is encouraged here.

Numeracy involves rote counting, recognition, number concept, ordering, matching and sorting, and math games. Everything is counted; from chairs to bunnies to ourselves! Everything around has a shape and color. And of course, practice makes us perfect.  Writing and overwriting with color crayons is so much fun that figures start looking like candies.

With Knowledge and Understanding of the World, the children become aware of their surroundings and the world they live in through observation, first-hand experiences, experiments, books and hands-on activities. Just out-of-home themes include topics of familiarity.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development is also an important feature in the nursery plan. Themes are chosen for developing social attitudes, cooperation, caring and sharing learnt through the medium of song, story and role-play.

Creative Development helps burst the creativity in the child. All are budding artists in the making. Touch and feel, dabble, splash, make, construct, sprinkle, stick, roll, create, are the experiential activities in art and craft. Imaginative play and role-play is a favorite pastime here in the home corner.

Physical development is structured play and exercise outdoors, programmed for running, jumping, and fun games suitable for this age. Splashing in the swimming pool is a welcome activity. Busy bees, and gardening activity outdoors is most enjoyable.

If your child is of this age group, he/she definitely belongs here!

Children without proper dress code will not be allowed to participate in the activity. Also mark/ label all your child’s items for easy identification. These include sweaters, bags, snack boxes and water bottles.
Discipline at school
  • Most of our children have developed a sense of right and wrong, hence acceptable behavior amongst children is noticeable. They respond to the teacher’s instructions positively while learning and playing with others in a responsible manner. We like to work in partnership with parents in all personal, social and emotional behavior of the child in case of any disciplinary issues. 
Term Exams/ Continuous assessment.
  • Assessment is integral to successful teaching and learning. Assessment therefore reveals how far children are performing at school. Children will therefore write exams in the beginning, middle and end of term as per the regulations of UNEB.

The new term‘s   overview / outlines will soon be sent home for Parents  to know the class  planning for the term.
Pick up time.
  • We remind parents that pick up time for PI, PII, PIII is from 3:00 – 4:00pm. Pick the child on time to have enough sleep in preparation for the next day. A child left at school has no company – he/she becomes restless and tired. Children who wait for their siblings to finish, please ensure that the children are picked up from school latest by 6:00pm. The charges for late pick up after 6:00pm will be 10,000 ush per hour.
