Kindergarten

School4Life’s Kindergarten serves children aged 3–5. Our overarching goal is to ensure children are cognitively, socially, and emotionally ready to begin primary school.

At no other time in a person’s life does one learn and develop as quickly and intensely as in the early years. The care and attention a child receives in the first eight years of life are critical and influence the child for life. At School4Life, the children’s eagerness to learn is met through daily activities that help stimulate their minds and capture their interests, such as art projects, games, and songs. The main objective is to cater to the total development of a child, including physical, spiritual, social, and mental growth, brought about through formal and informal interaction with parents and the community. The areas in which we concentrate are health, nutrition, care, and basic education.

Safety, health, and the well being of our children remain our number one priority, and we believe that we can offer parents a calm and secure child-friendly environment that is free from risk whilst offering the freedom for children to play, learn, and explore with the support of an experienced team.

In recent years, Kenya has been able to raise preschool enrollment to close to 74 percent of children aged 3 to 5 years. However, due to cultural, economic, and environmental factors, boys are more likely than girls to be enrolled. Economically, parents who cannot afford to purchase school uniforms for both their sons and daughters tend to favor their boys. A uniform is required for school participation; therefore children without are not able to attend. Equally problematic is the issue of safety and the long distances some children have to walk from their respective homes to the nearest preschool. Parents are usually reluctant to enroll their daughters in preschool programs that are miles away from home. It is also common for parents to keep young girls at home to serve as childcare providers for the younger siblings in the family.

At School4Life we offer free education to the most vulnerable members of the community: young children who would otherwise not be able to attend school. We are pleased to say that we currently offer preschool education to around 150 children.
