A Message from the Deputy Head - Nursery School

Play is an important component in the growing up process where we engage our learners in discovery learning through structured play.

Welcome to the Jaffery Academy Mombasa Nursery School

“Our holistic Nursery learning environment gives opportunities for learners to explore and discover their surroundings making it possible for them to acquire independence and build their confidence, academically and socially. Play is an important component in the growing up process where we engage our learners in discovery learning through structured play. It is therapeutic and caters for holistic growth and development.

In class our learners collaboratively solve challenges in groups. This enhances their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Together they strategize and create innovative solutions. Communication is vibrant during learning, as they interact with their peers and teachers. It is a great time to build strong foundations both academically and socially.

We utilize the High Scope and Cornerstones Frameworks which emphasize on active participatory learning. Children are exposed to varied range of hands-on experiences which are carefully planned to promote learners’ specific interests and arouse their curiosity. The provision is expertly tailored to meet the needs and abilities of individual children.”

Thematic Approach​

The Nursery section uses a ‘Thematic Approach to Learning’ which makes teaching and learning more meaningful, aiming to vary instruction ensuring it’s as natural as possible.

Themes compliment and integrate the curriculum connecting all learning areas, this enriches children’s knowledge widening the scope thus actively engaging them as they become self- reliant, self – driven and accommodating to all learning styles.

Join us as we create lifelong learners!

Numeracy

The school aims to give your child a sound start in mathematics. Teachers facilitate math activities where children explore and discover. The teacher’s provision of math play includes varied and exciting hands-on activities and games to help the children from the toddler stage, develop further mathematical awareness.

Using early maths concepts in their daily routine, such as sorting, counting, measuring just to name a few, gives them a jumpstart and a readiness to apply their knowledge in real life situations.

We aim to build confidence with numbers, shapes and materials through well prepared and thought provoking activities.

Building a strong math foundation ensures your child is well prepared for tomorrow’s math world.

Languages

At Jaffery Academy, we ensure the teaching encompasses listening, speaking skills, reading and writing are emphasized in a child friendly manner. Varied teaching and learning strategies are employed including play which is paramount in language development.

The oral skills such as receptive listening and expressive speaking are enhanced by providing students with opportunities to interact with each other and with the adults in the setting ,through news telling, storytelling , show and tell sessions and role plays. We ensure they understand spoken language, putting emphasis on English as an official language, and are able to speak and communicate clearly with others.

Our afternoon club sessions offer variety of engaging and enjoyable activities designed to benefit the children.

The children appreciate new experiences based on their interests. The activities tap their hidden talents, build their confidence and
self-esteem which will enable them thrive in future.

Every new experience encountered during the co-curricular activities opens a window of opportunity, golden discovery moments and lots of smiles.
