20+ Years of Preparing Students For What’s Ahead

Kabete Junior Academy has a long tradition of educating students and preparing them for what’s ahead; and we continue to prepare the next generation for what’s ahead.

Our History

Our Elephant class is the first class your child will encounter at KJA. We encourage all aspects of development for your child's physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs.

Your child now enters our reception class where they will spend the next three terms developing on going skills from the Giraffe Class. They now start on word reading books, enhance their phonic and writing skills, mathematics , geography, history and science during morning class.

In Lion class we understand that your child's needs differ drastically from being age 2 so we do not combine the classes. As well as centering on the physical, intellectual, emotional and social needs of your child.

‘To love someone is to give them room enough to grow.’

In Giraffe class your child now graduates to the other end of school. They now start on basic phonics using the letters and sounds programme and recognition of numbers, reading and writing skills. 

Hippo Class is KJA's key stage 1 National Curriculum class. All the preparation to enter preparatory school should be completed by the time they finish Hippo Class. They extend further on reading, writing and mathematical skills.
