At Kabete Junior Academy, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, however, a number of our teachers are Montessori trained and we incorporate certain aspects of the Montessori method in our teaching as well. Our nursery is a stimulating and nurturing environment, which helps the children develop into confident and independent learners.
As well as Literacy and Numeracy, our morning sessions are made up of science, topic, Physical education (P.E) and swimming. We have an outdoor heated swimming pool, which is run by professional swimming instructors who are qualified lifeguards.
The children also have weekly music, yoga, horse-riding, which are taught by specialist teachers. These activities stimulate the children’s imagination and further their creative and physical abilities. They are also taught practical life exercises that encourage independence.
In the afternoons, the children enjoy participating in a variety of fun activities, such as football, cookery, art therapy, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and art and crafts.
During each term, we also organise a variety of special events. Our annual events include a Sports Day, Swimming Gala, a visit from Santa, an Easter Egg Hunt, and a Hallowe'en dress up, as well as a number of charity events throughout the course of the year.
