Children are our future and our wealth.

The quality of tomorrows world, even if its survival will be determined by the well being, safety and

Development of our Children today. (i.y.c. Jhb)

I hope many of you will read these few words and stop and think for a while. I would like to concentrate on the safety of our Children. We live in a country where car traffic accidents are an everyday occurrence and yet parents fail to ensure the safety of their children in the car. Children are left to stand in the front and back seats of the car while travelling, should your car, even if going slowly have to apply brakes suddenly, children who are not strapped in could suffer life altering consequences.

It is with in mind that we start a car safety drive at K.J.A where you as parents take necessary measures to make sure your children are strapped into their seats while travellling.

We at KJA value your child's life and would have peace of mind knowing your children are travelling to school safely. Maybe this drive would rub off on the rest of Kenya and we could start a new generation of Safety Concious Children.




Children acquire language when they are read to and spoken to.

A child’s first acquaintance with books and stories is through their parents and it is never too early to begin

Books are the child’s first introduction to simple characters and events outside his/her world.

Books are the child’s first introduction to art. Patterns, pictures textures and illustrations are all depicted in the story. This is the beginning of visual literacy.

A book is a child’s first step to literacy where they begin to learn that symbols represent words and these symbols are read from left to right and top to bottom.

A child who is read to develops a verbal language. Stories introduce children to people, words and experiences.

To foster a love of reading in a child is invaluable. It should always be a happy and enjoyable experience .Children who are read to have a huge advantage.
