Curriculum and Syllabus

Our emphasis in on the development and progress of every individual child irrespective of any learning difficulties that the child might be experiencing.

For those children who have no problems in reaching the normal milestones in learning and development, we will be following the set Tanzanian Syllabus for Pre-primary and Primary. We will use this in close consultation with its Ugandan and Kenyan equivalents to ensure that the kids are at a comparative and competitive level for the region.

For those children experiencing mild to severe difficulties, Individual Learning Profiles (ILP) will be drawn after assessment and agreement with the parents, and in some cases specialists, on the priorities and strategies to assist them to reach their maximum potential. Usually an ILP is based on the severity of the cause of the Learning Disability (LD). Causes might not be known or might be any or several of the broad spectrums of disabilities: Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity (ADHD), Down’s Syndrome, Autism, Pervasive Development Disorder (PDD) and Slow Learner.

For these children, the major areas that will be covered are:

  • Speech and Language development

  • Reading and writing (literary)

  • Numbers in real life (numeracy) for self reliance.

  • Music and Dance

  • Independence training in social skills, hygiene, self care, self-esteem, self-confidence and etiquette

  • Vocational Training in computer skills, tailoring, welding, cookery, hand crafts, art, carpentry and building construction

  • Sports and fitness.

  • Job shadowing for those with good skills.
