St Austins Academy
Nursery and Kindergartens in Nairobi
St Austins Academy was founded in 1970 by Academic Services Limited as part of a programme to establish centres of academic excellence in Kenya. Founded by the first African Director of Education following independence, the Academy was a deliberate attempt to break the segregated educational systems of the day and offer a truly integrated programme.
The original vision has been extended so as to provide a values-based programme for the complex, international world into which our students are entering.
Pre-Primary (Nursery – Kindergarten 2)
The St Austins Academy Pre-Primary caters for children from the age of 2 years. It has its own play area and specialist teachers and, in addition, each Pre-Primary class has a Teaching Assistant.
Primary (Year 1 – Year 6
The Primary curriculum is based on the British National Curriculum, but also includes appropriate material drawn from other National Curricula and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP). Teachers make use of a wide range of textbooks and materials from the UK, local and international sources, as well as the Academy’s own resource material.
The programme is delivered through Skills-based learning. Lessons are student-centred and experiential, and students learn through discovery and participative activities, but with a greater emphasis on the Content and Topic areas.
