School Profile

We treasure our culture

At Kissyfur we recognize that children are very special people with unique personalities and individual needs. Communication is a vital part of our relationship with parents. We ask parents to share information about their child/children to allow teachers in planning each day to meet the needs of each family.

Philosophy

Role play facilitates learning

The Kissyfur programme is based on the “PLAY-WAY” method of pre-school education that is advocated for by the International and Ugandan National Curriculum Development Association. Children are encouraged to develop all aspects of their learning potential in a stimulating environment. Learners are not forced to participate or contribute. Any form of punishment are never used at Kissyfur. Our disciplinary policy is based on ‘time-out’. Children are encouraged to participate in the school activities and to develop a natural love for learning. Pre-reading, pre-writing and pre-maths activities are introduced as fun activities, designed to stimulate the children’s interest in learning.
