Kampala Community International Preschool is a progressive early child development center for children ages 18 months-5 years. Our center emphasizes the importance of learning through a play-based, child-centered curriculum. At KCIP, we see each child as an individual. The diverse community at our center allows children to gain a sense of international awareness. We believe that children learn best in an environment that is nurturing, secure and establishes mutual understanding and respect. Our teachers make it their mission to provide children with quality education that is enabling and encouraging.
KCIP accepts children ages 18 months-5 years. Our programs acknowledge each child as a unique individual. Each program is influenced by research that confirms a play-based and child-centered approach to learning is essential for children to reach their full potential. At KCIP, we believe that children learn best in an environment that is nurturing, secure and establishes mutual understanding and respect. Within each program, teachers adhere to this belief and work hard to establish relationships with children and their families that reflect mutual understanding and respect.
Our curriculum is centered around a play-based, child-centered approach that focuses on six essential areas of learning: social and emotional development, math and cognition, language and literacy, creative development, physical development and cultural awareness. The curriculum is based on the core values, principles, and learning objectives of both the English National Curriculum Early Years Foundation Stages and the Early Learning Standards in the US. We have uniquely fused aspects from both curricula with influences from The Reggio Emilia Approach.
