Parents, school administrators and children have to work together for the comprehensive physical development of children, educationists say. In building a wholesome all around child, compassion, love integrity, cleanliness and above all discipline play key roles in achieving this goal.
“As children grow, at Kampala Parents’ School, we emphasize three important domains, these are: Affective, Cognitive and Psycho-social stage. Affective deals with spiritual emotions. Cognitive is to do with mental process including how people think, perceive, remember and learn. Psycho-social stage is all about developing muscles. Learning is developed by physical skills such as movement, coordination and manipulation.
“In order for the mentioned domains to be realized, the triangular working relationship has to be focused. The parents, the staff and children have to work together to achieve the required goals. Furthermore, in building a wholesome all around child, compassion, love integrity, cleanliness and above all discipline. We believe that discipline is the key to success. We train our children to observe all of them.
“At Kampala Parents’ School, we believe that learning through play works because children are more likely to remember lessons if they enjoy them, and they are more likely to show enthusiasm for learning if they have fun at school.
“For example, if children learn about the planets by singing a fun song about them, they will likely remember that song and the information they learned. Ongoing research also shows that playful teachers can increase their students’ long-term academic performance.
Our highly trained teachers collaborate with parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners. Through ongoing communication, parents and teachers can help each child become fully prepared for and excited about kindergarten.
Our approach is grounded in accepted research on how children learn best. Children experience the deepest, most genuine learning through play and fun activities lovingly guided by highly trained teachers.
Kampala Parents’ School is co-led by an education director who work together with teachers to make sure every family has a wonderful experience. This distinctive model also ensures children are known and appreciated for their individual gifts and personalities.
Young children who learn through play are more capable of making their own decisions, advocating for themselves and using creativity to solve problems as they grow. During play, children link old thoughts with new, build new experiences and access knowledge.”
