Why we do it?

What could be more rewarding than watching a little one fall in love with school?

At Happy Trails we love to see kids fall in love with leaning. Our focus is on developing the child as a whole and creating the best possible foundation for each child in a safe, loving and stimulating environment.

How we do it?

We use a blend of Montessori and Early Years Foundation Stage or EYFS for our instruction. We believe in exploration, creativity, flexibility and catering education to the needs of each child in order to create a lifelong love of learning.

To give time and attention to each child we maintain low teacher to student ratios at one teacher to five children.

We currently have 4 age groups:

  • Baby Class – 18 months to 2 years
  • Toddler Class – 2 years to 3 years
  • Pre-Reception – 3 years to 4 years
  • Reception – 4 years to 5 years

We Accept 10-15 children for each class.

School fees can be paid in two installments with the first payment due at the beginning of the term and the other half due six weeks into the term.

Fees are as follows:

  • Baby Class: K 300,000 per term
  • Toddler Class: K 315,000 per term
  • Pre-Reception: K 330,000 per term
  • Reception: K 345,000 per term

A Once off fee of K 20,000 is required for new enrollments.
