STUDENT LIFE

At Princeton Preparatory Schools, there are plenty of opportunities for student involvement. Below are some of the activities that make student life at Princeton alive and contextual.

MUSIC PROGRAM

We offer two engaging music programs at Princeton. Our World Music Program is a celebration of great music from around the world. Our Classical Music Studies in our Elementary Program introduces students to the masters of classical music from around the globe, musical genres, composers, and the anatomy of an orchestra.

Beginning from the toddler classroom, children learn how to play the glockenspiel. Casa and elementary students learn how to play the piano and violin.

CULTURAL STUDIES

Cultural studies aim to foster an inquisitive and positive attitude towards other cultures, create tolerance and understanding as well as to nurture enthusiasm for different cultures. Cultural studies are taught at Princeton focusing on both the geographical and cultural aspects of countries and people. We have an onsite village "kijiji" where we teach the Kenyan culture.

ART AT PRINCETON

Art plays a very important role in child development . Artistic activities help children learn other subjects such as reading and math. It also promotes visual, motor and social development. Using art as a vehicle for expression is enriching because children can use it as a communication tool. Our Art Program includes, painting, drawing, art-history and pottery.

SPIRITUAL LIFE

Princeton Preparatory Schools offers your child a caring environment where Christ’s attitude is reflected everywhere. We care about each other, pray for each other, and support each other in prayer and biblical understanding.

Princeton has weekly chapel services for all children toddlers to elementary. The Elementary chapel services begin with praise and worship and are student led. Pre-kindergarten students are instructed in praise, worship, and prayer during chapel. Chapel time aims to motivate and challenge students to continue serving God with all their hearts.

GARDENING

Gardening gives children a chance to learn an important life skill, one that is overlooked in standard school curriculum. It is also a great way to teach environmental awareness by exploring the workings of nature. Dr. Montessori placed a crucial emphasis on Botany and Zoology in the classrooms. The inclusion of nature is critical in Montessori education. Our garden provides the students with a tremendous opportunity to interact with nature, and have hands-on practical experience within outdoor learning spaces, animals, green spaces, and garden. 

We have 3 chickens, 4 pullets, a rooster, 4 bunnies and a beautiful vegetable and flower garden. The children participate in gardening and care for the animals.

NATURE STUDIES

Our students have access to our beautiful natural outdoor space as well as Karura Forest. Our natural surrounding provides the students with a tremendous opportunity to interact with nature, and have hands-on practical experience within outdoor learning spaces, animals, green spaces, and garden.  This opens a magical world of nature to each child. 

Weather permitting, students take trips to Karura Forest in rotation of classrooms. 

PRACTICAL LIFE

As Montessorians we believe education is more than just academics. We aim to nurture not only the intellect, but the development of the whole child in an effort to prepare them for all aspects of life. Practical life in Montessori begins early and is intentionally woven into all our classrooms, and beyond. The activities themselves are intended to give children practice so that they may work toward being independent in everyday living. One wonderful aspect of practical life is how this important work can continue at home.
SWIMMING

SWIMMING CLASS

Montessori swimming classes give children the opportunity to learn how to swim at their own level while offering them opportunities to teach their peers (just like in the classroom). There is a swimming instructor, who facilitates the lesson by providing learning and safety tips, making sure that children are relaxed enough to play and swim in the water, boosting confidence and imparting the three Bs of swimming, namely: balance, breathing and buoyancy.
