SIMBA PREPARATORY SCHOOL
International Early Years Centre of Excellence
MORE ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Simba Preparatory School is an early years school located in Domboshava just outside Harare, Zimbabwe. Simba Preparatory School has been built as a centre for excellence. It offers an early years education that prepares young children for a changing world - teaching them 21st century skills that set the right foundation for them to thrive. Our goal is to help each child realize their potential and their dreams. Every child deserves the best early years education possible.
At Simba Education, we have an approach that looks at a child's overall development. We address their cognitive, socio-emotional and physical development.
Cognitive development is the way a child learns to think, reason, and use language, which are vital to the child’s overall growth and development.
Our school program is based on the EYFS UK curriculum, but each of our lessons are meticulously aligned with the Zimbabwe National Curriculum, to ensure a smooth transition into our students' further education. We place a special emphasis on literacy, numeracy and life skills which form the foundation of a child's learning.
Socio-emotional development includes the child’s experience, expression, and management of emotions and the ability to establish positive and rewarding relationships with others (Cohen and others 2005). It is how they express themselves and how they relate with others.
During their formative years, children learn through play. Playing helps young children's brains to develop and for their language and communication skills to mature. We use a rotational approach so learners can build their personal attributes and interact with others in the classroom.
HEALTH & NUTRITION
At our school, we work with MoFitness to develop our students' gross motor skills.
In order to grow and to meet their development milestones, children need a strong health and nutrition program. We have a vegetable garden that informs our daily menu. Our students receive a nutritious morning snack and lunch.
Our teachers plan and access their lessons on the Simba platform using their tablet.
At Simba Preparatory School, we are tech driven. We use the Simba platform to track our students' performance so we can focus on the areas where they need more attention. We also use animated programs to teach songs and rhymes, extend our students' vocabulary, and to reinforce key concepts.
