Preamble

We must acknowledge the fact that the education system in Kenya is a rigid and hardy system. On the flip side, if properly managed, it would be very competitive at a global level. However; it has had its challenges especially due to limited resources, implementation and management.

The system requires allocation of resources, facilities and equipment for effective implementation and management.

The 8-4-4 curriculum is largely content based, giving learners an opportunity to gather information and recall through rote learning, without giving them the space to assimilate the content and actualize it in a more practical and hands on approach.

The students are evaluated and their destiny is determined by achievement of grades as opposed to considering other areas of talent development.

The system is also designed to make learners cling to the mindset of being job seekers as opposed to being job creators.

The Government has reviewed the education system and has proposed adopting a new curriculum that is a competence based curriculum.

This is an opportunity for NLA to adopt the new proposed curriculum that equates to the International Global Education systems.

WHY START NLA PRE-SCHOOL AND PRIMARY SCHOOL?

The Nairobi Leadership Academy has taken a differentiated approach to be a game changer.

As it was rightly quoted: Be a game changer because the world is full of players.

NLA has decided to change the game and not allow the game to change NLA

NLA is therefore a game changer and not a game ender.

Progress is impossible without change. Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

When you’ve got over ten thousand schools doing the same thing, why should NLA be the ten thousand and one school?

First we thought about it, secondly believed and thirdly dreamed and finally dared to start NLA Pre School and Primary School.

Phil Libin-CEO Evernote once said that, there are lots of bad reasons to start a company, but there is only one good reason, and I think you know what it is: It is to change the world.

As Nelson Mandela said:  Education is therefore the most powerful weapon with which you can change the world.

NLA has taken that bold step to be different, to inculcate and impart knowledge, skills and attitudes in both boys and girls , to empower them with tools that will change their communities, their country, the continent and ultimately change the world.
