Welcome to Durham International Nursery & Pre-Prep School
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our new school in Nairobi. By joining us you will become part of a growing global family of schools located across three different continents.
Starting school for the first time is a very important milestone for every child and their parents. At Durham International Nursery & Pre-Prep School we know how special this time is and we recognise that a caring, nurturing, supportive environment is critical to a child’s educational success.
At Durham, we believe that childhood is a time to explore. Our pupils take a passionate interest in the world around them as their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning is ignited through playing, investigating, discovering and creating. Our child-centred approach and broad balanced curriculum will provide a rich variety of opportunities and experiences both in and beyond the classroom for active learning and discovery, engagement and critical thinking.
Teaching and learning at Durham is guided by our core values of respect, kindness and responsibility as children develop a love of lifelong learning. A sense of belonging and self-confidence is fostered through warm positive relationships which support effort and nurture individuality, providing the best possible start in life for all children to fulfil their potential.
A Durham School education prepares children with the skills required to tackle the challenges of the 21st century whilst retaining a sense of the traditional values you would expect from one of the oldest schools in the UK. Our aim is for every child to leave us confident, highly motivated and ready for the opportunities and challenges of Prep School life and beyond.
I look forward to welcoming your child and your family to Durham International Nursery & Pre-Prep School in January 2021.
Mrs Sue Small
