Curriculum helps children learn faster

Children who start school late in Mombasa, Kwale and Kilifi counties now have a chance to catch up with their agemates. This has been due to a new curriculum which uses learning techniques that enable them to be moved to a class commensurate with their ages. The curriculum used in the Ma-drasa Early Childhood Programme, and supported by the Aga Khan Foundation and partners, enables children older than four to learn faster. It also provides basic training to parents who never went to school, which has enabled them to assist their children with homework.
