What we do
We are a kindergatten situated in Meru, catering to children below 6 years. We offer Competency Based Curriculum which focuses on growing children holistically; mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
We realize that choosing your child’s school is a very important decision. Our aim is to provide a happy and stimulating environment in which children enjoy learning and are encouraged to do their best. Our priority is that all children develop a confidence and belief in themselves and their abilities: and a pride in their achievements while maintaining a close, co-operative relationship between home and school.
How we Teach

Well Trained Teachers
From Our Principal
In our fast paced ever changing world of increasing uncertainty, we need to instill values in our children that will help inspire and sustain them as they grow and learn. Our promise is to work with parents to nurture children as they gain a firm foundation for future learning, through child-centered activities.
Our School environment provides learning spaces both indoors and outdoors with teachers skilled at providing creative learning areas that are bright and stimulating and captivating for a child. Children learn to share, cooperate, problem solve and use their imagination and creativity.
It is our aim that every child that leaves Rasida does so with confidence and competence with a love of learning and a knowledge that school is a really fun place to be!
