Shamba means farm, symbolising growth, fertile minds and endless possibilities. This is a budding learning group where young minds explore, discover and evolve to embrace their surrounding. Learning at Shamba la Shela includes donkey riding, swimming, yoga, gardening, weaving, cooking amongst other activities embedded into the curriculum. It is a one of a kind island learning experience for our young explorers.
We now have a group of fifty children from kindergarten to grade seven.
“If we want our children to move mountains, we first have to let them get out of their chairs.” At Shamba la Shela we believe in playing as much as we believe in learning, they are the same thing actually.
“Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best.” It's all about relationships. Shamba la Shela is where the three year-olds and the seventh graders have conversations and lunch together.
We can modify nursery rhymes and move classes to fit what we are exploring. Any time any day. Our teachers are our shepherds that guide our curiosity instead of purely strapping us to classrooms and textbooks.
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults.” Early childhood education is the most underrated tool of addressing our marginalised reality. We are taking a head start in shaping the game.
