Holistic education in Kigali

The Maranatha Academy's curriculum is specially chosen to ensure that children have the opportunity to excel at learning within a markedly Christian context. The CREATION Kids curriculum has been developed by a group of expert Christian educators based in the United States. Emphasis is put on holistic education practices, encompassing the academic, physical and spiritual, as well as programs that develop practical and artistic skills while focusing on individual child development through small teacher-student ratio. Moreover the Academy promotes greater parent involvement and participation to create a positive and sustained learning environment between home and school.
TMA subscribes to the idea that a child needs to develop holistically, and a school should provide an environment that facilitates this. The school premises are set up to be age-appropriate, attractive and appealing to the senses of a young child.  Children shall learn through various forms of activity: music, play, exercises to develop motor and other skills, practical life skills and outdoor activity such as tending to the school garden. ​ 
The CREATION Kids curriculum aims to help children lead healthier, happier lives, through the following principles: choice, rest, environment, activity, trust, interpersonal relationships, outlook, and nutrition.
