Am looking for a good private day primary school within Thika or Juja farthest.

My budget isn't much to talk about but a max of 50k per term will do for a std 1 child.

Any one with an idea?

Try Juja St. Peters. Tembea huko. I know two or three people with kids there. But give them a visit, see the environment and ask for copies of results for the last x years.

Juja Preparatory ni maneno ingine. Pitia hapo uulize fee. Day might be cheaper but boarding huwa more expensive than a parallel degree at a university of your choice. And your (upper primary) kid will be maembe because they do everything for them from laundry to ironing. But then again there are people who prefer their kids to be maembenized! But because it is the same vicinity, pitia.
Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price be so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good returns.

Very very compatible. Don't confuse good private schools with high cost schools (which are not necessarily good).

There are very many nice private schools that charge even much less than 50k per term. Look up the schools that perform well and enquire about their fee and I guarantee you it is less than 50k!

But if you want to take your kid to akina St. Andrews Turi, Mount Kenya Academy, Greensteds International School, Kenton College Preparatory School, Gems etc. so that you can be name dropping, then you will pay for the name through the nose!!!

Avoid weekend. If you are looking for a school, whenever possible, visit on a weekday so that you can see everyone in their "natural habitat".

a class one kid commuting from thika to juja si ni child abuse, why not just take the kid to the nearest school, hata ka si poa, you would rather spend the extra cash on a private teacher at home.

Tell him @maich.

We are talking about Thika area as well, not Karen area. High cost in Thika (likes of Imani school) are categorised as good in Nairobi areasmile .

So yes with 50k i can get a 'good' school. Power to the counties.

Boss, not to sound condescending, i can bet you don't have kids and neither do you understand the current education system.

Some people book schools in Nairobi when a child is bornd'oh!

People drive from Kitengela to drop their children at Makini & Riara ngong road so Juja is a stone throw from Thika town....actually some here at Wazua used to walk those distances in rural primary schools

If you don't secure a good background when a child is in lower primary, don't think you will move him from Gachororo primary to St Andrews Turi when he is in Std 7 or something...he won't cope and basics wills seem advanced to him.

Yes am also thinking of a teacher at home but for a std 1 child that's too much education overload...i prefer afanye homework then outdoor play after school. but will review as time goes

This is torture. Waking a class 1 kid at 4am so that he can prepare to go to school 40km away. Then the morning and evening jam. The parents should just move to a place near the school for the sake of the kid's well being. I support @sitaki that a kid in lower primary should go to a school that's near the home.

I agree too, this habit by the middle-crass(mostly) of traversing the city taking a kindergarten child or even a lower primary kid to another town is not fair to the pupil. I know of a Juja preparatory child now in University that is unable to cope with the system!

I used to teach in an international school where the rich kids' schools are just a stone through away from their homes. The very rich will not spend hours in traffic taking children to/from school.

Just look for some school with good infrastructure in the neighborhood.Dr. Matiang'i has disrupted the system, whatever you call good school might not be after-all.
