In Kenya, kindergarten is 3 years, encompassing what in TX would be preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten. Kids start KG 1 at age 3. Nate turned 3 in January. Thus, when we got back from TX, he started school. He was very, very excited to start school. After a week and 2 days of school, he isn't so excited about it! Every day, he tells me that he misses me. :(
School is 7:30 am - 4 pm. We originally planned on him eating the lunch provided by the school. However, I was worried that he wouldn't eat, that he would have a horrible time because he was hungry, etc. They have tea break at 10 am, when they serve porridge, which he won't eat, so I pack him a snack as well as lunch. They don't have clean drinking water at school, so he has a water bottle that matches his lunchbox. Too bad I didn't think about snack when we were buying this. I think they had small snack containers in the same theme...
|Nate's snack and lunch for tomorrow, minus the sandwich. I'll make that in the morning.|
As with all Kenyan schools, he has a uniform. They have one uniform they wear on Mon-Wed-Fri. On Tue-Thu they have P.E., so they wear a P.E. uniform. It's white. White canvas shoes and white shorts. They come home reddish brown. He loves his school clothes, even the tie. How cute is he?!
|MWF uniform. He has a school badge on the pocket of the shirt now.|
|TTh uniform. He didn't have his shirt yet. It's a red T-shirt with the school badge screen printed on it.|
