Thank you very much for visiting our school website. We are particularly excited to welcome our visitors and thank you for following up the desire to discover more about our school.
Winka Academy is a highly regarded independent private school that has been providing the ultimate educational experience to over pupils representing various cultural, religious, ethnic and economic backgrounds since 1999.
Winka began as a Kindergarten with a staff of 3 and 3 children. It has since expanded to a primary school. Within its 16years of operation, over 1,000 pupils have enjoyed the Winka experience!. The Kindergarten and Primary Sections are located in South C’s Amboseli Estate and along Muhoho Avenue respectively.
Our unique and trademarked approach to teaching is executed by a qualified team of child-loving self-driven staff. The school environment honors the children’s natural rhythm of energy usage, which is the fuel for the entire creative learning process. We offer individualized learning that is geared at making the children perform well at school but more importantly be able to apply what they have learnt.
Children’s innate love of learning does not escape our teachers, who engage the kids in class projects, encompassing field trips, art, and drama. These projects are an accumulation of learning, topics of study, or the children’s original works. When children are given the opportunity to combine knowledge with art, movement, singing, acting, and working together as a coherent team, another level of experience takes place inside of the children as they meet the challenge of bringing their own personal qualities into a unique expression of their learning.
For our existing parents, thank you so much for being part of the Winka family!. For those who want to know more about our school, we welcome you with open arms and would be delighted to meet with you, learn about you and your child(ren) and have you join our family.

- The aim of any kindergarten is to bring up self-confident and social personalities ready to communicate and make a thoughtful choice. Our pre school program caters for children between the age of 3 and 6 years. We combine the recommended Ministry of Education syllabus for early childhood education with the internationally acclaimed Froebel system. Read More
- The primary section is our miracle project! The initial plan was to run a kindergarten section until enough funds were available to purchase land, built and have a well throughout plan of running a primary school.However, in January 2001 a few parents, brought their children back to school having lacked standard one ‘spaces’ for their children. Our Kindergarten head teacher Mrs Mungai, took the children in and taught both standard one and her pre-unit children in the same class! Read More
- Do your values and those of your child’s school complement those you teach at home? A value is a belief, principle, standard or trait regarded as meaningful, worthwhile, and desirable to a person, a family a school or society. At winka, wehave a loveable desire to teach kids values that are integral in making them unique people in society. We teach them these values through lessons at every opportunity but most importantly by living these values ourselves as their educators. Read More
- Who said parenting was easy! Why shouldn’t it be? The role of parents throughout their children’s life cannot be overemphasized enough. Parent involvement has emerged during the recent years as an important influence on a child’s schooling. Since Parents are a vital key to their child’s success, Winka parents are encouraged to take this responsibility seriously. The most significant benefit is that parents become better teachers of their children at home and use more positive forms of reinforcement. Read More
