Our pedagogical focus has an emphasis on student-centered learning. It represents our ambitions and dreams for Pearl of Africa to be a unique and creative primary school. We strive to be a national school with an international approach towards participatory learning.

The strategies and skills teachers use to impart content of subjects to students are child -centered at all times. Teachers follow the guidelines of the curriculum, but the needs and abilities of the students are always the starting point of educational planning. Each student has his individual targets when it comes to each area of development:

  • Intellectual Development
  • Social Development
  • Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development
