Pre School

Sankofa Community School offers Crèche, nursery, Kindergarten.


The creche admits pupil between the age of 1.5 ro 2 years. The main focus of crèche is the development of social behavior. Here they learn how to express themselves and their needs, such as learning to ask for things, singing and beginning to talk in both Twi and English. They begin doing interactive activities such as looking at picture books and playing with classmates. 

Nursery (1 and 2)

In nursery one (1) and two (2) we admits children from 2 to 4 years. The focus in nursery is on childcare and the teaching of practical and essential life skills. This includes social behavior by working on cooperation with one another and interacting with classmates by sharing and playing with each other. We emphasize proper toilet and hand washing etiquette. In nursery two (2) the children also begin learning to hold pencils to start writing and tracing. They also begin to learn about independence in order to prepare them for kindergarten. 

Kindergarten (1 and 2)

In KG 1 (ages 4 to 5), the children really focus on learning the letters of the alphabet and numbers. There is more emphasis on getting to know how to write and trace.
In KG 2 (ages 5 to 6), we focus on solidifying the knowledge from KG1 so they have a better understanding in order to prepare for primary. Students are now more aware and can identify letters and numbers with a better understanding of what they mean. By the end of the year they should understand of the use of numbers for mathematics such as addition and subtraction. With letters they will start to understand how to put them together and read small two letter words. The subjects that are introduced include English, mathematics, environmental studies, religion and moral education (RME), and the creative arts.

Primary School

In primary one (1) starts from six years upwards depending on academic performance and willingness, the subjects of focus are English, French, Twi, mathematics, natural science, ICT, creative arts, and RME. Students start implementing experiments into their learning to create an interactive learning experience.

In primary two (2) to six(6) we focus on the same class subjects as primary one(1) but in more depth. There is a more practical application to the knowledge learned as the students focus on more long-term experiments.
