Welcome to Aga Khan Nursery and Primary School (AKNPS)

Welcome to the Aga Khan Nursery and Primary School. Our aim is to provide our students with well-rounded education which allows children to discover and nurture their creativity and develop into independent critical thinkers with a love for lifelong learning.

The Aga Khan Nursery and Primary School offers an engaging, quality curriculum through the Pre-School Programme (ages 2-3) and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) Kindergarten 1 to Grade 6 (ages 3-12). The Primary School is seeking authorization from IBO for the PYP program, whose philosophy provides a framework for meeting the demands of educating our students to meet the challenges of the 21st century by supporting their growth as productive, insightful, responsible and compassionate citizens in our global society. It focuses on developing independent, skilled learners through inquiry-based instruction that reflects a unique global perspective. Even though our curriculum is based on the IB-PYP, compatibility has been ensured with the National curriculum of Tanzania and the Tanzanian culture. AKNPS occupies a spacious, well maintained campus which includes facilities for indoor and outdoor sports, art, music and ICT.

Henry Ford once said that "Coming together is a beginning, Keeping together is progress, Working together is success." At AKNPS we strongly believe that education is a 3-way process where a partnership between Students, Teachers and Parents each play an equally important role.
