Our aim is to give excellent education to all.
At The Kidzone Academy, you do not have to be from Freetown to be 'A Kidzone Kid'. We welcome both local and international students to The Kidzone Academy. The school offers warm, pastoral care for all its students.
Here you will find relevant enrollment information for students interested in our Early Childhood Center (Ages 1-5) and primary years (Ages 5-11).
From our Toddler class to stage 6 class, The Kidzone children are encouraged to defy their own limitations, to aspire to excellence, and to go above and beyond to make a real difference to the people and environment around them. Our class size is small enabling each child to receive one-on-one teaching and learning. We also welcome international students from many different countries to our school who play an important role in the cultural enrichment of our community.
