The dependant variable was the use of school homework as a method of teaching-learning in pre-primary schools while the independent variables were type of school, teachers’ teaching experience and a teachers’ professional qualifications, The study population was pre-primary school teachers in Ruiru Division. Simple random sampling was used to select a sample of 45 pre-primary schools from which 153 teachers were selected for the study. The data was collected through questionnaires which were administered to the teachers. The data was then analyzed using qualitative and quantitative methods where the information obtained was organized into themes and concepts using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS).
