Junior Kindergarten

As Salamu Alaykum,

I feel honoured and privileged to teach at Safa and Marwa Islamic School as a kindergarten teacher. This year we are concentrating upon a Montessori based learning Insha Allah. We are blessed to have two teachers in our classroom.

i am a certified MACTE (Montessori) teacher and have been teaching for the past 9 years  in different parts of the world Allahumdulillah . Our Arabic Teacher Doha , who is also an E.A for our classroom is  a very experienced and a humble soul Masha Allah!

Working as a guide and facilitator, the Montessori teacher creates a well prepared Montessori environment and an atmosphere of learning and inquisitiveness designed to move from one activity and level to the next. A Montessori teacher often steps back while the children are working, allowing them to learn from their own discoveries and draw their own conclusions. Dr.Montessori believed that the teacher should focus on the child as a person rather than on the daily lesson plans. Although she plans  daily lessons for each child, she is alert to the changes in the child's interest, progress, mood, and behavior. The Montessori materials in the classroom teach children abstract ideas in a concrete manner.

The primary program is divided into five main areas:

1) Practical life 

2) Sensorial

3) Cultural


5) Mathematics

We  believe that every child is different and develop at their own pace and according to their own needs. capable and could do wonders  After several years that I have spent as an educator,including six years in Canada and above all getting a Montessori training I  have realized  that the best way to teach a child is to "follow the child" and not make them rush . As soon as the child finds something that interests them, they lose their instability and learn to concentrate-  Maria Montessori. 

We will Insha Allah work together as a team and accomplish much more.  We seek to have close relationships with parents in order to support and aid the child's development.

May Allah make this a successful year for all of us !
