Curriculum

We have designed our British Islamic Nursery’s curriculum around the following early-learning principles:

  1.  Every child deserves the best possible start in life.
  2. Children have the fundamental right to be raised as responsible, confident and knowledgeable Muslims.
  3. The Quran and Sunnah provide the best guidance for proper raising, character-building and education.
  4. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances.
  5.  Cultivating strong Islamic values and identity in early learning prepare children to be well balanced and nurtures healthy minds.
  6. Each child deserves the right to learn and progress at his own pace.
  7. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need, to make the most of their abilities and talents as they learn.
  8. Character development is a primary aspect of the overall development during the early year.
  9. Children learn best when they are stimulated, kept interested and when their individual needs are met.
  10. Quality and consistency in early-years teaching is the foundation for good progress thus ensuring that no child gets left behind.
  11. Play is an effective way for children to learn.
  12. Cultural diversity increases students’ understanding of different people an cultures.
  13. The teaching of religious tolerance and cultural equality leads to an improved society.
