Kaydeena’s mission is to deliver fun Islamic learning for children at foundation
stage of a child’s life and beyond through nurtured learning.
Circle time is delivered through the day at intervals. Here, we reconnect with our
children and reinforce the learning. Each class is set about through exercise, rhyme,
interaction, themes, crafts, games and play.
We do the best we can to develop good manners through basic Islamic duas (supplications),
sharing, awareness of self and others and other tools which enhance positive happy
The home school learning book is used to encourage working on mark making. Here
they can become familiar with letter sounds, shapes and Arabic words, so they are
ready for the bigger classes when they step into Fatima Elizabeth Phrontistery.
Whilst Kaydeena has this in place, we only encourage our children and allow them
to lead how much of it they want to, a page a week at a time. This way, the parents
and the Pre School work together at the child’s own pace. We are also able to connect
with the parents through this, to monitor how the child is doing in class and sometimes
further at home. The stickers in the workbook reinforces the children’s achievements.
What’s more, is that the workbook will soon be purchasable, so you can have one
in your home or gift someone with it.
We believe that our sessions should tailor to our children and we are careful in
building a relationship with them and in turn understanding their personalities
as well as their likes and dislikes. We are confident that this approach means that
we can work alongside the way they like to learn and help to develop their love
for Islam through a method that we can see works for them.
Our group is kept small so the children get the most out of it with the a healthy
child and teacher ratio, whilst they play and learn at the same time. One of the
best things about this at the end of the day, is that we get to speak to each parent
without feeling rushed and limited. And because of this ethos, our spaces are limited
and we do not exceed our capacity.
To get the best out of what Kaydeena has to offer, continue the learning at home
with your child through the craft activities they take home, any duas and rhymes
they learn and the workbook.
