Our Philosophy

The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said “play with your child till 7” and it in various forms of play that the child develops a love and enthusiasm for learning that can last their entire life.

Our intention is to encourage and preserve the natural inclination of our children through a stimulating and beautiful environment. It is for this reason that we chose to adopt a Montessori approach to learning which emphasises the importance of the environment in the child’s understanding of the world. Our approach is child centered, following the interests and development of each individual child and nurturing independence in the child. This lays an excellent foundation for all aspects of life and later education.

The teachers in our school are active learners who seek to embody the prophetic example and are therefore fitting role models. They are facilitators to learning who observe the child and make available to them material appropriate to their stage of development. They are attentive and nourish the child’s curiosity and excitement in their exploration and discovery of the world Parental Partnership Parents are the first teachers and most important people in a child’s life. It is therefore essential to build strong relationships between home and the school which complement one another. An individualised learning experience for a child may only occur if it involves the teacher, the child and the parent.

At ‘Alamiyah we have introductory sessions, coffee mornings and workshops to help parents understand the methods used in the school firsthand and how children benefit from these being incorporated in the home. The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is another aspect of the parent partnership with the school. The PTA is comprised of Parents, school staff and members of the management committee and acts as an important link between parents and the school. It also serves as a support to the school with volunteers and donations and to coordinate essential fundraising and events for the growth and development of the School. We aim to have social events, open days, school performances by the children, fundraisers and other functions which parents will be invited to join in with to build the school community. Parents are therefore encouraged to be actively involved in school life and also to the development of the ‘Alamiyah School through the many opportunities available Insha’Allah.
