Arabic and Quran

Giving children an early exposure to the Arabic language is important, since it is at this early age that they absorb second and third languages with ease. This early exposure will greatly speed their learning of the language in later years. Therefore Arabic words, phrases, songs and prayers are spoken and recited throughout the day with an emphasis on correct pronunciation (Tajweed). In addition oral Arabic lessons are presented by an Arabic and Quran teacher to individual children and small groups. These lessons initially focus on vocabulary building and the introduction of duas, then later progress to memorisation of duas, short surahs and Arabic conversation. When they are ready, children are introduced to Arabic reading and writing using the Montessori approach.
