Curriculum overview

At Creative Hearts Preschool, we are committed to providing a nurturing and enriching educational experience for children aged 1.5 to 5 years old, guided by the timeless wisdom of Imam Al-Ghazali and infused with Islamic values and principles.

1. Al-Ghazali Curriculum Integration:

Our curriculum is inspired by the teachings of Imam Al-Ghazali, a renowned Islamic scholar whose wisdom continues to resonate across generations. Through the Al-Ghazali curriculum, children are exposed to age-appropriate lessons and stories that instill virtues such as kindness, gratitude, honesty, and compassion.

2. Islamic Studies:

From a young age, children are introduced to the fundamentals of Islam through engaging stories, songs, and activities. They learn about Allah, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Quranic stories, and the importance of kindness, respect, and love for others, laying a strong foundation for their spiritual growth.

3. Arabic Language and Quranic Awareness:

Children are exposed to the Arabic language through simple phrases, songs, and games, fostering familiarity with the language and preparing them for future Quranic studies. They also develop an awareness of the Quran and its significance in their lives, instilling a sense of reverence and connection to their faith.

4. Play-Based Learning:

Play is at the heart of our curriculum as it provides children with opportunities to explore, create, and learn in a fun and engaging manner. Through play-based activities infused with Islamic values, children develop social skills, problem-solving abilities, and a love for learning.

5. Character Development:

Character education is woven into every aspect of our curriculum, with a focus on cultivating virtues such as honesty, integrity, empathy, and resilience. Children learn through modeling, storytelling, and guided discussions, empowering them to become compassionate and ethical individuals.

6. Hands-On Exploration and Inquiry:

Children engage in hands-on activities and inquiry-based learning experiences that stimulate their curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills. From sensory exploration and art projects to science experiments and nature walks, children discover the wonders of the world around them through active exploration.

7. Cultural Appreciation and Global Awareness:

We celebrate diversity and promote cultural appreciation by exposing children to different cultures, traditions, and customs from around the world. Through multicultural literature, music, and art, children develop respect and empathy for people of diverse backgrounds and learn to appreciate the richness of human diversity.

8. Assessment for Growth and Development:

Our assessment practices focus on observing children’s progress and development in various domains, including cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development. Teachers use a variety of assessment tools, including observations, checklists, and portfolios, to track children’s growth and tailor instruction to meet their individual needs.

Through our holistic and Al-Ghazali-inspired curriculum, Creative Hearts Preschool strives to nurture little hearts and minds, fostering a deep love for Islam, a strong sense of character and morality, and a lifelong commitment to learning and growth.

Questions and answers

What is the tuition policy for extended leaves or travel?

Our leave of absence policy covers situations where families need to take extended leaves. Please refer to our Leave of Absence Policy for detailed information. In summary, when a leave of absence is taken for two weeks or more, tuition is reduced to 50%, provided that the school is notified in advance with a minimum of two weeks' notice or one month's notice. Failure to provide adequate notice may result in full tuition for the subsequent month.

Is there a minimum enrollment requirement for preschool?

Yes, the minimum enrollment requirement is three days for part-time enrollment. Our part-time options are available for either nine to one or nine to three, with a minimum of three days per week considered part-time enrollment.

Do you provide hot meals for children?

Currently, we do not offer hot meals. However, we provide morning snacks. Parents are encouraged to pack lunch for their children, especially if they have dietary preferences or restrictions. While we have a menu for morning snacks, we do not offer substitutions.

How do you address challenging behavior in children?

At Creative Hearts, we approach challenging behavior with love, compassion, and understanding. We do not believe in punishment or timeouts. Instead, children are redirected and offered a "thinking spot" within the classroom where they can calm themselves with quiet activities. If a pattern of behavior persists, parents are notified, and a meeting is arranged. Bullying is taken seriously, and our teachers are trained to address it with kindness and understanding, involving parents as necessary. We prioritize problem-solving and communication over punitive measures.
