Kids hear instructions in Arabic, learn the alphabet, vocabulary, and common expressions. We structure Arabic language dramatic play, games, arts & crafts, and age-appropriate sport activities.
Children learn better by doing, and by doing things with others to guide them, rather than just being told. We are very hands-on and use differential learning approaches to target all learning styles.
At COTW we aim to develop Islamic awareness, manners, and culture among students, encouraging them to be committed to Islamic values and the ethics of the Prophet Mohammed, PBUH.
