Our program promotes the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and social growth of the child. The curriculum uses a “hands-on” approach to learning. It is based on the belief that children learn best through "active learning," direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas are encouraged. Multi-sensory activities that enhance the total development of the child are planned around a theme, or as part of an integrated unit.Our Program at Limra Islamic uses the High Scope educational approach to teaching and learning. This approach is research based and child focused which uses a carefully designed process — called "active participatory learning" — to achieve powerful, positive outcomes. The High Scope educational approach is based on the belief that young children build or “construct” their knowledge of the world. They learn best from pursuing their own interests while being actively supported and challenged by adults. The High/Scope Preschool Curriculum not only helps young children excel in language and cognitive learning but also promotes independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving — the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult lifeIt is our goal to make sure that each elementary student receives an equitable, rigorous and relevant educationIn addition to the instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics that is integral for success in life, we are committed to educating the whole child, through engaging experiences and hands-on learning. Further, we attend to the character development of the child through programs that focus on caring, respectful relationships, problem solving, decision making, and conflict resolution. It is our belief that every child deserves to experience excellent teaching and deep learning that meets her/his needs in every classroom, every single day.

After memorizing Limra Islamic Center, the curriculum works backwards through the Quran, with the youngest students committing the short surahs to memory. Most students graduate from middle school with the last four Juzz of the Quran memorized. In addition to memorization, our teachers help students gain an understanding of the surah’s content and meaning in a manner that is appropriate for the student’s grade level.Arabic:Arabic instruction includes a focus on reading, writing, and conversation. Our youngest students begin with the Arabic alphabet, mastering its sounds and common words that begin with each letter. As students get older, they perform skits, have conversations, and read and write stories all in Arabic. By the fourth grade, teachers begin emphasizing students’ reading skills, and reading the Quran becomes an important aspect of instruction. Students learn the rules of Tajweed and apply them as they read Quran. They also learn the meaning of Quranic words. By learning Arabic, the students will develop a framework for understanding the Quran, and will be able to use Arabic as a second/third language.Islamic StudiesIn Islamic Studies, students learn Islamic manners and etiquette, Fiqh, Aqeedah, the Seerah, Quranic studies, Islamic history, and more.
