 This curriculum integrates Islamic values and knowledge with secular subjects (math, science, language arts, social studies) this complete and comprehensive course of study for children between the ages of 3-5 can be used at school and at home.


The Social Studies Curriculum in an Islamic school should attempt to provide experiences to the children which will integrate human knowledge and experiences for the purpose of Islamic living and citizenship education. This implies membership in the Islamic, American and other communities and a commitment to work effectively with diverse people (within the framework of Islamic laws and principles) and to understand the differences in cultures, in values and in responses to various social, political and religious issues in the light of the Qur'an and Sunnah. On the preschool level this teaching takes place in a very basic way, focused on direct interactions within the classroom. The preschool is generally the first social experience fur the child outside the home.


The entire program of preschool (nursery and kindergarten) is actually a study in social living. At this stage, emphasis should be placed upon the skills and attitudes of working and playing with each other and upon such Islamic social learning as:
