Open Day and 2019 Registration Day

Dear Moms & Dads,

If you are looking for a playschool or preschool where:

+ Your child has freedom of movement most of the time. Whether he is playing, working with material or interacting with other children, he is NOT expected to sit quietly for long periods of time.

+ Your child is engaged in activities, games or lessons, instead of wandering around aimlessly or loss in his individual thoughts in his own assigned seat.

+ Teachers work with individual children and in small groups of 5-10 children during the day. Level of student-teacher engagement is HIGH.

+ Your child learns early reading and math skills in the context of everyday experiences. Learning was done through real-life activities like cooking, baking, planting, meal serving, and self-care techniques.

+ Curriculum is adaptable to those who are ahead as well as those who need additional help. Teachers recognize that children’s different background and experiences mean that they do not learn the same things at the same time in the same way.

+ Your special-needs child are able to enjoy preschool activities like their typical peers, participating in Sports Day, school excursion, Performing Arts Day. These improve social and language skills.

+ Continuous guidance from early childhood teachers, special need teachers , occupational therapists and speech therapist, and peer-to-peer mentorship under one roof.

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, come and check us out. It’s going to be a 3 hours well-invested for your child’s first formative years, insha Allah.

Special Needs Children

With the rise in the number of kids with learning difficulties, what can we, as the member of the community do to help?

An article in Utusan Online explains in detail.

“Bukan sesuatu yang mustahil bagi kanak-kanak atau individu bermasalah seperti ini untuk menjalani kehidupan normal seperti orang lain. Mereka berupaya belajar, berpasangan dan bekerjaya. Apa yang mereka perlukan ialah sokongan semua pihak dan pendekatan yang khusus dengan kaedah strategik dalam membimbing dan mendidik mereka sehingga berjaya.”

TIM Preschool started our Special Learning Needs program in 2013 to:

  • Help our special learning needs kids acquire skills so they can live independently in the community.
  • Increase awareness among the typical kids and the society as a whole.

Please pray and support our cause. Don’t forget to spread the word!

Zuhur Prayer

The congregational Zuhur prayer is guided by our own Ustaz after lunch everyday. Both typical and special kids with established sitting tolerance and ability to follow instructions take part in this session.

They learn about the fiqh of ablution and prayer, recitation of verses from the Quran, du’a and zikir. This whole session is a good break from the daily formal lessons, a break where they look forward to the most!

We have this as part of our Full Day program which ends at 3.00pm everyday.

Autism Movement Therapy

We started our Autism Movement Therapy (AMT) session in 2015. These sessions involve music, dance moves and loads of fun!

“There’s a bridge between the left and right hemisphere that transmits information. What happens with our kids is that the transmission of the information is not going through. Dance and music forces the brain to reorganize itself. Through the music and the movement the child is being asked to hear the music, process the sequence and the patterns, and then dance, it takes both sides of the brain to dance.“

Joanne Lara, founder of Autism Movement Therapy

We are a Reggio-inspired school, where the organization of the physical environment is important to the program, and is often referred to as the child’s “third teacher”.

All the three floors are wide-open spaces and awash with natural light. The walls, floors and ceilings are in muted colours, so the attention is drawn to the children’s work and transcriptions of their discussion.

Check out our Facebook and Instagram for more photos of the school. Even better, visit us to see for yourself 😉
