Some would say academic is much more important than playing. It may not be entirely wrong but that does not mean your children will get high grades just by facing numerous of books 24/7. As providers and caretakers, adults tend to view the world of children as happy and carefree. After all, kids don’t have jobs to keep or bills to pay, so what could they possibly have to worry about? Parents must keep in mind that stress can affect anyone who feels overwhelmed, including children. For preschoolers, separation from parents can cause anxiety. As children get older, academic and social pressures create stress. So, in Al-Aqil, we provide the most conducive environment for the children to be at ease and provides ample space for children to play. Adults do not like to be crowded. Neither do children.
We provide positive moods for classes for every students to feel welcomed here in Al-Aqil. Exercising has been shown to improve your mood and decrease the feelings of depression, anxiety and stress. Due to that, we emphasize more on the subject of Physical Education. This subject can enhance the students’ mood in class throughout the day. Interestingly, it seems that the children’s mood can be uplifted from exercising, no matter the intensity of the physical activity.
In between classes, the students will get short breaks so they could get their brains to calm down as children at a very young age needs time to interpret what they have learned. Periodic breaks where they stretch, breathe or just getting a change of scenery can revive their body and lift their spirits up to study. They will often recite a variety of surah either it is a du’a or from the al-Quran itself so they could implement the surah in their life.
We also provide extracurricular activities for every students, so they can spend more time doing the things they like to produce positive vibes in their minds. We have varieties of activities such as arts, archery and even taekwondo. We also let them explore more by going on trips to educational centers where children will learn while exploring. This includes going to Museums, Zoos, recreational parks and many more.
We provide the outmost of having a calm classroom environment so we can provide sensory experiences to help children diffuse the stress they may be carrying from the home or being separated from their parents. When the children are calm and engaged in classroom activities, parents are able to provide the nurturing attention they need and ultimately, they will feel a sense of peace.
Send your children to Al-Aqil Preschool to get the best quality of education with the implementation of Islam for your children to produce the future leaders of Islam.
