Thank you for taking an interest in the Early Years Playgroup. The playgroup is being setup to introduce children to the Masjid environment and to prepare them with the basic knowledge required later on to progress on to Quran studies.
The group will be run by experienced staff members who are enhanced DBS cleared and have come from a state education background. We will also have teachers from our Maktab classes preparing the basic study materials for our playgroup. There will be no expectation from the students to actively learn what is taught in the playgroup, however we would encourage parents to do so to take full advantage of this service.
The group will initially cater for a maximum of 15 students with a 1 to 5 ratio of staffing and we would increase this depending on demand. It will most likely be on Saturday mornings between 10am and 12pm starting after the October half term holidays.
The Playgroup is non-profit however we do need to charge nominal fees to cover the running costs of this service such as games, fruits and refreshments.
In order to qualify for a place, your child must be able to use the toilets with minimal aid, if they are using nappies, then I’m afraid we cannot accept them.
If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible as we expect space to fill up very quickly.
