The video above shows the Little Hajj program in 2016. Organized with Little Caliphs, Tabung Haji and the Ministry of Education. The preschoolers’ experience “ibadah Haji” in this program. It is the best time to experience this, in simulation, for this age group.
This program is held once a year. Other Little Caliphs Kindergartens take part too. The preschoolers get to mix with the other preschoolers in an Islamic setting. It is the best avenue for this.
At Little Caliphs Meru in Klang, we also focus on physical activity. We have a lot of outdoor programs for our preschooler’s physical education. There are swimming class, archery, taekwondo, visit the zoo and much more. It is to strengthen the students’ physicality and also exposes them to nature. It is important to let them know to learn from real life than learning only through books and stories. And to enable all this we have a good teacher-student ratio of 1:13.
