ISLAMIC EDUCATION

Tauheed – The concept of oneness is the fundamental basis of Islamic education, and it incorporates the unity of God, creation, humanity and knowledge. Therefore we believe that pursuing knowledge is a religious duty. The goal of Islamic education is to produce students who see themselves as global citizens and who strive for excellence. We will encourage our students to pursue knowledge in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and world languages.

BEYOND THE BOOKS

MECCA provides a structured environment that integrates an academically rigorous curriculum with socially developed activities to equip all students for lifelong academic success. Developmentally appropriate expectations are placed on students of all ages.

We believe in each child’s ability to develop her/his full potential and to succeed in school and life. Students graduating from MECCA will enter kindergarten excelling and having mastered preschool concepts, while school age children will be encouraged to strive for continual academic excellence.

Infant

MECCA provides a nurturing and safe environment for all infants; a second home away from home. MECCA provides care for infants ages 6 weeks through 13 months. Infants need to develop a trusting relationship with their caregiver which establishes a bond, allowing them to develop at their own pace.

At MECCA, infant caregivers meet each child’s individual needs while assisting with the skills needed to develop cognitive, language, and social skills. Infants are encouraged to participate in tummy time to strengthen muscles needed for gross motor development. Infants are talked to constantly throughout their day and read stories to develop language skills (no baby talk), and are given opportunities to socialize with other friends in their age group. Infants are introduced to the Arabic language through songs and finger-play.

MECCA caregivers are trained to understand that infant cries are their primary way of communication, attend to every cry to assist infants develop trust and ensure that every need is met. Our infant program is founded on a partnership with families and is a continuation of home where learning and development occur naturally.

MECCA’s infant caregivers are knowledgeable in child development and track infant growth through assessments and evaluations. As our most vulnerable age group, our infants are located near the Administration and monitored closely throughout each day. We are delighted to share in your child’s journey through their most delicate stage of development.
