What Makes NMA Early Years of Education unique in educating your Child?

In the NMA EYE section we prioritize creativity, and self-directed learning to mold young creative thinkers who are problem solvers who will be successful Muslims in steering positive change in the community. With world class facilities in terms of large classrooms, library, a computer lab, art rooms and fully equipped play areas our learners are able to engage in self-directed learning through inquiry-based approach to create a culture of excellence in the school. Our approach in education not only develops learners spiritually and socially but also appreciates the source of Knowledge as ISLAM. Our system in NMA incorporates secular education and Islamic curriculum which makes NMA the best choice for Muslim children. We work on incorporating Islamic values at an early age as they learn the Seerah and Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as the best role model.

The competencies are communication and collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving, imagination and creativity, citizenship, learning to learn, self-efficacy and digital literacy
