Toddler Program

Teachers in the Toddler Program gently guide our youngest children as they take their first steps towards discovering the world around them and learning. The natural inquisitiveness within a child is nurtured as they explore their curious surroundings under the careful watch of our teachers and caregivers.  Encouraged to let their imaginations loose, children begin to gain self-confidence and independence.   Children take pride in their accomplishments and are enthusiastic about learning.  Learn through play is the primary teaching tool as they discover what learning is all about !!!

  • Do you offer sibling discounts?
    • Yes. If you have more than one child attending Al Huda School or Preschool, you will receive a 20% sibling discount on second or third children attending Al Huda Preschool.
  • Do you offer a referral discount?
    • Yes. If you are an Al Huda Preschool family and successfully refer another new family to Al Huda School or Preschool, you may be eligible to receive a referral discount.
  • Do you require uniforms?
    • Uniforms are required for the four-year-old classes only:
      • Girls: navy blue jumper, white shirt, pants (black/brown/white)
      • Boys: navy blue pants, white shirt
    • For everyone, closed-toe shoes are recommended at all times – please, no sandals. As the Preschoolers go outside most days (weather-permitting), closed-toe shoes will better protect their feet from injury.
