Welcome to the first Islamic Nature-Based Preschool!
IDRISSI Nature-Based Preschool follows the mandated Kindergarten curriculum in an innovative nature-based outdoor and indoor play learning concept with Islamic principles of learning.
We are different! We are unique! We offer wonderful adventures to our children with bookless corner-based learning concept which focus on skills-centric education to produce socioemotional ready generation. Every corner has its own specialty that make learning more vibrant and fuel their natural wonders. At IDRISSI Nature-Based Preschool, we also welcome the special needs children to be part of our family as we provide a passionate Personal Learning Assistant (PLA) to support better learning experience one to one.
An outdoor (garden) corner where students explore nature-related skills and concepts. This corner gives students an opportunity to learn about the outdoor environment in a safe and pleasant place. Students can learn new skills, have fun playing while developing self-confidence and teamwork through various activities such as tending to plants and growing their own food together.
Most of our students enjoy being outdoors and love digging in the soil, getting dirty, creating things and watching plants grow. They also harvest the lettuce, carrots, and herbs they grow and turn them into tasty nutrient-rich snacks of goodness for their growing body.
MAKE & TAKE CORNER
We are the first preschool in Malaysia adopting this concept – an art space where students can freely experiment (and get messy!) with a variety of art mediums and techniques such as finger painting, colour mixing, building three-dimensional objects and lots more. The corner also provides a variety of sensory materials for the students to create and work with, such as homemade playdough or silly putty.
Play lets your children pick up a language in a fun way they have never been exposed to. In this corner, they will learn how to read syllables and expand their vocabulary in Bahasa through various mediums of play such as puppet, clay and more. As a result, students will be able to learn lightheartedly yet able to speak confidently using new vocabulary and concepts.
Planting these happy seeds in learning will encourage children to grow up having the spirit of lifelong learning in them.
Circle Time is a morning ritual at IDRISSI Nature-Based Preschool, students share their thoughts and feelings, and are briefed about the day’s plan and activities. It is a great way for our students to experience a sense of community and belonging with each other while enhancing their social skills and improving their attention span.
When literacy class is a great mixture of phonics, storytelling, songs, blending and segmenting, then you have to know that you are in IDRISSI Nature-Based Preschool. There’s also a lot of drama as well as Show and Tell time.
At the Literacy Corner, students not only improve their conversation in English, they also learn how to take turn to speak, respect others, improve their listening skills and gain more self-confidence. IDRISSI Nature-Based Preschool utilises the widely known Jolly Phonics syllabus as an aid to teach our students pronunciation using fun and energetic methods.
In this corner we use a lot of creative media like sand, water, imaginative play, dough and even nature to let our students learn about the basic skills in math like numbers, sorting shapes, addition, subtraction, fraction, creating patterns, solving simple monetary problem and so much more!
In Numeracy Corner, we let our children watch the plants grow and they measure their own plants using simple items such as blocks, rocks or even sticks!
