Our School: A Place of Learning and Growth

Our schools operates from a rented building, equipped with classrooms and essential facilities, including restrooms. It is the heart of our community, offering a valuable educational experience for our students throughout the school year.

At the helm of our school are dedicated individuals who make this endeavor possible. Among them, we have highly qualified teachers with advanced degrees in their respective subjects, working alongside passionate volunteers who are in the process of training.

In our first classroom, we nurture the development of our youngest learners, aged 2 to 4 years old. Here, we focus on activities that foster psychomotor and emotional growth, in addition to providing a basic introduction to the Arabic language.

For children aged 5 and 6 years old, we offer a comprehensive program that includes reading and writing activities in both Arabic and French, as well as religious teachings and numeracy skills. Our primary aim is to equip these children with a strong foundation for formal primary school when they turn 7.

In our mixed-age group, encompassing children aged 7 to 12 years old, we aim to complement their education from the state school, where they receive only four hours of daily lessons—a shortfall that we are determined to bridge. Our curriculum focuses on foreign language instruction, covering French, English, and some Spanish. We also delve into subjects like mathematics, physics, chemistry, science, and religion, enriching their overall learning experience.

The dedication of our volunteers and the commitment of our teachers create a supportive and nurturing environment for our students. Together, we strive to empower the next generation with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in their academic journey and beyond.

Thank you for being a part of our school community, where every child’s potential is valued and nurtured. Your support and contributions make a meaningful impact on the lives of these young learners.
