Our Classes

Maarifa School preschool

Playgroup Class (18 months – 3 years)

Playgroup/Toddlers are inquisitive and exploratory by nature, striving for independence and autonomy, while insatiably curious.  Our Playgroup class is family oriented and therefore the classroom is fitted with kitchen, living room and bedrooms play environment. This eases the transition from home to school.   Arts are emphasised in this class by use of crayons and paints. They learn to be part of a group, interact positively with others, share toys and listen to stories and instructions.

Children at the age of 2.5 years will graduate to a Transition class where they receive additional support to help them be school ready for Kindergarten.
