Early Childhood Overview
NUI’s Pre-K students engage in a unique and stimulating English/Academics program and in a customized and enriching Religious Studies/Arabic program. In the English/Academics program, the students participate in daily circle time where they sing songs, enjoy story time, are exposed to print through read-alouds, and engage in discussions based on a theme of the week. Students participate in art activities and experiential learning based on thematic units. These activities give the students hands-on experience in the areas of practical life, sensorial development, motor skill development, pre-literacy, math, science, and social studies. In the Religious Studies/Arabic program, the students also participate in circle time and engaging activities that help them learn the Arabic letters and their sounds, basic vocabulary words, numbers and counting in Arabic, simple duaa’s (supplications), short chapters from the Holy Qur’an and stories of the Prophets. The Pre-K program includes indoor/outdoor play in which students’ gross motor and observational skills are developed through group play. Students are taught to practice responsible social and personal behavior during physical activity sessions. A rest/nap time is also scheduled during the day.
