Timing

  • Classes are held every Saturday and Sunday, 11 AM – 2:00 PM.
  • Please make sure that you bring your child into the MACE building and sign them in; the habit of dropping children in “drive-by” fashion is not only unacceptable, but also unsafe.
  • Please ensure that your child arrives on time.
  • Students will be placed into an appropriate level based on age and discussion with the teachers.
  • Curriculum of instruction and learning objectives for each level will be provided.
  • Cell phone use during class is a distraction. All students will be asked to turn their cell phones off
  • Zuhr prayer jamaat will start at 2 PM. All parents are encouraged to stay for Zuhr prayer.
  • Please review the code of conduct and discipline policy

Eligibility

  •  The minimum age for a child to be enrolled will be 4 years. This is meant to ensure that children are ready to take advantage of the reading and writing skills in the kindergarten class.
