Schools for Children

j0439469As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. Many sisters want to know about schools in Jeddah for children covering subjects like reading, math, science, etc. Wallaahi I don’t have any info to give you right now. ‘Afwaan. My daughter was only 1 and 1/2 years old when we made hijrah so, I did not look into these things. Alhamdulillaah, now she’s old enough to attend school and finding a good one for her is a concern of mine. I’ll keep you updated on my findings In Shaa Allaah.
I do know that children 3 and up can attend tahfeeth schools. Some will take them at 2 and 1/2 if they are potty trained. They are taught to read and write ‘Arabic, short suwar, short ahaadeeth, basic English like A, B, C, 1, 2, 3 and do activities for their age level. They even have Tawheed classes, Maa Shaa Allaah. It’s beautiful to hear the babies say” Ar Rahmaanu ‘alal ‘Arsh Istawaa.”
Here’s some info on the school I attended some time ago: Daarul Haafithaat al ‘Ishreen – Quraan Memorization School for Women & Children
Sisters living in Jeddah – You are very much welcome to share your experiences, give advice related to living here and whatever else you have of benefit.

  1. salaam alaykum

    There is the salafee madrassah, opposite the masjid of shaykh al Banna. The mudeer is Abu ‘Abdillah, a Yemeni brother whose wife teaches at the school. She studied in Yemen and ma sha Allah, her classes are very beneficial. You can go to her class and the children have classes too at the same time, at the second floor in the school. .

    In the Rawdah district there’s another school which is the closest to the haqq after the salafee madrassah. They have all subjects, including Deen, and Quran.
    I will post the name and adress later in sha Allah.

    There’s also the Sunshine School. The mudeera is half American, half Irish. It’s a nice school and from all the schools i’ve seen, these people were the most serious concerning education. The teachers are nice, they love children, and the mudeera too, she’s very good, and very professional.The school itself is beautiful and not too big.

    There are lots of schools in Jeddah, but unfortunatly most schools are really bad, especially international schools…
    Allahul Musta3an, don’t even think about bringing your kids to these schools……..

    wa salam alaykum
