|“Each one of you is shepherd. And each one of you will be asked about your flock. A ruler also is a shepherd and he will be asked about his flock. And every man is a shepherd to his family. And a woman is the custodian of her husband’s house and his children. Thus each one of you is shepherd, and each one will be asked about his flock.” [Bukhari and Muslim]Young minds are naturally inquisitive. It is also the age in which learning about Islam becomes compulsory. Little Explorers teaches your child about Islam in a fun and interactive way, by testing their knowledge and helping them to learn the basics of Islam.The ethos of Little Explorers is simple: teach children the beauty of Islam by exploring the world around them, and helping them learn the cornerstones of our religion in the process.Little Explorers uses three avenues to accomplish this: the magazine, various events, and classes.The magazine is especially useful as a teaching aid, and is beautifully designed with bright high-quality graphics and layouts so that each and every issue is fresh and appealing to the eyes. Interactive games strategically placed throughout the magazine means that children see learning as easy and fun – not dull or boring!
Little Explorers breaks down difficult topics into manageable, bite-sized chunks so children are able to interact with the knowledge making it easier for them to understand. Facts are presented in an entertaining way which further encourages children to learn. Each parent wants the best for their child, and what better gift could one give their child than the gift of knowledge – both Islamic and academic.
Little Explorers is designed to run with both current events as well as Islamic events, such as Hajj and Ramadan. Each issue has its own unique feature, and we ensure that the topics chosen are of high interest to our young readers.
Instead of telling children what they should and should not do, Little Explorers shows them what to do and how to do it. From doing wudu, to performing salah, and everything that is needed to be a good Muslim, Little Explorers focuses, teaches and then tests children on their newly found knowledge to ensure that they have understood what they have learnt.
The emphasis is always that learning should be fun. Children learn best when they are enjoying themselves, and our growing subscriber base is a testament to this fact.
Currently, Little Explorers runs an after-school class designed to stimulate the mind through arts and crafts, and a Mom and Tots class to enhance development through playtime, stories and songs. Past events have included: a Reptile Show, Movie Night, and Mother & Daughter Tea Party.
