Hear it from our Parents

We understand that as a parent, kindergarten/preschool is a huge deal - it is the start of a child's educational career. Hence, choosing the right one is a decision many parents find very difficult.

In making the decision, you may want to hear what our satisfied parents have to say about our programme.

En. Badurunhisam Mohd Nor, father to Syakirah (6y.o) summarised what he thought about us in one sentence:
All a parent wants for their kids are a place like home where they are nurtured within an Islamic environment, be happy, well fed and ensured security. And Alif Ceria is all that.

En. Muhammad  Fariq Burhan, parent of Muhammad Aqil Hakimi (5yo) wrote:
From its inception in 2010, Tadika Alif Ceria has been a true believer in educating children through playing (fun learning) while at the same time injecting Islamic teaching and values for nurturing the young souls.
Thus far, 2 of my children have since graduated from the programme while the youngest attending the 5 years old programme. From observation, I would say that both of them were well prepared for primary school's teaching and adopting the new environment.
Finally, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all teachers for guiding and being a good influence roles towards my children early development. As I once asked the Principal, "Are all your teachers are as enthusiastic as you?". True to her words then, I can testify that their enthusiasm are infectious right till now.

And we received a long email from Pn. Azah Efal, mom to Syed Hariz (from class of 2012):
Saya ibu kepada Syed Hariz Al Idrus merupakan produk Alif Ceria dari tahun 2011-2012 amat berpuashati dengan hasil yang diusahakan oleh para pendidik di Alif Ceria. Hariz kini merupakan antara pelajar terbaik di kelasnya dan pemegang "Best Readers Award" di Collegiate American School di Dubai bagi sesi 2013 yang berakhir pada 20 Jun 2013 walaupun baru 6 bulan bersekolah.
Saya amat bangga dengan pencapaian ini kerana pada saya Alif Ceria telah berjaya menerapkan konsep "fun school" di minda anak saya sehingga proses pertukaran sekolah ke Dubai menjadi mudah. Dia sentiasa "looking forward" untuk pergi ke sekolah walaupun untuk pertama kali kerana pengalamannya di Alif Ceria. Alhamdulillah. Bacaan dan pemahamannya yang sememangnya sudah lancar sejak di tadika dan saya hanya memberi dorongan di rumah. Selain itu, saya turut terharu dengan semangat dan keyakinan diri Hariz yang saya pasti lahir daripada dorongan guru-guru di Alif Ceria yang mesra kanak-kanak dan sentiasa berusaha mendidik anak-anak dengan nilai-nilai positif.
Pengalaman saya berurusan dengan Teacher Liz, Pengetua Alif Ceria P14B amat mudah dan professional. Untuk proses perpindahan, kami memerlukan laporan daripada Tadika yang menunjukkan prestasi Hariz sepanjang 2 tahun di Alif Ceria telah disediakan oleh beliau dengan terperinci, padat dan pantas secara online. Hanya Allah sahaja yang dapat membalas budi segala bantuan yang memudahkan proses kemasukan Hariz ke International School yang agak merumitkan.
Saya amat bersyukur kerana memilih Alif Ceria Integrated Preschool sebagai asas pendidikan anak saya. Sepanjang persekolahannya saya sentiasa memantau subjek yang dipelajari melalui buku komunikasi yang dibekalkan setiap minggu. Setiap semester pula guru akan memberi "rating" untuk setiap subjek dan dari situ saya memberi dorongan di rumah untuk subjek yang lemah. Alhamdulillah hasil kerjasama guru dan ibubapa telah menunjukkan perubahan keputusan yang ketara. Guru juga mengajar mengikut prestasi atau tahap kebolehan anak-anak dan ini membuatkan mereka lebih fokus dan seronok. Sentiasa ada cabaran baru di tadika. Lawatan 3 kali setahun juga memberi pengalaman sosial dan mengajar anak saya lebih disiplin dalam.menjaga keselamatan sepanjang lawatan.
Terima kasih kepada semua warga pendidik di Alif Ceria dan semestinya Alif Ceria menjadi pilihan saya untuk anak yang kedua dan seterusnya. InshaaAllah.

Guess what we are making?

It's Ocean week and guess what we are making?

A jellyfish in a bottle!

You only need:
  • Recycled plastic grocery bag
  • Thread or strings
  • Recycled plastic water bottle
  • Water and a few drops of blue food colouring
  • Scissors
And here's how to do it:
  1. Cut the handles off the plastic bag so that you have a plain square of plastic.
  2. Now tie a section off with the string to make the jellyfish's head.  
  3. Cut the remainder into strips for the jellyfish's tentacles.
  4. Push the jellyfish into the empty bottle.
  5. Fill the bottle with water, add a few drops of blue food colouring.
  6. Squeeze the bottle or tip it upside down to make the jellyfish swim up and down inside the bottle.
Easy peasy! It's science, it's craft time and it's fun! Try it! ;-)

Well done, Teachers!

Alhamdulillah, just recently, in conjunction with the National 56th Independence Day, we held "1Malaysia Scrap Book Competition" (for Teachers, not kids ya!;-)). The main objective is to assess teachers' understanding in overall concept of integrated learning method used at all Alif Ceria centres.

Other criteria in judging and selecting the winner for the competition are subjects integration in the craft projects, technique used, material usage and project appropriateness according to kids' level/age group. 

Though the teachers admitted that it was very tough to be "right-brainers", the outcomes were superb! Just look at the awesome crafts, MashaAllah! Thumbs up, teachers!

Congratulations to the winners. It was surely a good learning experience in our effort to become better educators, InsyaAllah. May Allah swt reward you greatly for your efforts and pure intentions in nurturing the kids.. Amin Ya Rabbal'alamin... 

p/s We are recruiting new teachers to join our team! If you are a committed Muslimah with passion to nurture young children age 4 to 6 years old, fluent in English, able to read Jawi, creative and independent, come and join us! Email us your resume to alifceria@gmail.com and don't forget to write a simple cover letter stating your interest ya! :-).
