Throughout the early years at Al Maha Academy for Girls (AMAG), we believe every girl deserves the best possible start in life and with your support we can enable her to fulfil her full potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. We aim to provide high quality early learning for our girls which incorporates Islamic values, while ensuring they have a secure, safe and happy childhood.

Al Maha Academy for Girls follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

The EYFS curriculum sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. The EYFS supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. This is achieved by ‘Learning Through Play.’ It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.

Al Maha Academy for Girls follows the requirements of the Ministry of Education in the teaching of Arabic, Islamic Studies and Qur’an. Can fun and education go hand in hand? In the Early Years at AMAG they sure can!

Each staff member of Al Maha Academy for Girls is part of a team with a common mission: to help all of our students succeed. We have highly talented, experienced, professional teaching and non-teaching staff members from many different countries.

Our teachers attend regular professional development to ensure that they stay up to date with the best teaching and learning practices.
