Teaching toddlers can be an extremely rewarding undertaking as you can often see the results of your efforts almost immediately *Insya-Allah*. It is well worth the extra efforts involved 😉
Recommended teaching methods for toddler & preschoolers:
Children of this age have:
- A great deal of energy
- A very short attention span
- An ability to learn quickly
- A love of games and play
- Varying levels of coordination
This means that your lessons will need to be the following:
- Safe! (safety first).
- Short (30/45 mins max).
- Kinaesthetic (emphasis placed upon “doing”).
- Interesting, challenging and informative.
- Have plenty of variety.
- Contain lots of the “fun” element.
Practice make perfect 😉 Practice is the last secret.

May Allah swt always bless & help you. Amin~
