Being a Little Caliphs Teacher
What a noble profession this is!
As probably the first formal teacher to a child, kindergarten teachers serve the children development as they start on their journey through the formal education system. By using a good combination of teaching materials, teaching aids and methodologies, kindergarten teachers prepare the core skills that children will need to succeed in formal education system.

For an Islamic-English-Creative kindergarten such as Little Caliphs, it is naturally expected that the teachers demonstrate respect to the practices of Islam such as performing obligatory solat regularly, dressing in accordance to syaria, and other Islamic conducts.

A Teacher is a Guardian
So as you, me, and everybody!
Abdullah ibn Umar reported that he heard the Prophet Muhammad (saws) saying: “Every one of you is a guardian, and responsible for what is in his custody. The ruler is a guardian of his subjects and responsible for them; a husband is a guardian of his family and is responsible for it; a lady is a guardian of her husband’s house and is responsible for it, and a servant is a guardian of his master’s property and is responsible for it. A man is a guardian of his father’s property and is responsible for it so all of you are guardians and responsible for your wards and things under your care).”
