Experiential learning & a curiosity-based approach to development underpins the HMA Pre-Preparatory approach to young learner development.

From sensorial learning to practical activities – we constantly research and apply best practice learning methodologies in and outside of our classrooms.

Our bespoke learning environment inspire the hearts and minds of our young learners and provides us with flexible spaces which makes learning an everyday adventure.



Themes; letters and numbers and basic Islamic content form the foundation of our curriculum and learners develop these foundational skills using our 21st century multi-disciplinary and play based approach to learning. Our fantastic team of qualified educators and amazing assistants ensure that your child is not just a number – but a special individual who is celebrated and welcomed each and every day at the Houghton Muslim Academy.

What we would like to achieve and develop We approach teaching with a child-centered philosophy. We believe that every aspect of a child’s personality, be it cognitive, social, emotional, physical, or spiritual, should be touched or challenged in some way during his or her journey with us.



We offer large sunlit filled classrooms and a dedicated play area to stimulate the imagination of our young learners. From classrooms dedicated to experiential and curiosity-based play, to our creative and secured play area – toddler and pre-school learners at HMA love their space!
