Our Children, Our Future

ECCE from Islamic Perspective

“Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave”

The younger the person the better he or she will be in learning or absorbing something as young children can learn anything. Thus, the most suitable period and condition for success in seeking knowledge is during the time between the birth and distinction.  As Hassan (1998) states:

The first stage in a child’s education is the period between birth and tamyiz (distinction/discrimination), which is approximately five years and at this stage, the child is like a dry sponge, ready to absorb and moisture it come across. (p. 35)
