F. Daddy Daycare
Kids, a lot like scientists, are always exploring the world in which they live. While you prepare to enjoy your conference experience we encourage you to let your own little scientist, between the ages of 4-13, embark upon an adventure into our Children’s Program. Fathers are encourage to participate in these events with their children but it is not compulsory
Learning is a language that should be spoken at the level of the child. Our aim is to create a Children’s Program which strikes a balance between your child’s unquenchable thirst for fun and the importance of understanding the religion of Allah. The Being ME Children’s Program “Daddy Daycare” will insha’Allah offer an absolute and all encompassing integration of fun, excitement, and spirituality which will make your conference journey a family fun filled experience.
Our unique approach combines high energy activities with heart melting halaqa’s which transforms our Children’s Program into an amazing resource to satisfy your child’s curiosity and match their energy stores. From activities which build cooperative learning skills to mini-halaqas our Children’s Program offers a fantastic program to keep your little scientist entertained throughout your conference experience.
Registration for the Children’s Program will be taking place on the day of the conference on a first come first serve basis. Parents will be required to do a separate registration for the children who are to participate in this program.
