Alhumdullilah, we are very pleased to announce that we have finally found our Muslim Montessori Certified 69 teacher. We are truly blessed and our prayers have been answered by our Rub Al Aalameen.  We cannot be thankful enough to all of our current parents for always remembering us in their prayers and trusting us with their child’s future. Mehreen Alvi is 69 certified lower elementary teacher and is completing her 9-12 training this June MashaAllah. She has tremendous amount of experience and expertise with Montessori curriculum. We are very happy she has decided to join us and she too has expressed similar feelings as she has always worked for non-Islamic schools and is looking forward to working in an Islamic environment and our children.

We will set up our 69 environment during the summer InshaAllah and we all are very excited and happy to welcome a new staff member at Ilm and we hope and pray that she too will soon become a part of our small family.
Please continue to make dua for us, that this new endeavor is filled with barakah and be a source of continuity of knowledge of deen and duniya for our children InshaAllah.
