About Us

Iqra Montessori is a vision of two Montessori teachers, who believe that an authentic Montessori education along with Islamic values is the perfect combination to nourish a young mind and help it grow. After teaching for 10+ years, we felt it was time to combine our experiences and bring forth something extraordinary; A program designed for young children, which will satisfy their natural curiosity about Allah's world through hands-on learning and collaborative play.
