The Best Foundation Framework



This is the framework that any homeschooling mom can adapt and design a personalized curriculum for their own child/ren aged between 4-6. I shared this with couple of local homeschooling mothers and had a reviewing sessions where I went into the details of each subject/method etc. InshaAllah, sisters, if you want to try it out go ahead and if you want kind of homeschool review session via email or just to share your concerns or ask questions on it, please do not hesitate to get back to me via the comments section inshaAllah.

    Sallaamu alaykum Im oum sakiena from Holland, im, mother from 1 child and shes now 1years old and im now trying to prepare myself properly. I noticed that it has to start all with yourself. And seeing this framework , i can use it already for myself and InshaaAallaah if my girl is ready for it, i can just involve her and ofcourse by her level.

    DjazaakumuLaahu khayraa ukhtaa was Sallaamu alaykum
