Alimkids first started in 2006 as a playgroup program in USJ Subang Jaya. We first started the playgroup in USJ, and later expanded to Putrajaya, Bangi, Shah Alam, Melaka and even to Kuala Terengganu.
After a few years, we saw a need to provide our concept of play-based learning to more children, thus we founded our Alimkids Playschool and Preschool programs to cater for children ages 4 – 6 years old.
In 2015 we offer the business opportunity through licensing for those who wants to start their own play-based preschool and enrichment centre.
Nurturing the hearts of children to love ALLAH, with exemplary AKHLAQ and enthusiasm to LEARN through play-based approach.
Did You know?
The word “Alim” in Alimkids stands for “Active, Lively, Intelligent, Muslim”
Put them together… It becomes ALIM, which means one with knowledge. Ultimately, our aim is to nurture your child to be one who is full of knowledge, both of this world and hereafter, and is able to use that knowledge for the betterment of the Ummah.
Our story started before Alimkids was “born”. It started when two mothers were looking for a support group to help them in their new motherhood journey, and decided to form “UmmikuSayang” (translated as My Beloved Mother) in 2001.
UmmikuSayang started as an online support group for new mothers to share and learn from each other. Soon after, an online bookstore was launched which catered for the needs for these mothers and their children.
The two mothers, Lily Maznah Muas and Hani Arziana Abdullah left their engineering careers to focus on their business a few years after launching the online bookstore. Their business grew from being a home-based business into a retail outlet in 2006.
It was in the same year they founded Alimkids with the support of a few friends who are passionate in teaching children Islam thru play. They started with the weekend playgroup program at first, and now, Alimkids is available as a business license for other mompreneurs who believe in the same vision and mission as they do.
We use variety of tools to help learners learn, including puzzles, story books, playdoh, blocks, manipulative and sensory toys. Learning is not limited to the classroom, as we have field trips and outdoor activities too.
There are three core programs that we offer at Alimkids:
As the pioneer of Islamic playgroup in Malaysia, our playgroup has undergone a few revisions for improvement, yet staying true to it’s original goal: To provide a fun and nurturing environment for children and parents to play and learn, with emphasis on early tawheed and social & emotional development.
