About Darul Madinah Slough
Darul Madinah: Nurturing Young Minds and Hearts
Darul Madinah is an Ofsted-regulated Nursery and Primary School that passionately believes in fostering a collaborative partnership with parents to nurture and guide children towards their full potential. We recognize the immense significance of parental involvement in a child’s development and strive to create a supportive environment where parents and educators work together as a team.
At Darul Madinah Primary School, we offer a holistic educational experience that encompasses
Daily Hifdh Sessions: Children embark on a journey of memorising Juzz Ammah and embark on memorising other chapters of the Quran.
Islamic Studies: Children immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of Islamic knowledge, learning the blessed 99 names of Allah and engaging in daily Islamic studies lessons.
Tarbiyah: We place a strong emphasis on tarbiyah, instilling in children the love and reverence for Allah and His beloved Prophet. We guide them towards following the commandments of Allah and the Sunnah.
Fun Fridays: Every Friday, our school comes alive with excitement as children participate in engaging hands-on activities, learn nasheeds, and experience the joy of Jummah Salah.
Our dedicated team of qualified teachers and teaching assistants ensures a nurturing and personalised learning environment:
Small Class Sizes: We maintain small class sizes to provide individual attention and foster a sense of community among our students.
Dedicated Staff: Each classroom has its own qualified teacher and teaching assistant, ensuring that every child receives the support they need to thrive.
Our Nursery welcomes children aged 2, 3, and 4, providing flexible options to suit your needs:
Two Session Options: We offer two different sessions to accommodate your schedule: a morning session (8:30 am to 11:30 am) and an afternoon session (11:45 am to 2:45 pm).
Full-Day Care: For those who require full-day care, we provide a nurturing environment where children can learn, play, and grow.
Admission Intakes: We have three admission intakes each year (Autumn, Spring, and Summer), with children typically joining the term after their second or third birthday.
A Seamless Transition to Primary School:
Our children seamlessly transition from our Nursery to the reception class at our Primary School in the academic year they turn 5 years old.
At Darul Madinah, we are committed to providing a nurturing and enriching educational experience that empowers children to become well-rounded individuals, rooted in their faith and prepared to excel in their future endeavors. We believe that education is a collaborative journey, and we welcome you to join us as we partner together to nurture and inspire the next generation.

I joined Darul Madinah in 2018 when we established our Nursery. We initiated the Nursery in response to the high demand for an Islamic-focused early education facility in our local area. We began with a small team of staff members and welcomed 12 children initially. Over the years, our Nursery has grown to its full capacity, reflecting the excellent efforts of our dedicated staff and the strong desire from parents to have their children benefit from the quality education we provide.
I take immense pride in our accomplishments within such a short span of time. We have successfully built an exceptional school that offers outstanding education to numerous young learners. Our aim is to shape them into the future leaders of our generation.
At present, I have the privilege of having two of my own children enrolled at Darul Madinah. My ongoing aspiration is to support the school in delivering top-notch education to all the children within our community. I hope to contribute to the school’s continued growth, with the ultimate goal of establishing a Secondary School in the future.
I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to meet many of you, including parents, caregivers, guardians, students, and staff, in the coming months, In sha Allah. If you have any questions or would like to get in touch with me, please feel free to contact me through the school.
