Kuwaiti parliament and the government have approved a proposal to teach the Holy Quran at kindergardens, Al Rai newspaper has reported.
The initiator of the proposal MP Mohammed Haif explained that teaching the holy book at such an early stage will help groom children observing Islamic precepts.
The move will also generate jobs for Islamic education teachers and “diversify” the kindergarden studies, according to the MP.
“The kindergarten is one of the primary educational stages to raise the child. In order to build a generation adhering to genuine Islamic values and teachings at an early age, it is necessary to introduce the subject of the Holy Quran into the curricula of the kindergartens,” the lawmaker was quoted as saying.
“Reciting and memorising the Quran at an early age helps boost children’s mental faculties including memorisation,” he added.
