Balancing the life based on the Prophet Muhammad.
In general, it still refers to the curriculum established by Dinas Pendidikan.
Because it is built in a home and designed into a five-centers, it becomes a second home for children, eliminates the impression of a class, removes the impression of a monologue, and reduces children’s saturation.
It is aligned to the values of Islam. It is proved by its daily activities done in here. For example, greeting, clapping, songs, stories, prayers, wudhu,, Dhuha prayer, learning environment, etc. As a consequence, children feel the pride of Prophet Muhammad SAW.
It’s enriched by some materials that can balance right and left brain of children. So, it’s not only the left brain but also right brain.
Beside that, it’s enriched by a special curriculum. That is Entrepreneur Kids. In this curriculum, children are supposed to have a willingness to be an entrepreneur as they kid. It is done in their daily activities such as greeting, clapping, singing, story, prayers, praying Dhuha, simulation, outing, learning environment etc. All of these activities are delivered as communicative as possible for them. Therefore, these can build their characters as a Khalifah or a leader because of becoming an entrepreneur is equal with becoming a leader.
However, Entrepreneur Kids curriculum can’t be done maximally for children in Playgroup because of their understanding is limited. But it still can be done for them by doing Dhuha prayer, greeting, clapping, song, outing, and learning environment.
As an illustration, Barack Obama is managed to be a president, Tantowi Yahya is managed to be an aritist and Purdi Chandra is managed to be a entrepreneur. They have dreamed it since they were children. As a result, it entered their subconscious thought. This is one of the reasons why Khalifah arranges Entrepreneur Kids curriculum.
Other Advantages :
We make your children in a good and comfort environment to learn because we minimize threat and prohibition, so that creativity and curiosity of children are maintained. Besides, they come and go cheerfully without any saturation. All of the system done in Khalifah will not limit their creativity at all. (Khalifah reduce wearing uniform for their students because the research proves that the uniform can limit children’s creativity).
We use ‘small class’ where each class is only a dozen of children, so that everyone gets a very intense attention. Parents can get report of their child development periodically. All of the song lyrics we used are very authentic (the one and only in Indonesia), islamic, and easy to remember. Preparation to the primary school entrance is specially designed for students in TK B.
To minimize the confusion, standardized teaching methods have been designed into system (SOP). Every parents are hardly recommended to read a book entitled Muhammad sebagai Pedagang written by Khalifah Team. It has been published and distributed in all of part in Indonesia. There is a selection in entrancing the school for parents and children after registration.

High quality of playing and learning facilities formed from savety material are save in use.
Comfort and savety during learning and teaching process are fully responsibility of the teachers, except outing activity. It should be underlined in doing the outing, parents are supposed to be responsible and the teachers have a duty to accompany them.
During the learning and teaching process, parents wait their children in the waiting area not in the classroom. Besides, parents are supposed to minimize the interaction to their children by directing the children to interact to the teachers only, so that they can socialize with other and also understand the materials.

For example, most of Chinese are success people because they have been familiar with entrepreneur since they were children.
Others unique program
Parents are involved in learning and teaching process perodically, for example, Mother day.
How to give any complaints?
