On Thursday 15th March 2018, a Rabbi, an Imam and a Vicar visited 45 children at Alyth Kindergarten (aged between 2-4 years old):  Imam Yusuf Rawat (Hendon Mosque and Islamic Centre), Rabbi Dov Kaplan (Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue) and Revd. Robin Sims-Williams (All Saints Childs Hill). Steve Derby the Director of Interfaith Matters co-ordinated and attended the visit.

“Children are never too young to learn about mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths. The children are learning to respect and celebrate each other’s differences and develop an understanding of diversity through people in the wider world”. Tor Alter, Head Teacher

The Circle Time explored what it means to be different and how we can look after each other regardless of different faiths. The children heard about each of the Faith Leaders traditions and customs and were shown items relating to their religion e.g. a Muslim prayer mat and Qur’an from Imam Yusuf.

“The interfaith talk was a great way to introduce the children to other religions and traditions, making them feel comfortable and familiar with people from different backgrounds and creating a sense of ‘togetherness, peace, harmony and respect.” Vivi Ben-David, Teacher.
