QLM Learning offers distance learning support programs to help your child thrive in a safe Islamic environment
A Safe Islamic Learning Environment For Your Child
Who We Are
QLM Learning was founded by Br. Omar Abdul Fatah, a BC certified teacher, TEDx speaker, local khateeb, and student of knowledge. Our organization aims to offer quality homeschooling support programs driven by Islamic principles.
We recognize the imperative need for public school alternatives in the Lower Mainland and work hard to provide that. Our programs are run out of various Mosques and offer academic support to students as well as numerous other services (see below for details). QLM Learning is not an independent school, but a learning centre that offers daily in-person support to enrolled distance learners.
How it Works
1) Students first register with a Provincial Online Learning School (POLS), such as the Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning (SAIL). This will ensure that your child will receive Ministry recognized credits while working their way towards graduation upon successful completion of each course. Because QLM Learning is not an independent school, it cannot issue credits. For a complete list of POLS, click here.
2) Once students are registered with a POLS, they register with us and begin attending one of our learning centres daily (Mondays to Thursdays) for academic guidance and support, Islamic studies & Quran, social interaction opportunities, and much more. For a complete list of services, see next section. QLM Learning aims to address the various challenges with traditional homeschooling/distance learning, mainly the heavy burden on parents, lack of social opportunities, and lack of facilities.

Our Approach to Education
We want our children to enjoy learning. Our approach is driven by the Prophetic teachings "make matters easy and do not make them difficult. Give people glad tidings and do not make them turn away from religion."
We aim to achieve this in a number of ways. For starters, our days and hours are shorter. QLM Learning is open Mondays to Thursdays from 8:20 AM to 1:20 PM. Second, we employ the ESA (engage, study, activate) method for teaching whenever possible, which is student-centred. After the teacher hooks students into the lesson, he/she provides concise information to students which they use to complete hands-on work. Essentially, students learn by doing. Finally, we implement numerous movement breaks throughout the day and give students daily opportunities for social interaction and physical activity.
