Half term hols over already...?

Festive Time Already

As the half term holiday draws to a close, it's back to school and we have been busy compiling a list of events for the rest of the term. We have included upcoming events to watch out for, but don't forget to check our What's On page regularly and to follow our Facebook page to make sure you are kept up to date with all the happenings. 


We'd also like to introduce two new pre-school curricula - one being the highly acclaimed Finnish curriculum  and the other, HighScope, both of which are now at nurseries in Abu Dhabi.


We are looking forward to great things for the rest of this year. Hope you had a happy Half Term!

From Petra & Isabelle

Finnish Curriculum


The highly acclaimed Finnish curriculum has finally made it to the shores of Abu Dhabi. The curriculum is taught through direct explicit instruction and interactive teaching methodology that focuses on six core curricular domains to address the emotional social, cognitive and physical development of each child. 


Smart boards, computers and tablets, as well as well-equipped resource rooms have been included to support the 21st century learning philosophy in order to inspire innovation and ignite the children's imagination.


HighScope Curriculum


Another early childhood facility in Abu Dhabi offers a special curriculum called HighScope. The HighScope curriculum allows learning through hands-on experiences with people, materials, events, and ideas.

It emphasizes adult-child interaction, a carefully designed learning environment and a plan-do-review process which strengthens initiative and self-reliance in children and young people. Components of the HighScope curriculum include proven teaching practices to support children's growth and learning, assessment tools to evaluate and plan learning as well as measure the results.
