Dovecote Nursery Jumeirah, located in Dubai, opened in June 2012. It is meant to be the first nursery out of many to be opened as part of the Dovecote group. It is a sister and feeder organisation for both Repton School and Foremarke School with a number of places reserved at both schools for Dovecote children (subject to children passing the assessment tests).
The Dovecote nursery caters for children between the ages of one and four, follows the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, but adds its own ‘Four C’s’ to develop the children in: Communication, Creativity (including music and art), Challenge (physical activities, such as dance), and Cognitive Development.
Each child is also assigned a ‘Key Person’ with whom they are meant to develop "a caring and secure relationship". The Key person also is the defined figure parents can talk to about the development of their child.
Now into its second year the nursery has started to generate buzz, with early feedback positive. The fact the group is recommended by Repton (teachers from Repton will be involved with planning lessons and also parenting classes for parents) should ensure a stream of ambitious parents coming with their children to the school.
