House of Colours follows a British, English speaking Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum with multiple classrooms split into their respective age groups.
The nursery claims high standards of "safety, hygiene, friendliness and professionalism" as well as a full daily and weekly programme designed for creative and constructive learning. Classes for children aged 3-4 years include developing core skills including maths, literacy and language through the use of the Jolly Phonics programme.
Along with a full curriculum the nursery also offers a number of activities including story time, painting, sand play, dress-up, music, art and craft.
The pre-school offers highly flexible timing: From 4 hours a day to 9.5 hours a day - and from 2 to 5 days a week.
In a nice touch, the nursery's Web site contains a bio of each of its teachers and assistants. The majority seem to come from the Philippines, and all seem to have the appropriate teaching qualifications. The director of the school, Miss O’Connor, however holds a Nursery Nurses Examination Board (NNEB) and Special Educational Needs (SEN) certificate and worked for a 28 year period working in Special Care Baby Units (SCBU), private homes as a maternity nurse/nanny as a Nursery class teacher and manager in the United Kingdom, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The nursery's fees range from approximately 20,000 AED to 26,000 AED yearly depending upon time spent at the school, and the age of your child.
