A new nursery is set to open in Abu Dhabi in September 2018. Al Forsan Nursery by Aldar Academies, will be the group’s first dedicated nursery, and will be located on the site of the Al Forsan International Sports Resort.
Aldar Academies will invest a total of AED 5 million into Al Forsan Nursery to create a "future-focused" learning environment.
The premium nursery will have digital learning aids, individual spaces for creative arts, as well as outdoor play equipment for physical development.
Students will also have access to the facilities within Al Forsan International Sports Resort itself, which include an equestrian centre, swimming pools, and sports courts.
The nursery will use the Early Years Foundation Stage framework for up to 200 children aged two to four years.
The curriculum will be the same as that taught at the education provider’s current English National Curriculum FS1 schools. Ms Susan Carpenter, Aldar Academies Al Forsan Nursery’s Early Years and Foundation Stage Principal said:
“The goal for early years educators is to create an open, encouraging, and social learning environment where children are free to learn through exploration and problem solving. We’ve created that environment here at Al Forsan Nursery by replicating the same outstanding teaching model found across the rest of our community.”
Children who attend the nursery will also be given priority when applying to enter any Aldar Academies school; FS2 at Al Muna Academy, Al Mamoura Academy, The Pearl Academy or Al Yasmina Academy, or KG1 at West Yas Academy.
