Opening in September 2018, there will be two specialist classrooms at the Jumeirah Baccalaureate School (JBS) campus.  The provision has been designed by specialists from The Developing Child Centre (TDC) to support children with ‘significant learning, communication, behavioural or adaptive functioning needs’ aged between 4-7 years. 

Class sizes are deliberately small with a maximum of 12 children per class.  Specialist educators will offer individualised learning, with low child to staff ratios (4:1). 

Speaking to, Tracey Warren, Director of Education at The Developing Child Centre said;

“We are delighted to join forces with JBS, a school whose inclusive approach wholly aligns with our own.  These transitional classrooms will be a stepping stone to the International Baccalaureate programme for children who require extra support. 

"We will focus on school readiness and independence in small, nurturing classrooms.  Our certified and well trained team will deliver a highly individualised curriculum’.
