Dewdrops Nursery JLT operates in three locations in Dubai, two in JLT and one more in Al Barsha. Dewdrops' first branch was in Jumeirah Lakes Towers in early 2012. The Al Barsha branch is the latest branch and is meant to serve Al Barsha, Tecom, Barsha Heights and The Greens. It has "very large, spacious classrooms, plenty of natural light and two super-sized play areas". It occupies the entire first floor of the Gulf Drug Building.
All nurseries in the Dewdrops group follow the UK's EYFS curriculum and divide the children in three groups, toddlers, beginners, and intermediates.
Pupils are taught personal, social, and emotional development, creative and physical development, communication, knowledge, and understanding of the world around them. The curriculum is meant to foster the growth of these stages as well as build a sense of responsibility.
Currently over 30 nationalities of children attend the nurseries. Staff is multi-national with the "requisite qualifications and experience in teaching the EYFS curriculum".
The nursery says its vision is to create a happy, safe, conducive and stimulating environment with the aim of assisting children to thrive and develop their practical, social, motor, emotional, intellectual and latent skills enabling them to achieve their fullest potential.
Fees depend upon the number of days children remain at the nursery, and the length of their day. There are numerous options available, details of which may be found here, but ranges from a monthly AED fee of 1600 (2 days, 9-12:30) to 3000 AED (5 days, 8 am to 6pm). Clearly the longer a child stays the better the 'value'. There are additional - one off - joining, medical and stationary fees totaling 1050 AED.
Dewdrops also provides transport, the cost of which depends upon the branch and frequency of use.
