Emirates British Nursery group offers nursery provision for children between the ages of three months to four years of age.

The Motor City branch is Emirates British Nursery group's latest nursery to open, and is one of four located within the United Arab Emirates. The nursery opened in 2013, 13 years after the first in 2000. As with the group's other nurseries, the Motor City branch follows the UK's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

The three other Emirates British nurseries are located in Dubai Silicon Oasis, The Villa and Mirdiff.

Amira Baker, the founder of the Emirates British Nursery group, says of the organisation,

"Emirates British Nursery was founded in Dubai in the year 2000. Since those early days the nursery has grown and developed, but the underlying principle of providing the highest quality childcare and pre-school education still remains true".

Classrooms in all nurseries are split into four age groups to allow children to play and interact with others their own age. These are the Disney babies (3 months to walking), Sea World (walking to 2 years), Jungle Animals (2 to 3 years) and Mini Beasts (3 years plus).  There are 22 classes in the Motor City branch and the nursery has a maximum capacity of 300 children.  Staff to child ratios range from 1:3 for the youngest children to 1:9 for children age 3 plus.

The nursery group as a whole has a solid reputation among UAE parents who talk about the quality care and facilities (although these will vary depending upon location). 

Emirates British Nursery does not provide hot food, but will refrigerate any meals brought in by parents.

The nursery offers a range of fees and timings.
