Emirates British Nursery, The Villa is one of a group of four nurseries. This large nursery is in a good location for local families.
The Villa branch of the popular Emirates British Nursery group is one of four located within the United Arab Emirates. As with the other nurseries in the group, The Villa branch follows the UK's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.
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 12 classes in The Villa branch and the nursery has a maximum capacity of 200 children. Staff to child ratios range from 1:3 for the youngest children to 1:9 for children age 3 plus.
In addition to the core curriculum, parents can enrol their children for Arabic, Islamic and/or French classes at an additional cost.
