Redwood Nursery Al Garhoud is a part of the well regarded Kids First Group.

The Redwood Nursery Al Garhoud is a Montessori nursery in the Al Garhoud area of Dubai, close to the Dubai International Airport.

The nursery was once Gulf Montessori Nursery, reopening in 2018 having been refurbished and rebranded as Redwood Nursery. The nursery is the first Montessori nursery in the UAE that is accredited by the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board in the UK.

The nursery website cites a focus on several important 'core values', these being:

  • We respect the singular contributions of every member of our community and embrace our similarities and differences.
  • We seek our personal best in all endeavors and are accountable for our own effort and conduct.
  • We communicate honestly, directly, and openly as partners in the learning process.
  • We explore ideas with an open mind and engage globally.
  • We nurture and encourage others in their personal quest in a physically and emotionally safe environment.
  • We model collaboration, integrity, and perseverance in our actions.
  • We strive for balance of mind, body, and spirit.
  • We prepare for the future through purposeful study, skill development, experiential learning, and continual reflection.

The day to day classroom focus is typical of a good Montessori nursery and focuses on the following key areas:

Practical life, cultural studies, language, sensorial exercises, mathematics, sports, arts and music. Children with additional needs are well catered for, with the Principal commenting that  "Redwood Montessori Nursery is an inclusive nursery where we support and monitor and review individual needs of children, enabling early identification and to facilitate early intervention.

We ensure that all children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and language requirements engage in all activities and are fully included.  We have a positive approach, building on children’s strengths and taking into account their wishes in the light of their age and understanding. 

We involve parents in a positive working relationship every step of the way and work in partnership with external agencies. An IEP provides planning for a child who has been recognized with a SEND.  The IEP consists of three or four SMART targets (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound)".  

There is also an enrichment programme featuring:

  • Drama
  • Arts and crafts
  • Boot Camp
  • Cooking
  • Dance
  • Drumming
  • Boxing
  • Comprehensive Music Programme
  • Gymnastics
  • Yoga
  • Karate
  • Languages such as Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, French, Italian
  • Golf
  • Ballet
