The story so far...
Teddy Bear Nursery Mohammed bin Zayed City is one of four nurseries bearing the same name. The original nursery in Khalifa City A, now relocated to Al Mushrif, opened in 2008 whilst the branch in Al Bateen was established in 2016 and has been followed by the latest branch in Al Shamkah in 2021. Children are accepted from the age of 45 days (in line with UAE Maternity leave provision) to 4 years.
The nursery group described its unique ability to assist families with young children in Abu Dhabi, explaining to us that:
Teddy Bear Nurseries offer 10 plus years of experience in Abu Dhabi, with a holistic early years program delivered in a loving and safe environment. The nursery team believes that a happy child is a learning child, with the growth of well-being and independence nurtured in the nursery. The staff is dedicated to ensuring that each child is given a balanced education and is guided through his or her journey of discovery and exploration with a qualified experienced team of early years teachers.
The nursery in Mohammed bin Zayed City, though only established in 2018, has grown to provide care to some 100 children in mixed groups.
The nursery follows the Early Years Creative Curriculum - an American curriculum with a particular focus on Life Skills and School Preparation. Children are taught through a Project Based Learning curriculum designed to be fun and engaging and carefully planned around the children’s needs, concentrating on three key learning areas and four specific learning areas. The curriculum is said to be "very effective and adapted for all age groups and their needs, encouraging children to develop new skills through active learning".
The nursery supports children with Special Educational Needs through an Early Intervention Program provided onsite in partnership with Applied Behavior Institute (ABTi). A dedicated learning support teacher provides one on one and small group work activities with the children using a wide range of materials and activities already setup in the Montessori Learning Area. Such activities focus on practical life, art and creativity, sensorial, maths and language.
After Teddy Bear Nursery children go to a variety of British, American and UAE National curriculum schools.
