There are currently one The Children's Garden (TCG) nursery one in the Green Community. The second to open, in Al Barsha, closed in July 2019.

Update: The Children's Garden in Al Barsha closed in July 2019. The DIP branch remains open.

There is now a single The Children's Garden (TCG) pre-schools, in the Green Community/DIP,. The second in Al Barsha 2 closed in July 2019. The pre-school is owned by the Taaleem group, the second largest school group in the UAE.

TCG follows an Early Years framework that is aligned to each of the Taaleem schools, concentrating on these major areas: Literacy, Numeracy, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design, Personal, Social and Innovation Skills, Communication and Language and Physical Development. TCG students are prepared academically and socially to enter the Primary Stage of a big school.

TCG also provides a focus on languages - beginning in nursery for 2-year-olds, it is English only. However, from Pre-KG onwards, TCG Green Community offers English, French or German and Arabic as third language and TCG Barsha offers English, French or Arabic.

The pre-school's pupils are a mix of nationalities - which fits with the school's approach.  The largest number in the Green Community are German, American, British, French and Canadian.   

Timings for the schools are as follows:

Green Community Al Barsha (now closed)
Nursery - 3 or 5 day option Nursery - 3 or 5 day option
Half day 8.30am to 12 noon Half day 8.30am to 12 noon

Full day 8.15am to 2.15pm Full day 8.30am to 2.30pm

An afterschool progamme is available for children from Pre-KG upwards.

The nursery has no catering facilities, therefore parents are asked to pack snack/lunch for their child.

Fees range from AED 29,925 to AED 46,000 at the Green Community, payable in three instalments.

There's a non-refundable Application Fee of AED 500 to put your child on the waiting list. The registration fee of AED 2,000 is payable when you have been notified of your child's placement availability, it is however credited towards the fees for Term 1 or joining term.

You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service.
