The Little Dreamers Nursery is located in Jumeirah 3. The nursery claims the 'wow factor' with an indoor forest and 'customised tree'. Unique indeed!
The nursery is led by Principal and Owner Mahnaz Vatanparvar and has six class groups, each with a qualified teacher. Staff to child ratios are dependant on class size and currently range from 3:8 to 1:5. All teachers are Cache* Level 3 qualified, and 70% of classroom assistants hold childcare certificates. Most staff have between 5 and 10 years nursery experience, and are encouraged to take additional qualifications to improve their knowledge.
[*Cache qualifications are qualifications awarded by the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education - the UK's leading provider of vocational qualifications for those working in the care and education sectors. Cache qualifications are divided into five different levels, ranging from Level 1 (entry level) to Level 5 (for experienced professionals).]
The Little Dreamers Nursery offers the English EYFS curriculum, with an emphasis on The Curiosity Approach , a style of practice which focuses on 'awe and wonder' in early years learning.
Principal Mahnaz Vatanparvar told us,
"At The Little Dreamers Nursery, we believe that children are born capable and unique, with their own interests, passions and dreams. We aim to develop the children's abilities, well-being, dreams and interests through a nurturing, inspirational educational programme".
The nursery supplements the day to day curriculum with a broad range of extra curricular activities. These include drama, ball skills, ballet, yoga, music, gymnastics and Zumba. Tuition in both Arabic and French is also offered.
The nursery claims a unique feature in the shape of an Indoor Forest and customised indoor tree! It also offers children an indoor play area, bike track, outdoor mark making area, art room, indoor gym, outdoor playground, pet corner, gardening area, construction area and library. For tired little ones there is a comfortable sleeping room.
The Little Dreamers Nursery hopes to create a "home away from home" environment where comfort for each individual child is valued. Classrooms feature many wooden and natural resources and there is an effort to use a minimum of plastic toys wherever possible.
