As an Early Learning Centre we cater for children from six weeks to six years meaning your child does not have to leave once they reach four years. We are fully accredited and regulated by KHDA which means our standards and quality of teaching is of the highest level. As a purpose built centre we have included many additional spaces which all benefit and enhance our childrens learning experience including dedicated science, music, sensory and ICT rooms along with large indoor and outdoor play areas and swimming pool.
Our unique curriculum which combines the International Preschool Curriculum with the Common Core State Standards insures that children are prepared to move to a variety of primary schools including British, American and International.
