    Thank you very much. I was searching for a list of nurseries, including some names that my wife had found, and this list has them all.

    Really cut my search short.

    The only way to improve this page might be to have a short description and review of each, but I know I am asking for a lot.

    Thanks once again.

      HI TO ALL,

      Any one can suggest a nursery for indian around jabel Ali or Jumeirah. i am staying in discovery Garden. please respond.Thanks.

      • Deepa says:

        Hi,

        Wisdom Nursery is good. My son was also there.

        http://www.wisdomnursery.com

        They are charging AED 1600 per month (Tution + activity + medical + transport)

        Best part of this nursery is that it is hygene and good staff.

        Hope this info helps u in taking decision.

        Regards
        Deepa

        hi

        hi deepa,

        i m looking for a good nursery for my 2 n half year old princess,how is the nursery n do they have bus service till discovery garden

        Archana

      • Deepa says:

        Hi Archana,

        They do have bus service. Their timings are also good. Bus comes to discovery garden around 9.00 am, so your kid will not have to get up early for school, like other nursery schools.

        My son’s development is great. Nursery is very hygene and is awarded a purple band from ministry of education. Teachers are great.

        you can visit http://www.wisdomnursery.com

        They are charging around 1600 per month all inclusive of transport. I am not sure if this price is still valid. Teacher over there knows me very well. If you want than give my reference “Deepa Joshi”.

        They had a great summer camp lin July and August 2011. They are now going for limousine tour . My son wis also going .. Kids will enjoy.

        Hope this helops you./

      hi,
      I just recently moved to dubai and i’m searching for a schoolfor my3 yr old girl. A school near by home.I live in bank street bur dubai behind apsara market. So I’d appreciate suggestions of near by schools. I want my daughter to continue her primary school in the same school too which means a school besides pre-school. but I’m open to suggestions regarding putting my child in a pre-school only or school of all age groups. Also I’m not sure if Wisdom nursery is near by here. Is it the nearest from here?

  7. issa says:

    hi thanks for putting up this site, really helpful. i am looking for a playschool for my 19-month old son either in sharjah or dubai, but most of those i’ve contacted wouldn’t allow parents/nannies to accompany their kids in school… since i am not working i want to be able to accompany my kid to school. would u know of any playschool that allows this? i am actually NOT looking for the “daycare” type, just a venue to enhance my son’s social skills. thanks :)

    ps. do you have the contact number of gymboree? thanks.

    • Linda says:

      Hi..There is a new nursery opened in Al Mankhool called Toddlers International..Its very nice and they are having an International curriculum and it is very big with all facilities. Worth seeing the place. No is 04- 3983111

      • s jain says:

        hi,
        I have been to toddlers international school and seen the working of the school for 2days as i wanted to put my 2 year old daughter there,but was disappointed.Thought the place is huge but the teachers cannot handle the children well,the nursery class was in complete chaos.so mothers….think twice before you a take a decision…

      • Linda says:

        And just to add to this that my son is very happy and so am I with Toddlers International Nursery. I view my child on CCtV as well and see the class flowing very well.His class teacher is very good.My child has settled in very well. I really dont think that anyone can come to a conclusion of it by visiting it for 2 days for 2 to 5 min and maybe it could be the time of the day that the children have come into their classes after an outdoor play or maybe just finished snacks. One needs to experience it and my child has learnt quite a few rhymes and colours in a very short time. Infact they are opening up a third nursery class too.My child loves going to school. Mums please make your own decisions with where you feel comfortable.

      • Vini says:

        Hi Linda,
        My Daughter is13 months old and I am planning to send her to nursery from next month.
        I saw ur review on toddlers International. Are they still good one? or do u know any other near Burjuman. I checked British Orchard and frankly i found it to be expensive…

        Please let me know

    • Linda says:

      Hi..My 2.5 year old son is at Toddlers International Nursery an I am very happy with the nursery program. I dont know how anyone has gone inside the class for so long to make this judgement as I know they dont allow anyone to come inside the classrooms while school time except to peep in for a minute. I am happy with the teachers there. My child is loving his school and really looks forward to going to school. I thank the school and its management for a lovely environment for my child.

  27. Saleha says:

    Hiii All,

    I am in a problem which I consider enormous. I have a kid who is 3 years and its time for him to go to a nursery but having a very very bitter situation in a nursery earlier I am very scared of nurseries or may be my own kid. The first time i had put him in a nursery he was 1 and a half years, though too very young but it was more of his personality then his age that he caused a great deal of embarrasement for me. As he use to cry continuously for 4-5 hours, pull his hair, keep standing and refuse to interact with anyone. And some unreasonable parents wanted him to be out of the nursery. I did take him out but coz of some other reasons and after that i have never tried him in one. To be very honest I am not worried about my embarrasment but him taken as a bad boy. Besides all my efforts and tries he has become all the more difficult as he challenges authority and does not take anyone who comes in his way, always ready to fight and hit. This extremly loving at heart kid will create problems for himself which makes me sweat. Above all he would be having language barrier also which i m trying to help him with and am teaching him to undestand and speak in English. I am in dire need to know about some nursery who deals with the kids with not the typical pressurising manner but very psychologically. I just cant imagine him to be actually taken out of a nursery or him getting suppresed in order to fix his habits. PLZ HELP.

    • Jessica says:

      Dear Saleha,

      Please never ever put your kid to the nursery called “British Orchard Nursery”. They only have lots and lots of rules which pressurize the small kids who are so sensitive. We too experienced and now we decided to take our child out of the nursery. We have proof too.

      • Steph says:

        Hello Mums,

        Just a quick few comments in defense of ‘The British Orchard Nursery’ and my view of pre-schools in Dubai…
        I am a full time mum from who moved to dubai with 3 pre-schoolers from England, I am not a teacher but have a ‘Early years’ Degree from UK, so when looking for a school for my 3 children was of upmost priority for me and my husband. Before i arrived to dubai i contacted many nursery schools and was in contact via e-mail, British orchard was one of the best as offering clear and concise information and they sounded one of the most educated and child friendly nurseries I had contacted. When i arrived i viewed almost 20 nursery schools!!!!! to cut a long story short i chose British orchard nursery. It is amazing, my children learned so much, all have been accepted into DESS my first choice school. The teaching staff are all fully qualified, the facilities are excellent, the extra effort and time the teachers take (Miss. Minty) in particular is 100% better than i have seen within the UK, or here. The deputy Miss. Julie and principal Miss. Debbie are so approachable and eager to offer advice and support at all costs.
        As for pushing the children?? My children are all first language English, so would relay almost a full day of what they had done on their way home.. is just unfair to say. The school definitely ‘teaches’ the children, but my 3 would drag me their on a morning!
        We love the British Orchard and can’t think of a better nursery to recommend.

        Thanks Steph

      Hi,
      Saleha the child is just trrying to draw attention and craving for mothers attention especially so i think u need to spend tme with him and play and nurture him.

      • Mimi says:

        That is a really uneducated response as you don’t even know this poor woman, what she is going through, her work situation or marital status! It’s hard enough being a mother and then having to hear something like that from other judgmental mothers. I have 3 kids and 1 of them is exactly like Saleha described and I treat them all the same. Each child has their own unique personality. Don’t worry Saleha. I feel you. You’re doing a great job. Never feel guilty or take advice from anyone unless they are a PROFESSIONAL. Take care

      I would like to build a social circle for my chile so taht she can play with other kids during the evenings in international city.
      please let me know if anyone is intrested.

  30. Shahid says:

    This is in response to Saleha’s email.

    You should consult a child specialist, who can help alleviate your concerns. Most kids do hate the thought of going away from the loving and caring set up of their home. It’s normal.

    You should also try to find an institution that focuses more on child’s development through play and fun ways rather than a heavy emphasis on books and homeworks.

    I may suggest Kangaroo Kids, located in two places in Dubai. My kids loved the Kangaroo Kids in India and it seems the Dubai branch also follows the same method of learning.

    Hope this helps.

  31. Saleha says:

    Thanx a lot shahid. I definitely will go and get to know their methods and focus for child development. I really really appreciate your help.
    Lots of prayers.

      DEAR WENDY,
      I FEEL YOU ARE REALLYUPSET AND GETTING WORKED UP WITH ANYTHING GOT TO DO WITH BRITISH ORCHARD. CAUSE I ALSO NOTICE YOU TALKING A LOT ABOUT IT AND RECOMMENDING IT HIGHLY SO IF I HAVE TO RECCOMEND A NEW SCHOOL, IT SHOULD REALLY NOT BOTHER YOU. THIS IS A SITE FOR ALL TO GIVE THEIR OPINIONS AND NOBODY IS TO GET OFFENDED UNLESS THEY HAVE A HIDDEN INTEREST BEHIND IT. I HAVE BEED TO ARTKID AND PLEASE ASK HEENA TOO FOR WHAT SHE HAS FACED. I DONT HAVE ANYTHING WITH ANY SCHOOL BUT THE PRICING IS VERY GOOD WITH WHAT THE NEW SCHOOL PLEASE DONT GET OFFENDED. THESE ARE JUST OPINIONS AND FINALLY ONE HAS TO GO TO THE SCHOOL TO CHECK OUT FOR THEMSELVES.WE ARE NOT ARGUING OR FIGHTING ABOUT ANYTHING. THESE ARE VIEWS AND ALL ARE FREE TO GIVE THEM AS I SEE YOU TOO DOING IT IN A BIG WAY BUT IT IS NOT RIGHT TO ACCUSE ANYONE.

    • Linda says:

      Also to add to the clarification, I was new to this site when I posted on 3rd July. I did not know that when I posted a comment it was shared by all. I thought that it would only reflect to the person you reply to so I replied to a couple of mumz and this was the reason my post kept coming up without me realising that. Wendy this is a very good sit for everybody to give their view points and nobody gets upset with anyone. Please dont make this site ugly for anyone and without knowing much to accuse anyone. Its a very wrong attitude and we all wish to bring out the best for everyones kids and not to get into an ugly and dirty thing of doing this.

  48. Vandana says:

    Hi Hema

    The parent would generally be the best person to judge the right age of the child. Is ur baby able to walk, say a few words properly?

    I personally feel, the child needs to turn 2 – before putting them into playschool – they are able to walk and communicate a lil more better – and u also feel relaxed – whereby u can actually ask ur kid – how his day has been. U get my drift?? :)

    But nurseries do take in kids from 1yr and above…

    There are several nurseries in Karama/ Bur Dubai/ Mankhool area – u cud take ur pick from there – nurseries and thier location are also listed on this website.

    hope this helps
    best of luck :)

  49. sneha says:

    Hi Hema and Darshi..

    I honestly feel, no child is too young to grasp, and earlier the better..as the brain development is maximum in the first 5 years of a child…. The toddler/ nursery classes are very structured in good schools, and absolutely enhance the abilities of the tiny ones..

    You can chk out the other schools too in Karama/ Bur Dubai, however I would strongly recommend the British Orchard Nursery..( ph 04 3983536) It has 2 branches( BurDubai and Jumeira)

    Great website …www.britishorchardnursery.com.. chk out the facilities..

    Cheers..

    • zini says:

      Hi anitha,

      Happy home nursery is an average one, i had put my daughter there when she was 2year n 6months. They have good play area n good teachers n they also have feild trips.The only concern was they dont allow u to go in n see ur child is doing not even on their birthdays! u just have to give them all stuff,cake n camera n still u cant be sure how it is going to be celebratd.They actually ruined my daughters birthday.U can check de la salle montessori Int nursery. its a good one u have their number is availabel on this site.All the best for ur nursery shopping.

      take care

  53. Vandana says:

    Hi Anitha

    Plz for watever reason – Do Not put ur child in Happy Home – unless u r helpless and have no other option.

    The principal there is very rude – words are less to describe her – you should ask around – u will know

    I had put my son there for a trial period of 2 weeks – I honestly decided he was better off at home rather then at that place.
    Bad Points –
    1. My son wasnt toilet trained at that time – so he wud always have a soiled diaper
    2. U cant enter the class room – at times they bring the wrong child to the door thinking he/ she belongs to u
    3. the kids dont have chairs to sit

    I can continue…..I will stop here

    take care

  59. Faiyza says:

    Dear Saleha,

    I can understand what you are going thru. Nursery is not always necessary. Its his first school , what matters. So just try to calm him down. Dont pressurize on him. He is too small to understand that. Home is the first school. so you have to start from the home. first teach him to smile. dont let him cry or get angry, calm him down with a sweet smile, hug and kisses. He want to be secure first. tell him your school stories and how you used to enjoy those days. Talk to him. Dont give him anything while crying, tell him to ask you with a smile and use words “please” to ask anything. Just calm down his angers and avoid too much chocolates.
    Hope i helped you.

  60. Faiyza says:

    Dear Saleha,

    I dont recommend you on going to a child’s specialist.
    Every child behaves the same and its up to u to take control of it by giving security to him. Dont give up so easily. He must feel accepted in his home by the way he is and changing him towards a better attitude by working and changing on our attitude. Give your child more time, affection , get close to him, ask him whats preventing him to go to nursery and take a solution for it. by providing him more love.
    It is important not to tag him as a “Different Child”.

  61. Indira says:

    Dear Mumz
    My daughter is 14 months old and actually loves kids and being around with kids. She is also very easy to handle – not the cranky types. I wanted her to start having some fun and be with kids her own age (more or less) and was hoping to start her somewhere close to the Deira / Riqqa Road / Muraqqabat area for around 2 hrs each day.
    Can someone PLEASE help me and give me some informtion/feedback on this request.
    I have looked up Tiny Tots and am also considering looking up the Primary Nursery. I quite liked Tiny Tots – any feedback / comments on this. The trouble with these options are the logistics to get to the place and back. Any alternative suggestions are so welcome.
    Thanks…hoping for a reply soon

    Hi,

    Have gone through all the comments. Creativemumz is doing a wonderful job.

    My daughter is 14 months old and loves socializing. I would like her to interact with other children of her age. We stay near Al Nahda Park. Please advise on the nurseries in this area- Dubai Qusais is not a problem either. Can you please post a review on Little Princess nursery or Al Salam nursery and their contact details as well?

  67. Kavitha says:

    Hi Keerti,

    I am also living in Al Nahda area near the park. And my daughter is 15 months old. I am also on the look out for a good nursery for her , as I feel she needs to start interacting with kids. Right now she does not have that opportunity.

    Let me know, maybe we can set a play time for the two.

  68. Minnie says:

    Hi,
    Would anyone have an idea on the New Dubai Nursery-Mankhool and De la SalleMontessori-Bur Dubai ?

    Thanks, Minnie

  69. Vandana says:

    Hi Minnie

    De La Salle Montessori is good…but the only thing is – you will end up in losing huge amount of money if you dont plan well – I will explain –
    1. The Nursery year is Sept – June/July. Hence they charge an annual fee of AED 2500/- per annum. So, if you happen to put ur child in say April; u will pay the annual fee; and again in september, u will be asked to pay the sum 2500/- !!! Because the annual year would begin.

    2. Again, since the year is from Sept – June; if u happen to enroll ur child in the middle of a semester (example February) – you will again pay late entry fees. So they will charge you a percentage of the full year; whihc will be more than a semester fee (approx AED 5k)

    I have literally been there several times – do your calculations – and ask a lot of questions. Ask them wat if i start my kid from December…see wat they say.

    The nursery is expensive…but if u start ur kid from Sept…then its fine, otherwise..believe me u will end up paying AED 12,000 for a semester.

    Do your calculations …and judge for yourself.

    Have you heard of Little Star Nursery – in Jafflia – near the Immigration Office – thats a nice place – no hidden costs.

    Best of Luck

  70. Vandana says:

    Dear Abie

    Kids Talent Center/Nursery (in Karama) is good – I have also enrolled my child there for a month…and since you are putting your child only for a short period – its convenient and worth it.

  71. Minnie says:

    Vandana ,
    Thank you so much infact I have landed up doing just that paid like 3300/- a month(incl. transport) for 2 months now at De La Salle the reason being I really liked everything else compared the nurseries I saw in that area….but then the amount was getting on to me compared to the activities and thaught is it really worth so thaught of taking second opinion.

    Little Star has a good principal but other than that it looks very sad I felt . Although, I am sure the teachers are good but the overall look of place and teachers kept me from going there, so i chose De La Salle knwoing I am paying a lot but now I am thinkiing again as Summer term starts so want to try a good nursery with nominal fees till August and then maybe De La Salle again or a school from Sept. as my son is 3 now.

    New Dubai Nursery ….I liked the infrastructure, some teachers I saw are smiling, classes look bright but the the headmistress oh god ! no comments.

    Planning to check out Apple International and also Kids Talent as you’ve mentioned.

    Thanks once again your feedback really helped.

  72. Vandana says:

    Hey Minnie

    Most welcome…hehe I have really researched all nurseries upside down…

    Kids Talent – I dont think u will find it suitable – it is not an open area – it is a closed apartment converted into nursery/ day care. For a temp period – it is ok. If u want ur child to have an outside play area – thn u will have to find another nursery. (Altho the nursery has lotsa kids enrolling)

    British Orchard Nursery – jus behind de la salle – have u tried that…its excellent..but same rules apply with regards to fees, term dates etc. U end up paying abt 2k per month for a 3day a week class.

    Little Star – I know – the first and second look puts u off…but well I heard good reviews from several mothers in my building….the staff there were really pleasant…

    cheers!

    Hi , We are serching for a good nursery with a homely environment for our 2 years old son. We need the nursery to provide transport and to love the kid so he would not miss the home much so can get settled for being so much attached to me. Preferred a near one to Jabel Ali. Thanks.

    Hi Jessica

    • Linda says:

      Hi..I have also faced a lot ofproblem and so have my friends, The teachers r not looking after the kids as they r suppose to. The toilets are very dirty and the kidsr reallypressurised a lot..We all have removed our kids from British Orchard nursery

      • Kimaya says:

        Linda,
        I have had kid in British Orchard Nursery for more than 2yrs and they have the best teachers the place is nice and kids learn so much and are happy. Before this school start my older kid went to a jumeirah nursery that was more money more driving and my kid didnt even learn colors by the end. British Orchard has good reputation good happy kids and Im happy with it and my kid now can speak the best english, she is even now telling me the way to say things and so i deisagree with your comments and feel it is sad that you want to say bad things for this school. is the lady wendy right that you are from that new school because i think a school who has to damage the competiton with saying bad things is got nothing good to show themselves. i also see you dont say good for Art kid and that is a differant type of school for different parents, not my chioice but why do you say bad for any school except one that didnt open or have any hiostory to show?

      • Linda says:

        This is just a opinion that all are giving for all mumz and its just not me there are a few more parents talking badly about a few schools including these names but again there is a mixed opinion about all. I have not experienced anything with this new school but would advise all to just have a look at it as the staff are very polite to talk to and I have nothing to do with that nursery. The facitlities and quality they are offering for the price is good. I have nothing against any nursery but its just to recommend something. I have personally gone to Artkid and have seen the way the kids have beed left unattended and crying. IThere are so many mumz sayin it on the site as well but why is it upsetting you when I am saying about British Orchard. I am very regular on this site and would like to suggest whats is best for all. Should I say that you and Wendy are also a part of British Orchardanf this is why you both are fuming and being so supportive about it. I smell some rats somewhere..This is just a site to give you opinion and discuss not to argue and accuse or blame ayone.

      • Linda says:

        Dear Kimaya,
        I have also suggested a few good schools like Kangaroo kids and Yellow bricks nursery. The best nursery in town is Childrens Oasis. They are good ones and there are many people here with us commenting on all different schools some good and some bad opinions but well these are just opinions but all mumz have to finally go and see what is best for their child. I am only promoting that new school cause I have gone and seen it with my own eyes and seen the pricing is very good for what they have to offer. I am active on this site and will reccomend what ever is best for all mumz. Please ask Heena as she has the same opinion for Artkid. and also 2 more mumz who have given their opinions for British Orchard. Why dont you also ask them about it as they have expereinced it. And you seem to be a silent and smart marketing person and promoter for British Orchard. Its really sad anyone to accuse someone else as we all are here to suggestand all are free to give their opinions to all. Then its each ones call to go and see the nurseries and decide..

      • Linda says:

        Kimaya,
        I am only suggesting to few parents who would like to know to view the new school as they have lots to offer for the price cause lots of parents areasking for good school with a good price so this was my only reason. Please note that these are only recomendations and suggestions not something anyone is sure of. One can be sure only once the school starts but they are now having an early bird offer for first 50 kids this is the only reason. Please stop accusing as this is a very good site for discussions and suggestions and dont take things so negatively as noone here has any motive as you can see that all are giving their opinions and suggestions some can be good and some can be bad.

      • Nikki says:

        Hi Linda

        You seem such an expert so I hope you dont mind me asking your advice. We are in Arabian Ranches and the 2 local nurseries are totally full and booked. Do you know of any nurseries around the silicon oasis area/ nad al sheba? We drive to Repton on the Emirates road every morning from Arabian Ranches.

        Kind Regards,

        Nikki

  93. Minnie says:

    Hi, Anyone heard of Blossom and Kensington Nursery any feedback? Also do you’ll know of any good summer camps for 3 yrs old?

  94. Santie says:

    The list seems very good, one suggestion would be to list them into areas or add the areas they are situated in, to their names as newcomers are not familiar with it.
    I am looking for a good nursery near Arabian Ranches.
    My son is turning 3 in June. Also perhaps a good summer school program?

    Thanks

  95. sneha says:

    Hi Momz ( Jessica, Vandana , vimala, Minnie, Santie…

    I strongly recommend the British Orchard Nursery, for its world class nursery experience, and summer camp facilities for children.

    U could check out the BurDubai( Mankool) and Jumeira Beach Road( Um suqueim 1) Branches…, or visti their nursery site http://www.britishorchardnursery.com, for a detailed insight..

    They have CCTV and are definately child friendly , with great facilities and offer utmost care, and are Surely not rigid with unwarranted rules hampering children..

    I also have just found out that they are having a great Gym/ Fitness club offering gymnastics/ fun exercizes and dance etc..for children through out summer…

  96. Sandra says:

    Hello Momz,

    • Heena says:

      Dear Sandra,
      Pls do not go for Art kid nursery in Mankhool..It is just not good for kids Believe me I joined this nursery along with my son. I mean i took a job there and left my son in the nursery in the same place thinking i wuld be close to my son, never mind compromising my career. I saw them treating kids very badly. One staff managed to hit the child. That child cried badly.Manager Ms Nilofer is worst of her kind, non co-operative and very rude.I am shocked how the nursery is running under her supervision.Pls donot risk ur child there. I took the wise decision and did not turn back.

      • Linda says:

        DEAR HEENA,
        I FELT THE SAME AND POSTED THE SAME. BUT I GUESS WENDY AND KIMAYA HAVE NOT LIKED THISCOMMENTS. PLEASE CLARIFY

      • Artkid Nursery says:

        Dear Heena,

        Well, I had not visited this site before, but now while I was reading thru, I did come across this mail.
        First of all you must not write half information. You must be very clear when u write. Since you had come for a job, you were not doing what you were expected to. You asked for a chance even though u had no experience( taking tutions at home does not count as teaching experience) and that was given to you. You (brought ur kid along and u) were asked to handle the class along with the assistant who was with you. But instead you left the class that u were asked to take care and went and sat down with ur own child in a different class.
        Do not write wrong things. I understand u were upset becos u were not given a job but it does not mean that u write like this. I am sure any other nursery also would do the same as Ms.Nilofer. She asked u to leave as u were not doing ur job as a teacher the first day, how would u perform later?There was no rudeness involved, if u would have stayed and continued it would have been a waste of time of urs. U neither had any experience nor qualification. We still have ur cv with us and can put it on the site. Hope all will agree with this ! Its not right to write these kind of comments on any nursery, becos u didn’t get the job.
        Also I have only read about a few nurseries………, looks like people are promoting the nurseries on this site. I am sure there are about more than ……hundred nurseries in Dubai, what about them????
        Anyone can write a positive or a negative comment about the nursery and it will be taken by the rest of the parents. I can sit down and write positive and all good comments about the nursery by different names and people will believe it!!!! I dont think its right.

      • Linda says:

        Dear Wendy, I dont need to mislead anyone as I have been told by a few mums about British Orchard. I have personally been to this new school and seen the school and met all the staff. They are superb. I dont care about which one is better but just bringing giving my opinions as all are free to give theri views and why are you getting so upset and being so supportive about British Orchard..Cause looks like you are marketing them and promoting them more than I am doing for the new nursery. I would advise you to please go and have a look at the new nursery and then compare it to any of the schools in the near by area. Then you will know why am I talking about it so highly..

      • Linda says:

        I can highy suggest Kangaroo kids and is a very good nursery. They have 2 branches one in Burj Dubai and Umm Suqueim..24,000 sq ft outdoor play area and I have gone and seen it personally. Very good and highly recoomended..

  100. Prafulla says:

    Dear mums,

    my daughter is 21 months old and lacks company of kids of her age in the building, I stay, and she is getting bored at home. we are planning to put her in a nursery, where she will interact with other kids and develop her personality. but at the same time, we are not sure that whether at 21 months, is it too early to send her to a nursery or wait till she is atleast 2 or 2.5.

    i have visited some nurseries in bur dubai/ mankhool area. please provide me reviews about Art kids nursery, little star nursery [behind dubai immigration] and new dubai nursery.

    please help asap.

    thanks

  102. wendy says:

    Linda,

    Why do you keep saying British Orchard Nursery is bad!! Are you biased towards this school? And why do you keep promoting The new school opposite Sana signal?? When it has still not started! That’s all that you’ve done in your links! And You have replied to all posts on July 3rd, like a mass reply, MARKETING this new school in Mankool which has not even started!! You are even criricizing ART KID!! how come your child went to both the schools?! that you have so much negative feed back about 2 Mankool schools. Are you doing negative publicity?!

    All our friends/family children have gone to the British Orchard for the past years, and I believe the quality of child care they offer is astounding! They have all the facilities of pool, racing track, cookery room, library, small worlds area, ball pool/ soft play , to name a few.. and have also started a children’s fitness centre..

    The place is absolutely beautiful, and clean .. They have CCTV , and all parents can watch them, so they have nothing to hide!!

    I request you not to mislead moms!

    Did your child go there? If so when, and on what basis are you basing your allegations on! Am sure the school can clarify it..

    Rgds,
    Wendy

  103. Cheryl says:

    Dear Moms,

    I completely agree with Wendy about British Orchard Nursery, a great place for a ealry child to start off, but all that is good has a price, so this nursery is the “Best” if you are ready to spend good enough.

    Art Kid & Little star both by fees wise are same, activities wise i had seen more in little star & all staff thr pay full attention to every child.

    Now rest decision lies to you, i would say dont decide by reviews made here as each one is sharing information based only on their personal review & considering their own child & fees budget.

    I hope you all agree….

    Many Thanks,

    Cheryl

    • Linda says:

      I totally agree with Cheryl. That this is all just information shared by all and each one has different to say. Finally all parents must visit the school and see for themselves for which one will be the best for their child.To speak highly about a particular school does not mean that I am promoting it. Itsjust what I felt, I shared it which must not be taken negatively and must just be taken as a recomendation not a final decision.

  104. Zoe says:

    Hi, after reading through nearly all of these posts it is pretty obvious that Linda is the (really bad) marketing manager for Toddlers International in Mankhool. Considering the school isn’t open yet she has a really informed opinion and I think it is disgusting how she is bad mouthing the competition. I have received many recommendations for the British Orchard Nursery and I have already registered both of my children for September.
    I also went to Artkids and it was nice enough but not exactly what I was looking for.

    Just because of ‘Linda’, I would never ever think of sending my children to Toddlers International.

    • Linda says:

      Hi Zoe..I am not marketing theschool as I have nothing to do with that school. I know of of the teachers there called Carolina. She is really good and I myself am an educationalist. I have just understood the method that they will follow and found that very good. And to add to that I have no personal interest with that school, its just that I went and saw the school and is really big and nice. One must appreciate that and being an educationalist myself, I will love to promote any and every school that is a good one..

    • heta says:

      hi zoe,
      I would like to know about good nursery in mankhool/karama area (or preferably near metro station if in jafliya)
      I would like to know when you say Artkids is nice but not what you were looking for (I saw similar opinion of other moms) so what’s that? and how Artkid is somehow different then others in that respect.

      I will be visiting few nurserys such as Artkid, little star etc. next week and would like to know your detailed opinion of each good nursery you know about.

      I welcome opinions of all moms on this.
      Thanks a lot

  105. Hala says:

    I must agree with Zoe and Wendy about the extremely obvious marketing of Linda for Toddlers International Nursery. I live nearby the area and since the nursery only started painting their walls about 2 weeks ago, I’m positive that nobody knows so thouroughly about the facilities, attitude of teachers or is able to have any ‘trustworthy’ opinion about the nursery.

    My child has been with the British Orchard Nursery for the past year in Nursery class and I am very happy with the school. The staff are friendly, they are very cautious in relation to child safety and care and I am always updated on the progress of my child and how he is doing during the day. I have also tried the new Gym club they have started and my son now comes home all excited and doing rolie polies around the house!

    Besides this, the school provides you with a full progress report of your child at the end of the school year which is really helping me with applying for a primary school for him next year!

    • Linda says:

      Dear Hala,
      I am not doing any marketing for anyone. Like I had mentioned before, I have bben to that school for my childs admission and got every detailed information from them. I am a very fussy mother and extremely particular where I will put my child. Also having the education background I got to the bottom of what they will teach. I can vouch for a few nurseies like Kangaroo kids, childrens oasis, yellow bricks, emirates british. Not that I have anything to do with them but I will love to promote good schools no matter even if thats a new one, I am only talking highly about them cause of the effort they are putting n and all these schools deserve it..

      • Hala says:

        Linda,

        I have read your other comments as well and am sure that the people that are offended and upset in regards to your comments about British Orchard Nursery are reacting because either their child goes there or used to go there and they have had great experience – not because they are promoting the school. The nursery has already built up its reputation that is well known around Dubai. These people are here to share their experience, unlike you who, after all these comments, suddenly started promoting other nurseries too. You seem to just go around seriously badmouthing some nurseries and heavily promoting others.

        One of my colleagues went to Toddlers International a few weeks ago and was not impressed. I personally do not know as I have no reason to look for a nursery for my son, but I do know that one who has not EXPERIENCED something cannot JUDGE it’s excellence. Nobody has yet experienced Toddlers International as it is not open yet, hence no comments can be given so far as they have not had the chance yet to prove themselves.

        I am sure there are other great nurseries within Dubai but to each his own preference.

      • Linda says:

        Dear Hala and other moms who are offended,
        I would like to apologize if I have offended anyone. It is an opinion and really dont think anyone must take it so negatively. It is out of experience and things can happen for 1 in many. As noone is perfect. I too have a child and feel the same for you all do. Honestly, I dont know about the future of this new school but as I have put in all my posts that it seems to be nice for the facilities they are providing for the price. After a few months my family is moving from Bur Dubai and I am planning to put my child in Chidrens Oasis. Unfortunately, they are full. I have nothing for or against any nursery. If I dont like the new school, I would be writing in details about them too, let it be a positive or negative one. I am not favouring any school and for all parents, you all must know what is the best for your child as this site is just based on opinions. Each one to its own and you are the best judge for yourself.

  106. Ahmed says:

    Hi

    what do u say for british orchid nursery that rules they cant bear?
    That not ever happen, my 2 son go there at first only speak arabic now in english.
    They love to playing there, everyday they the 1 who pull me from the bed to go!

    if that the case talk 2 da principal nd she can explain u for small childrens.

    They are the number 1. or else why i wud put my kids

  107. Lisa says:

    Hi All…
    I agree I think that Linda obviously works for Toddlers International in Mankhool and is obviously doing a very bad promoting job for the school as in regards for competition. I went to visit Toddlers international to see about enrolling my child there and to be quite honest the school is an absolute shambles, it is very small, there was nothing but paint on the walls and to be honest it didnt have that warming feeling and they only have 10 children admitted, I would definently not be enrolling my child in that school. I then went on round the corner 5 minutes and found The British Orchard Nursery, now this school on the other hand was outstanding. Its everything a mother could want as in childcare for their children. It was a beautiful school very bright and warm and inviting. I took a tour around the school and i was amazed by the sizes on the classrooms and how clean the school was. I met with some teachers and they were very helpful and pleasent. They even have a brilliant summer club scheme that was going on when I visited and they have a Gym for the kids, i find this truely amazing. The first time I visited I enrolled my child straight away. I advise all moms out there if you are looking for the perfect school then THE BRITISH ORCHARD NURSERY is the one for you!!!!

    • Linda says:

      Dear Lisa,
      This is your personal opinion and I am not saying that you are promoting a particular school but rather appreciate that you are appreciating the school if you like it. I have admitted my child in Toddlers International and by no means it is small. It has a huge garden. I met the principal as well who is a very nice lady with a lot of experience. Like I have mentioned thethat I have an educational background and go to the depth and details of the research i do. If you are promoting a school that does not mean you have to be linked to it. I have been promoting it cause they deserve it for the work they are dong and I am sure they will keep up to the quality. These are just suggestions that dont need to be taken so strongly and negatively.

    • Linda says:

      Dear Lisa,
      I am not offending anyone but again this was your opinion. I have enrolled my child and I dont think that it is small as it hasa beautifuloutdoor area of almost 20,000 sq ft. To add to that if there are 10 children it is nothing wrong as it is a new one coming up and take it positively that maybe my child gets more attention. Yes, I do agree with you that I dont know about how it will be as we need to test it but the way the principal and staff were very nice and sounded very positive to me. I have enrolled my child and will surely share my experience with all. My posts kept showing a number of times is cause I was new and was not aware of it being seen to all I was ony replying to all who were asking me for a school with good pricing in that location. And being a mother I will always feel good wherever my child will be hapy and would promote any school if they are good.

      Hi Yolanda.

      My child is attending that nursery. I am very unhappy and i am for sure not the only one.
      Nannys dont get paid. Unprofessional informations. Fee structure getting changed all the time. Head mistress is very rude and discussing with a lot of parents. You get school letters written in hand full of mistakes.
      She didnt pay summer teachers.
      Last week i found 1 nanny looking after 9 children at the age of 2-3 and 4 nannys cleaning one toilet.
      But for mentioning that I was told that they are grown ups (THEY ARE 2) and that i interfear with things i shouldnt be interfearing with.
      Belive me when i say that your child will be better where there is structure and nannys that actually get their salary so they can buy food.
      I hope you didnt place your child there. We are taking him out by dec when we leave but i wish i could do it now.

      Hi Sakshi

      Thanks for ur comment :).

      I think you have zeroed in on the 2 best nurseries around mankhool area. Look no further…u’ll probably end up getting even more confused. If u want to add another one to the list; then may I suggest – Little Star Nursery. (Not sure if it will be to ur liking).
      So depending on ur budget, proximity, and look/feel of nursery…i guess the order wud be –
      1. British Orchard
      2. De La Salle
      3. Little Star

      All the best. tc

      • Sakshi Talwar says:

        Thanks Vandy..

    Hi Friends,

My route in morning is by emirates road to airport tunnel alkhail road and then burdubai . … please help something good on the way.

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Kiran,

      Unfortunately there are no much options in National Paints Area, as I live there too and have struggled a lot for places to put my kids too .

      Try Kidsmate in Al Ghusais, which I feel is the closest to our area . They have playschool as well as daycare facility.

      Their website is http://www.kidsmate.ae.

      Good Luck

      Rachel

    Thanks Rachel…

    Little Princesses and World Nursery are also in my list to check . Now I will check Kids Mate too . Little Princesses is good but a little expensive . let see . Thanks for guidance.

    Yolanda,

    Thet have no website .. I visited them on thursday .. iam sorry i didnt like it … specially their staff … they seem so sharp and all are over age indian ladies. you know kids want soft good looking nice teachers . thats why philipinas are prefered . Secondly their fee is too much .. and they are not ready at all to compromise on that . you can visit them and further check it .

    Hi Yolanda

    I visited Smart children nursery today….honestly confused…The principal sounds very good and sweet..

    Infact i checked out on British Orchard too….

    Hi Karen
    I have just enrolled my child into Toddlers International Nursery. I fell in love with the location and the whole setup when I visited. It has a large play area. The faculty is world class and were very interactive and friendly with my kids as well. Each child is promised individual attention. Their security measures are up to the mark, the nursery also provides a live web enabled CCTV facility for parents/guardians to view their child at all times with secure login and password. I reviewed the curriculum and found it to be world class too.

    • Shrestha V says:

      Hey Surekh,
      That’s interesting. I had just enrolled my child a couple of days ago into Toddlers as well. I really fell in love with the place and know that they are going to impart a lot of good things into my child’s life. We should keep in touch and meet up since our children are going to be in the same nursery.

    Friends,

    So many discussions and arguments on Toddlers International…..I sit an old one into this stream of education ?
    Is it just the looks that matter or also the standing and age of the school.
    I mean the experience in the specified field…!!!!!!!!
    I think thats most important…
    Looks can be deceptive ,be it any place and any school..

    Just a friendly advice,pl look into the track record of the school…after all its our kids ,our darlings.

    Do suggest

    Hey Sakshi

    Look further and ul get confused!! The unfortunate thing here in Dubai is getting slotted …so u will always find groups and ethnicity in one area. Its a decision you need to make. Find the nursery that is spacious, friendly, caring.; hygienic. U will have to forget ethnicity here. And then decide on your budget. I too was confused…I literally ran around to the same nurseries several times..re checking it out.
    Zero in on at least 2/3 best ones…and then make ur choice.

    In mankhool/ bur dubai area..I think the best 3 wud be British O(britsih staff only) ; De La Salle(Filipino staff); and Little Star (Indian staff). I have heard good reviews of all 3 nurseries…and its just ur personal choice/ convenience/ budget.

    I have never really checked out Dubai Nursery/ Smart Children…so cant comment on them.

    But one thing I can tell u for sure…after hours of thinking….its just a nursery after all…dont fret so much….u want a safe clean hygienic place with a decent accent….thats more impt…forget the fancy stuff….ul have to worry abt school next….and trust me…its the schooling/ college years that will mould the child….i mean..most of our generation never went to fancy nurseries…but we turned out just fine!! :) …..imagine great well known people in history….no fancy nurseries and some were college drop outs…so relax!!

    phew…this reads like an essay….
    hope this helps all the mums!!!

      Dear Vandana,
      I totally agree with you that one must take their decision based on their budget and convenience. These are all posts that are based on opinions and each one might have different opinions for different nurseries. Finally the moms must go and visit the school and decide for themseves as to which one will be good for their child. TC.

      I like smart children though British orchard is the best but tooo expensive …she is just 2 yrs ans needs to play for few hours and back…..so guess next year may be would be fine….

        Since I am a working mother I wont be able to actually spend days looking for a nursery hence have been reading the posts here…

        I am looking for a nursery in Bur Dubai since the baby sitter where I drop Kyra lives opposite Royal Ascot. Could you please provide me with details on ” Our Little Star” I am also keen on checking out New Dubai Nursery as have heard good reviews of the place.

        Please provide me with any feedback you can.

        Many thanks,

    Thanks!

      Hi Zubaidah,
      I have enrolled my child at Toddlers International. Its a new school but the staff are very polite and warm. I can only suggest you to visit them and have a look. There is another one which is a very good one is Childrens Oasis but his one is not in Mankhool area. This is only a suggestion the rest is your decision.

    We are relocating to Dubai early September. Can anyone recommend a good primary school or nursery that offers KG2 other than the Children’s Garden School?

We will be living in the Dubai Marina area, so any suggestions in that area would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

    • Tal says:

      Hello Rihanna,

      I am curious to know the reason to search for a KG other than the children’s garden. Do you have a bad experience or heard anything regarding them? Or do you recommend that school for my daughter? As I am thinking of sending her there.
      I appreciate your respond. Thank you so much

  133. Zubaidah says:

    Hi, Linda, thanks for suggesting Toddlers but I did not find anyone knowing this nursery also they are charging too much for three times a week AED8000… Do you know any other that is affordable?

    My baby will 8 months inshallah…

    Are all nurseries the same rate? Please advice for good nursery near International Knowledge City and affordable. I guess I will end up getting Nanny AED 600-900 pm that is more affordable.

    Please advise if there is any good and affordable or reply whether all prices are the same so I will stop looking for one.

    Please advise with nursery name and their rates with possible number of days and hours taking care.

    British Orchard CCTV seems interesting… WHat is their rate and how many hours/timings?

    Thanks!

    • Linda says:

      Dear Zubaiday,
      I would then suggest that you hire a nanny who will charge you this amount per month as that will be the most reasonalbe way. Most of the nurseries will be around that much as younger babies fees are more expensive. British Orchard is more expensive than this one. But I would suggest you check the price of New Dubai nursery whch is in Bur Dubai, Satwa too.

  134. Zubaidah says:

    Linda, if British Orchard is charging that much it is reasonable because of their hi-tech facilities and good facilities.

    Waiting for feedback from others… Please advise on nurseries near Dubai International Academic City and please mention price range.

    Thanks!

  135. Linda says:

    Dear Zubaidah,
    British Orchard is charging much more and Toddlers has the same facilities like cctv, and all the other facilities. But please check New Dubai nursery, Also you can check Gems as they are the most reasonable.

    Waiting for feedback from others… Please advise on nurseries near Dubai International Academic City and please mention price range.

    • Sakshi Talwar says:

      Hi Zubaidah,

      I understand that your child is nearly 8 months .Dubai Nursury does not take infants.

      U can check on Smart Children …Its not huge but ok..when i went to check that place for my 2 yr old child they had shown the infant room also that presently had 8-10 babies and nannies were busy taking care …Not veryyyyy expensive and surely lesser than British Orchard….No CCTV concept but u can visit them no of times .The prinicipal who is the owner is an experienced lady .Its in Jafflia…..close to mankhool.The nos are 04 3980074.
      I spoke to few parents who had come to pick their kids and the feedback was good..Its in the business since 9 years….
      Hey i am just sharing my experience,no way connected to them ,I am new to Dubai and hence understand your concern and mental worry hence…..these details…

    Pls comment on below 3 nurseries as I dont want to send my son to any wrong places, and believe that Education provided at the initial stages of a childs growth is the BASIC to a childs future development

    1) Happy Home Nursery, Karama
    2) Kids Talent Centre, Karama
    3) New Dubai Nursery, Al Mankhool Road

      Hi Deepa,

      My child has been to The British Orchard Nursery, located in Mankool( opp Karama), and the facilities are world class. They provide excellent child care, and are very reputed, and well established with branches in Bur Dubai and Jumeira.

      A parent told me that they are Dubai’s only nursery to have a children’s gym and fitness centre.(GYMJUNIORZ..

      I believe they are having great summer discounts going on for admissions, and are offering a free class of “GymJuniorz” to all visitors..( Trust me it’s worth a try..)

      Call them on 3983536 or visit their website…

      Smart Children’s Nursery I believe is also offering quality education..

    Hi All,

    I am looking for a Nursery school for my 33 months old daughter. I like New Dubai Nursery, Satwa but they don’t provide transportation to International City. Only if they have more kids from this place, they will provide. Kindly advice other good nurseries with transportation facility to I/C.I think mankool, karama, bur dubai area is near only they should provide transportation. I also checked Toddlers,It looks good, but only problem is they are new, they are just opening this session. And I personally feel the experience makes difference. So personally I am not in favour of Toddlers how good it may look.

      Hi Seema

      I had just finalised on the nursery for my 26 months old daughter and happened to meet a friend and a friends friend who is a teacher in Toddlers ….and finally went to visit them yesterday with the same preconceived notion that they r new but then my mind changed when i sat with the principal for exactly 1.5 hours ….and visited their place too and now have a different picture in mind…
      They r surely new but teachers r experienced( i met a few) and r old in this field.secondly since they r new they would make more efforts to excel so that they establish themselves well…thirdly i directly asked them abt this hesitation and the answer was that they r tieing up with few big schools in dubai …Fourthly infrastructure ( the very minute basics) are well touched upon and taken care…and lastly cctv facility is there to monitor….

      What say…? hope it makes u rethink…i am also still weighing the options.do share yr views

    Thanks Linda – my son attends their nursery already. It’s an amazing school but only has one nursery year 3/4. I am now looking at nursery schools for my toddler in the Um Sequim 3 area as that quite easy to get to from where we are.

    I understand that the Knightsbridge nursery is very good but I dont know if it’s closed down and reopened as Blossom Nursery or there are 2 nurseries. Do you know of any other nurseries around there that are meant to be very good.

    I have heard mixed reviews about London & Paris and Emirites British Nursery so not so sure.

    Thanks!!!

    • Linda says:

      Hi Nikki,
      Emirates british is a good nursery..The only thing I can tell u is that every different person you will talk to, will give u a different opinion. U should do what u r comfortable with and which nursery u like..The most important is faith, hygiene, security and also the learning..So u should see it for yourself and decide..But emirates british is suppose to be a good one..U can also check out Safa Nursery..

    • wendy says:

      Dear Nikki,

      You can check out Kangaroo Kids or even the British Orchard Nursery( Um Suqueim Branch). My child goes to their Bur Dubai Branch. They offer excellent childcare, and have state of the art facilities. You can call them on 043953570. I believe they have summer promotions for their Gym club, and early bird discounts going on as well..

      Cheers…

    Dear Sakshi,
    This is exactly what I wrote earlier that I too had spent a lot of time with the principal of Toddlers International and met one of their teachers and they all seemed excellent and I asked them lots of questions and they knew what they were going to do. They seemed excellent to me and also for the rest of the things. I somehow liked their place too, ample of parking and big open space..get good vibes..I too think since they are new and of what I saw of them they are putting in lots of effort too..

I live in umm suqeim jumeira. most of the surrounding schools are full. Well , all of them claim to have a waiting list.

    After reading the above post i have zeroed on

    Tiny Tots

    Would love to have info / opinions/ experiences etc.. on the above nurseries. And are there any i am missing out in this area which are good.

    BUR DUBAI:
    British Orchard – But this seems nice but really expensive !!

    Does it make sense to spend so much for a nursery? Does a good quality nursery education help a child to get into a good school?? Because me & my husband feel school is more important than nursery. But then times have changed and so has our place (we grew up in india way back in 80’s when things were different while this is Dubai & 2000’s)

    Hello!

    A quick email to say that The Children’s Garden (multilingual pre-school for 2 – 5 yr olds) has just opened its new branch in Jumeira, near Dubai Ladies Club. English and French are the two languages of instruction, with equal emphasis being given to each, and Arabic is also delivered as an additional language. The website is http://www.tcgjumeira.ae, in case you’re interested.

    I work there, and have been working in Early Childhood Education for numerous years, and my experience combined with my wider research and reading means that I firmly believe that the nursery / pre-school years are the MOST important of anybody’s life, because these are our most formative years – so it’s important to get it right!

    As with anything, if you lay good, strong foundations, it’s easier to build a success – and the same goes for education.

    Good luck to all you parents out there facing education decisions! My advice to you is to do your market research: VISIT all the pre-schools you’ve heard good things about and really ask the admissions staff about the school philosophy and what their expectations are of the children who attend. If it reflects your own values and aspirations, that has to be a good sign…

    Good luck!

      Love and care nursery is a sister concern of little princess nusery (near al twar center, qusais).

      World nusery also seems ok. thats opposite al bustan center.

      Another one is Kidsmate ELC, near NMC, Qusais. My little one is in there.

    My baby is one&half year old.She is very anxious to know,to learn and to communicate with others.So we thought a play school will be the right place for her .Being a qualified graduate ,also a person who can take care of the children with concern,understanding their psychology ,I wish to work in the same school.

    I would be happy if it is in and around Dubai International City.

        Tena,
        World Nursery & Little Princess have got the same fees (tuition + transportation). Hope you know this… Are you mentioning that World Nursery is better in terms of there overall management?

      • Prash says:

        Kidsmate is in an apartment but have seen a lot of good comments about it! I feel a villa set-up will be better for children especially outside play area during the winter months. Isn’t it? Bhavna, can you please post your experience on Kidsmate? It will be very helpful since I have to send my daughter to a nursery in September… Thanks, Prash

  164. Antoaneta says:

    I live in Jumeirah Lake Towers. My daughter is 1 year old and I am thinking of starting work again. I browsed through some of the popular nurseries and was shocked by the prices!!!Does it really cost 30.000 per year to take care of a few 1,2 year olds for a few hours a day???
    I was wondering if someone knows any nurseries with British speaking teachers in the area of JLT or Dubai Marina?

    Or alternatively are there any play groups, or would there be any interested mothers to start a play group?

    • Binky says:

      er, yes, it would appear it does cost that much! I too am astounded, but there you go.
      I’m in the Marina and there are quite a few M&B groups with various activities, but none (so far) where you do not have to be present. Do a search for Facebook groups to hunt them down… and maybe we’ll see you around one day!

    hi,

    i have been reading great reviews of Toddlers International Nursery situated in Mankhool from Linda. is there anyone else who’s placed thier kid at Toddlers. need to make sure my kid gets the best considering the ridiculous fees the schools charge.
    any valuable feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hena says:

      I saw a lot of discussion here with regards to British Orchard and Toddlers International Nursery. My daughter is 2.5 and very, very happy with Toddlers International. We were a little bit hesitant to enroll her there as this is a new nursery so we shortlisted few other nurseries – British Orchard, Small World, Emerald City but finally made very good decision and enrolled her in Toddlers International. The nursery is great, teachers and principal are very dedicated, they give us regular feedback on our kid’s progress. If you go there you will feel warmth and love and see a lot of smiles on the faces of the children, very friendly staff and all in all very healthy atmosphere. My daughter has learned a lot of new things – rhymes, colors, numbers, letters and her English even blossomed after only 3 months there. Program is great, facilities are great, they have beautiful huge open space area for kids. In British Orchard we didn’t like dusty, small outside play. area for kids with no fresh air and natural grass. I give Toddlers International Nursery my highest recommendation.

      • Savi says:

        Hi Hena,

        It’s great that your child has adapted well…as is the case with most nurseries.. However I thought I would just like to clarify on the outside area of The British Orchard, as my little one loves it there.. they have an approx 12000 sq feet of outdoor area( which is big for a Dubai nursery standard), with 2 large swimming pools, sand pit, track area, etc, including 2 huge halls of indoor play areas, and a separate large specialized gym and fitness centre, so in my opinion with the hot climate of Dubai for most of the months, to have a good sized indoor area is imperative.
        They are also well established with branches in Jumeira too( which makes future transfers for unforeseen shifting easy) and the British Curriculum they teach is well recognized, and I have been extremely happy with my child’s progress and regular feedback and reports are given to me… They charge their fees for the quality service they provide ,the great facilities they have and are therefore BurDubai’s biggest nursery with so many happy parents, students and exstudents…
        Just wanted to share a happy mother’s experience with all just like you…

        Cheers to the happy moms all around.. and happy hunting to the others..

  175. Minnie says:

    Hey Rupali,

    I have been interested in the idea of starting my own nursery school for sometime. I would love to have something with the Krishnamurthy philosophy, i.e allow the curiosity and interest of the child lead him into his own learning. My sister studied in such a school in India and not to say it turned its passouts into successful, confident and content entrepreuners of the society… they are still bounded by the years of togetherness and fun learning they’d had. I would love to have my children be in such a place but here in dubai.

    I would be great to have a partner to work along with in such an enterprise.

    So call me or write to me at harjas36@hotmail.com if you are still interested.

      Dear Minnie,

      Great to know that we share common interests!

      There is a lot of groundwork that needs to be done in order to start a nursery/day care centre.I will contact you soon and we shall discuss on a workable plan to action on this soon as currently i am travelling.

      Till then if time permits do some research on legislations and licensing requirements etc.

      Also i would love to know more about Krishnamurthy philosophy and how we can include it in our teachings for children.Please stay in touch via mail as of now.

      Have a great day ahead.

    Hi Nancy,

    You could check out British Orchard Nursery in Bur Dubai, and Jumeira.( http://www.britishorchardnursery.com). They have a great fun filled themed spring camp on for 2 weeks during the Easter break. They also have the GymJuniorz club offering great fitness classes for young ones. It is a unique club, and children love it.

    Hope this info helps..

      Hello Sera

      Happy Home is not good at all … u can scroll up the page and read all the reviews … if u have a choice put ur child somewhere else. If it is ony for a short period – then its probably okay …

      At Happy Home the hygiene is not good at all and classes are too crowded … the principal is a horrible person – im sure u have experienced that …

    Thank alot.

They do have transport, but i do not know if they come to the deira taxi stand area. you can call them and check on this. They have day care as well. I like it so far, my son is still adjusting, but am sure it is only a matter of time that he is used to the nannies there. They are all very sweet and friendly. You can call Mrs. Margaret on 04 2733233. Hope this wrks out for you. God bless. Flora

      Hi Siva,

I’ve been to TT and PN, they are both pretty nice, clean and hospitable. You should go and visit to get a better idea of them. All the best. Flora

    • Amanda Mckenna says:

      Hey Parvathy,
      I have moved out of International City just for this reason, there is juzt one nursery in China Cluster (Not sure if approved or illegal), which I was least interested to send my baby in, and there are few house wifes who are running few ill-legal day cares, which again is risky to send the baby. Other than these there are none in my knowledge.

    Could anyone suggest a good playschool nearby which provide transport aswell.

    Many thanks.

    • Sibi says:

      hi Sweta,

      We are staying at Ras Al Khor, Samari Residences too. Today i just happend to visit The love and care nursery located at Al Tawar. Planning to send my 2and 9 months JJ from next month onwards. I feel that place is fine and more kid friendly. They also do have transportation facility. Do contact me on sibz95@gmail.com.

  225. Amanda Mckenna says:

    Hi Mumz,

    I would like to share my very bitter experience with Dubai’s one of the much known Nursery ‘British Orchard Nursery’. I put my Baby at the age of 2 to this nursery. The day first itself I had a very bad experience, we went to drop our baby to the school and she vomited in the car, we were really in a state of shock when the school admin staff informed us that there are no nannies for our help and we have to clean her up on our own (no matter how much late we are getting for office)!!!!

    Within few weeks we realized that our baby got some lung infection and being responsible parents we stopped her school to avoid any infection to other children. I sent my baby to school only after she fully recovered (2 weeks). However we noticed that there are few children still sitting in her class with same level of infection and coughs. We checked with the Class Teacher (Ms. Lilly), if there is no provision in the school for not allowing children who are sick to attend the classes. And she advised that it is not our responsibility but parents should think of it and that’s why they take sick children and allow them to sit with other children. This was absolutely unacceptable for us so we decided on escalating the issue/concern to the management levels; however we were totally led down by the management with unnecessary justifications.

    Consequently we decided to take our child out and applied for the same. To our great surprise we were informed that the school will not reimburse our security deposit stating that we have not informed them earlier. However with several calls and mails we managed to get 1500 AED back wherein they cut 500 AED without any explanation.

    My baby is out of the nursery now and I personally feel that the school only have lots and lots of unnecessary rules for poor babies, with no proper management at all. I highly recommend parents having any similar experiences to share within this forum and create awareness among parents.
    Best
    Amanda

    • Reena says:

      OMG Amanda! I was planning to visit British Orchard for my 2 year old boy on sunday!!!!! If thats the case, I call it quits. I think Yelow Brick Road is far more better than the other nurseries in Dubai.

      Thanks again.

      • Amanda Mckenna says:

        Hi Reena,

        Please note that there are few very good opinions about British Orchard as well, so take a decision only after having a check with other parents as well. I placed my experience in this Blog to make parents more aware on schools and their poor management. BO is very famous, but their facilities are not very good and hygienic when compared to their huge fee structure. Moreover I find their teachers and management not very approachable.

        Well I would like to know more about Yellow Brick Road, did you get a chance to visit and see yourselves??? If you don’t mind, please let me know more on them and their location.

        Thanks
        Amanda

    • British Orchard Nursery says:

      Hi Mumz,

      Hello everyone, please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Miss Debbie and I am the Principal/Operations Manager for the British Orchard nursery. It is not my usual practice to respond to ‘blogs’ or ‘comments’ on forum as this is a parent domain, however one of my existing parents asked me to look at this comment as she felt it was quite detrimental to the school.
      I have been shocked by this write up as I would consider this a serious complaint, had it been brought to my attention whilst you were within the school.
      Let me tell you what I have done since reading this:
      Firstly I have checked through our data base and files and I can confirm that we have had no parent by the name of Amanda whose child was ever in Miss Lilly’s class.
      It is possible that you were uncomfortable with giving your true name for this site. Therefore, I have then searched for any request for deposit during the second term. I do have one child who left us, as parents informed us they were traveling to India due to their child’s ill health. Perhaps this was you? I do not however, have any complaint logged, e-mail or other correspondence from this parent other than request for refund of deposit.
      In answer to your comments regarding the schools policy on sick children; we have extremely strict practice. The Ministry of Social affairs has in fact commended the nursery for its pro-active and stringent procedures on infection control throughout the year whilst the H1N1 swine flu threat was a concern.
      I can assure you that children are excluded from class during periods of ill health, incubation periods, whilst on any anti- biotic or with any fever, rash or other identifiable illnesses. Children with a clear runny nose, no fever and no other symptoms are not excluded.
      Clearly as with any nursery, some parents who have the stress of a working life and no alternative child care arrangements sometimes drop their child to class in a hope that they are just tired, grouchy or wanting to spend time with mummy. If these children are found to have symptoms as outlined earlier they are quickly and sympathetically returned home or kept in the clinic until Mummy can safely return to school to pick up their child. We have not had any cases where a parent who has been called to collect their child, has not done so. No parent deliberately leaves an un-well child in the care of a nursery.
      Our school has two DOH qualified nurses on site at all times, our cleaning and sterilization process is comprehensive, and our parents are informed of any concerns both large and small.
      With regard to the refund of deposit, perhaps there is some confusion on my part.
      Parents leave a deposit of 1,000 dhs with us, never more than this amount. When you leave the school evidently you are entitled to a refund of this amount, not more? Therefore I am not sure where your offer of an additional 500 dhs was from and then mysteriously withdrawn? You have received your entitled refund amount of 1,000 dhs. One terms notice is expected for children leaving; however we were apparently sympathetic to your problem, as refunded with little or no notice given, due to your child’s ill health.
      Miss Lilly is a lovely teacher; she is qualified cache level 2 which is a UK recognized qualification. She has worked for the nursery for four years and I have many testimonials from parents who have found her to be helpful, caring, inspirational and loving with their children.
      The nursery section of the school this year has a 97% return of children who will take up a place in our foundation classes for September 2010.
      We have 100% of our foundation children leaving this year which is a success as these children have been accepted into the school of their choice after spending a year or two years with us.
      I could write to you about the many, many happy parents who have left us with fabulous letters of congratulations on their child’s experience and their feeling of being supported and part of our family. Our website has a selection of our parent’s feedback which can be verified as genuine.
      Not every nursery will be the right ‘fit’ for every child and every parent. Parents who visit our school and meet with myself will know that I do suggest that all parents visit at least three nurseries before they register. This is a very important time for you and your child and should be a positive and happy experience. Clearly, in this case we were not the right ‘fit’ for you, however we do wish you and your child well, we hope that you have or do find a nursery that suits your needs and that your child’s health continues to improve.
      If however, you are in fact not a parent but another nursery school wishing to discredit our school and its good name then I must ask you to please not use these tactics to do so. I am a true believer that children vote with their feet and thus the parents will follow. If you are a good provider of child care then focus your attention on your own school, work to improve your services as we work to improve ours and consider building friendships with other nurseries where you and they can share best practice, after all we are all working with the same purpose and goal – To improve childcare provision in the early years sectors for parents and children in Dubai.
      I do feel that these sites should not be used for marketing, tempting as it may be. I have no opinion on other schools in the area, art kids, toddlers and others I am sure are all good in their own way with their own policies and suit many parents.
      We are a ‘British Early Years’ setting where although we have some structure, our teaching is play based, our planning is child initiated and our goals are in line with the Early Learning Goals from the UK. We do not feel we are in direct competition with any other nursery – as stated previously parents need to find the right ‘fit’ for them and their child.
      I hope this has helped clarify some of the concerns and prevent further negativity for parents as a nursery should always be a positive experience for all concerned and foundation stage should be the building blocks on which all subsequent learning is built. Children need to be happy, secure and stimulated so let’s not forget who and what is important.

    Hi friends,

    are there any mothers out there who would like to join me in opening up our own nursery. I have a dream to have a nursery and then later on a school on the alternative model of teaching either Waldorf or Krishnamurthi, wherein the child is allowed to think for himself and grow with free thought and expression. Not so much emphasis is laid on mark sheets and examinations as on self development and nurturing their own individual streak of genius.

    It would be nice to have a partner on this journey, I m restricted both financially and time-wise.

      I am a very happy parent, and absolutely love the British Orchard Nursery facilities which are much more than any nursery school in Dubai.

      I am surprised at the remark on complaints…I think the one lady who has spoken on British Orchard has been promptly replied to, and such remarks seem unreal.
      There is a big reply from Ms Debbie The Principal too, so these allegations are baseless and don’t have credibility. If you scroll high up, There was a lady who kept telling all not to go to British Orchard and only to a new nursery in Bur Dubai( when it hadn’t even opened !…) So we cannot jump into conclusions based on some marketing comments.
      I suggest you meet with existing parents, read their comments which are on their website, and personally look at the facilities, and make your decision.
      I know of 2 students from different batch years who have passed out, and all seem happy. They are one of the oldest, well recognized and the biggest school in the area, and have hundred’s of students joining big schools every year, so obviously the quality is very good.
      My child has developed considerably, and the British Curriculum they teach takes care of many areas of the child’s over all learning. Their Gym facilities and extracurricular clubs are also great..

      Happy Hunting to all of you momz.. however each one of us must see whats good for us and which nursery offers great quality with a value for our money.

      Regards…Wendy

    I will highly recommend Toddlers Intl nursery as my child has developed a lot and has shown a lot of improvement..The staff and principal are very good and every child is taken a lot of care..Very clean and great place for a child..

    hi am looking for a play house for my baby she is 1 n 1/2 yrs . can u pls suggest me a list of play house in al nahda

  245. linda says:

    Dear Iman,
    I guess some people here are marketing themselves. I am a happy parent of Toddlers International nursery and will surley talk good about it. Even when I went and visited the nursery before they opened, I got to meet the staff and principal and got lots of information from them which I did not recieve from elsewhere. We are not here to market or talk bad about any school for any reason. We all mumz are here to see our children grow in a lovely environment. Also if you scroll up, I have been praising a few other good nurseries that I have visited and there is one same person who gets offended..Dont want to compare but I think you as a mother should go and visit all nurseries and take a decision based on what you see and where you feel comfortable. These are all opinions and noone should feel ofended.At the end of the day your child has to be happy and you need to ensure that..

    Dear mums,
    I am looking for a good nursery in Karama/mankhool area for my son who is 19 months old. I want a nursery where there is good environment for my son to mingle with other kids as well as do variety of activities without pressure. I do not believe in very strict rules for kids of this age. Let me know your opinion for Little star nursery, Arts Kids nursery and if there is any other good nursery with reasonable fees.

    Also guide me what to see in a nursery when I go to see it as I am not sure how I can judge a nursery just by looking at it for five minutes.

    I really appreciate your help on this.
    Thanks in advance!

    • Elana Knight says:

      Hi Kiran

      My daughter are currently in Little Learning Nursery and the school are great.

      They charge AED 2100 for ful day per month from 7:30am to 6:30pm so if you require half day only or less hours you will pay accordingly, but British Curriculum.

      I see such a difference in my daughter since she started and learning new things daily.

      FYI – We have searched all over this area and by the way I am also living in Tecom but could not find any school better.

    What are you talking about people????i have seen all the sites and I’m sincerely surprised how the other people can use the kids in such a way!!!!This is steeling!!!!or for you monthly fees of 9-12K is fine???only for few hours of morning nursery????and what to do when you are a regular person with a regular salary having a small child?to take nanny who will spoiled the kid and no education will be there?In all normal countries the nurseries should be free and the medicine especially for kids,or rather payable, but private and with very high reputation diplomas and staff like that.I’m so disappointed!!!

    hey
    please never put your child in “BRITISH ORCHARD”it has too many rules……you ant your child to enjoy and have fun in nurseries not pressurised.its strange how its not just me who is complaining about this nursery but a number of people.

    My son goes to “super kids”in mirdiff and he absoloutly loves it…and i love it too cus the teachers and stuff r extremly warm and polite:)

    hi all ,
    for those of u who are staying in sharjah , u better go for a nursery in sharjah , because dubai schools dont provide bus for sharjah . my son went to EMIRATES ENGLISH NURSERY. and it is very good . they take care of ur kid very nicely and they dont dump kids like some other nurseries. i stay near EmiratesNBD bank , al tawun, and there is transport facility to this area. so for those who stay near al tawun area i think this school is a good option . pls visit their website
