Our ‘boutique’ Emerald City Nursery is a hidden gem in Jumeirah and a home away from home. Come and find us, across Al Wasl road from Box Park and you will discover a gentle, loving, nurturing and unhurried environment, the perfect place where your baby and young child can begin their early childhood education from the age of 45 days to 3+ years. Our Nursery hours are from 7:00a.m. until 6:00p.m. so conveniently choose which starting and finishing time suits you best.
The Nursery Director Ms. Sharon, (New Zealand), Nursery Manager Ms. Elizabeth (Scotland)and all staff are qualified in Education with years of experience, and so all practices are informed, with a child’s development at the centre of our curriculum. Above all else this means that we are passionate about extending every teaching and learning moment, connecting with your child and developing respectful care.
Our vision is to support an ‘organic’ childhood. We celebrate learning through investigation, playfulness and risk taking, while at the same time we practice peaceful observation. Most of all we just love to be outdoors and as often as we can, we spend hours in our veggie garden, connecting with nature and understanding life. All teaching practices are underpinned by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), British Curriculum and we are accredited by the Preschool Learning Alliance.
Teaching is what empowers us, it is in our hearts and without doubt Emerald City Nursery is the greatest start for life. Come and meet Ms. Elizabeth to discover more about our values, ethos and practices. Ask about our ‘learning stories’ and individual children’s ‘portfolios’ which we are very proud of. Our doors are always open!
