We work hard to ensure that our environment, both outdoors and indoors, is inviting and filled with quality, purposeful resources.
This means that:
We ensure that not only our physical environment is positive, but also the social and emotional environment in our classrooms and on our premises. Our staff model and encourage positive behaviours and ways of speaking with others, which in turns positively affects each child and person who walks through our doors.
We believe that providing children with consistent, fun opportunities that promote active learning is essential.
This is why we ensure our children have regular experiences with:
Events are a big part of how we foster community within the nursery. We regularly hold events for children that showcase and integrate what we are learning in our curriculum. We also regularly hold events for the parents and families of our children. Each event is clearly announced via our various communication methods so that you’re always informed.
Our events are always purposeful and linked to learning, and they create a sense of “one-ness” in our nursery that makes it truly feel like a home away from home.
We love field trips because learning truly comes alive when we go on them!
Our field trips are for children 2 years old, and safety comes first. On each trip, we ensure that we follow all requirements as set forth by the UAE’s governing bodies. This means that sufficient staff and supplies, including First Aid resources and snacks/water, are always present. We also ensure that all children on the trips are wearing their Edu Fun uniform coupled with our nursery’s contact information for easy identification.
Our field trips are linked to what we are learning in our curriculum. This means that what children learn is not only done through hands-on activities within the classroom, but that it is also experienced in our real community as much as possible. This is the kind of learning that makes for lasting memories and that solidifies understanding.
