Choosing the right nursery for your little one can be a difficult decision, especially with so much choice here in the UAE and with each offering a different approach to early years education. Willow Nurseries understand that children learn best when they are in a nurturing and holistic environment with the ability to express their own creativity. With this in mind, they have curated specially designed learning centres to foster each individual child’s growth located at Dubai Marina, Umm Suqeim and One Central DWTC.
With the support of the Early Years & Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), children at Willow Nurseries learn through play, with guided activities centred on five key areas of development.
Personal And Physical Growth
Personal and physical growth are achieved by understanding the milestones at each developmental stage and designing activities to grow these skills. A focus on activities whichdevelop fine and gross motor skills help children in performing everyday tasks and promote independence in each child.
Social skills are a key part of learning at Willow Nursery as children interact with children and adults from different backgrounds, learn to share, take turns and enjoy meals together.
Emotional understanding is built by sharing experiences, exploring empathy in various situations and learning how to process emotions through storytelling and play.
Intellectual development is constantly being strengthened through both structured and free-play; trained teachers guide this through activities which target specific areas of learning – all whilst having fun.
Lastly, environmental values are developed by having a stimulating and safe environment where children have age-appropriate activities within reach, empowering children to be leaders in their own learning experience whilst respecting the environment around them. This includes learning how to care for their toys, clean up after themselves and respect nature.
