Preschool in Dubai helps children build an excellent foundation that will stand them in good stead for joining Foundation Stage or Pre KG schooling. Preschool or kindergarten helps young children develop many valuable age-appropriate life skills such as:
- making friends and meeting new people
- social skills (such as sharing and waiting your turn)
- the basics of mark making
- fine motor skill development (such as mark making, threading, using scissor safely, etc.)
- gross motor skill development (hopping, jumping, skipping, using a scooter or tricycle)
- age appropriate maths literacy and phonics
to name a few.
We are therefore proud of our diverse team that are experienced to deliver all of the above and more.
