Most children start at nursery in September, however registrations are welcome at any time during the year and enrolment takes place throughout the year dependent on space availability. Students may be assessed prior to admission depending on their age. Students meeting all admission criteria will be offered a place subject to availability. Every effort will be made to admit the children into their first choice of nursery.
Initially, a fully completed online application must be submitted. This can be completed for the nursery of your choice by clicking on the link given below. Following your submission, our Admissions team will contact you regarding the availability of a place for your child and will advise you of the full admission process. Parents are advised to visit their nursery of choice to tour the facility. The Vice Principal will assess the child’s suitability and degree of readiness to start at nursery and will allocate the child to the age appropriate class. Where required, the child’s report from his/her previous setting might be required.
Please note that we are unable to provide for children with special needs/disabilities. Where requests are made, a decision will be made on a case by case basis.
Children must be fifteen (15) months and less than four years old at the time of enrolment. We are also accepting applications from children who have turned 12 months in select nurseries on the basis that the child must be walking unaided at the time of joining the Nursery.
If children are assessed as developmentally ready for being promoted to the next age grouping during the academic year, the recommendation for promotion will be discussed with the parent at the time and promotion will take place after receiving parental approval.
The following documents must be submitted prior to the child attending the Nursery:
- Clinic/Permissions Pack fully completed and signed
- Signed copy of the Terms and Conditions
- One copy of student's and parents' current and valid passport and visa
- One copy of student's and parents' Emirates ID card
