Welcome to Lakes Nursery


Welcome to the Lakes Nursery, having now come into its fifth year the Lakes Nursery is very well established and continues to be a success thanks to the support and dedication of our staff, parents and children.

Here at the Lakes we follow the Early Years Curriculum.

We believe that by unlocking a child’s creative potential, learning is maximized through sensory, visual, auditory and kinaesthetic experiences. This creative approach along with the focus on the six important areas of learning combines to offer an integrated holistic learning programme where independent learning, curiosity and self-confidence are developed.

Classes follow monthly topics which tie into the six key areas of learning. Topics are chosen to suit the developmental age of the children within each class and children are able to progress through a series of ‘stepping stones’ working towards early learning goals; enabling them to gain confidence and providing them with a sound basis to become lifelong learners.

Through imaginative play and creative activities, children are able to make sense of their experiences, thus transforming their knowledge and fostering cognitive development.

Here in Dubai we are fortunate to live in such a globally diverse community and therefore by incorporating an array of cultural activities as well into our curriculum, we hope to foster a respect for different cultures.

Since opening its doors on 27th November 2007, the Lakes Nursery has gradually expanded and we can now proudly boast a team of 23 members of staff and 7 classes. Teachers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are all qualified and experienced teachers.

Children’s ages vary from 18mths to 4yrs old. Classes are organized into different age groups and are as follows:-

  • Ducklings – Toddler classes (18mths-2yrs)
  • Caterpillars, Poppies, Daisies and Ladybirds – (2-3yrs old)
  • Bumble bees and Butterflies – pre-KG (3-4yrs old)   

As Vice Principal of the Lakes Nursery, I welcome you to visit the nursery so you can experience for yourself the fun and homely ambience we have created for all the little ones in our trusted care.
