Rationale

The Nursery recognises that the well-being and learning of children can benefit from a positive experience of transition from home to the Nursery. Our Nursery is committed to support the children and their families at times of transition having high regard to meeting children’s social and emotional needs. This work is reflected in our procedures and practices.

Statement of non-discrimination

The Nursery admits children of any race, colour, religion, sex, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded to or made available to children at the Nursery. It does not discriminate based on race, colour, national, religion, sex or ethnic origin in administration of its policies, admission policies, and development programs. Our Nursery believes in equal opportunities for all children and any special education needs (for children of determination) must have the same admission arrangements as all other parents/guardians.

Procedures:

The following procedures are followed for the admissions process.

(A) - The parents/guardian must fill an initial registration form containing the details of the parents/guardians and the child along with the required documentation such as Emirates ID, Passport, and Residential proof. In case if seats are not available, the application would be waitlisted.

(B) - An initial assessment of the parents/guardians and the child would be performed by the Nursery Manager. Based on the initial assessment, the Nursery would prepare a report and endeavour to inform the parents of the outcome of the admission process as soon as possible.

(C) - It should be noted that admissions to the Nursery even those attached to a school does not guarantee admission to the kindergarten of a particular school. Parents must follow normal procedures when applying for full-time education.

(D) - The Nursery would operation 5 days a week (Sunday to Thursday) excluding public holidays and is open from 8:00 AM to 5.30 PM. Each Nursery class operates three sessions (Morning 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM, 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM,) and Afternoon 1:00 PM to 5.30 PM). Parents will be given a copy of the UAE holiday list.

(E) - Parents/carers will be given a copy of our Admissions and Cancellation Policy and must sign the admission form when their child is admitted.

(F) - Children thrive in an environment in which they feel safe and secure. Parents/carers must feel confident that their child’s experience is as good as it can be. In order to facilitate this, all children would be allocated a key person. This adult would have a special relationship with the child and their family and is their first point of contact.
