At Al Dana Nursery the proper development of language and mathematical, physical, personal, social and emotional skills ensures that students have an edge when they start formal schooling.

“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six,” said Maria Montesseri who is best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name.

Taking these words of Maria Montessori into account, parents of all children aged between one and a half and three years old should consider enrolling their child into a good pre-school, before they commence formal schooling.

The programme followed by Al Dana Nursery is designed to develop the seven areas of learning.

These areas are personal, social and emotional development, physical development, communication and language, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts.

Each area of learning is equally important and combined develop the skills, knowledge and experiences required for students to grow, learn and develop into strong and confident individuals.

Personal, social and emotional development ensures that children develop self-confidence and self-awareness, make positive relationships and manage their feelings and behaviours.

Physical development focuses on their co-ordination, fine and gross motor skills, control and movement.

Communication and language involves the development of listening, understanding and speaking by ensuring a rich language environment.

Literacy is the development of pre-reading and pre-writing skills, recognition of uppercase letters and tracing of patterns and letters, and mathematics involves the learning of the numbers, shapes and sorting.

Understanding the world is an area that helps children to develop their knowledge and skills about the world around them, namely their surroundings, body, plants, animals and more.

Expressive art promotes their creativity and ability to express themselves using various media and use their imagination.

All teaching and non-teaching staff at Al Dana Nursery are carefully selected and given in-house training to meet the special needs and requirements of children entrusted to their care.

Al Dana Nursery is licensed by the Labour and Social Development Ministry and the management of the institution has 30 years of expertise in pre-school and kindergarten education.
