The Cultural connection to Children’s Nursery in Dubai Apart from the British and American influences on the education system, there are other curriculums that are followed by various pre-schools in Dubai. At the end of the day however, each strives to bring about the best in a child Dubai is known for being one of the most vibrant places on the planet. It is a regional leader in both, the personal as well as professional hemispheres of life. Supported by quality infrastructure and a progressive government, Dubai has become one of the top destinations for expats around the world. Now, for most of the expats, the families usually tend to follow in tow, sooner or later. And where families are, there has to be kids. As a result, the diversity in Dubai has even come to reflect upon the education system out there. Given the veritable melting pot of cultures, regional influences and nationalities, the education system too follows this trend. Thus, from finding a pre-school in Dubai to reputed institutions for the pursuit of higher education, the city offers it all. When it comes to finding a children’s nursery in Dubai, the choices are wide open. There is no uniform curriculum system that is followed per se. However, many nurseries and preschools in Dubai do tend to follow the British education approach that bears its roots from the Early Years Foundation Curriculum. The reason behind the popularity of this approach is easy to see when one learns of the inherent flexibilities it offers in nurturing the various skills of the child. The British approach is renowned for taking into consideration the emotional as well as intellectual development of the child. As a result, this approach to nursery and pre-school education has become vastly popular. But, if the British influences are around, the American influences can’t be far behind. This is especially true considering the strength of the American population out here in Dubai. While the two main methods can be said to be similar, the latter also focuses on the teaching through inclusion of multiple-economic strata and an emphasis on imparting knowledge about health and hygiene. Besides the British and American influences on the education system in Dubai, there are other curriculums that are followed by various pre-schools in Dubai. These include those that follow the traditional, Arabic system of teaching. However, it is often suitably altered to reflect better upon the cultural diversity of Dubai. There would also be not many surprises if one were to find educational institutions following the Oriental or French approach to teaching. These however, are relatively lesser in comparison to the two that dominate the education sector in Dubai. The approaches may differ in their methods of teaching and even the languages may be different. But, at the end of the day each educative approach strives to bring about the best in a child from virtually all aspects. This ‘unity in diversity’ is a true reflection of the spirit of Dubai
