Top Schools in the UAE – The Awards Official Shortlist 2019

Best Nursery School – The Shortlist 2019

The following schools have all achieved short-listing for the 2019 Best Nursery School Award for their pre-school education of children in the UAE.

All the schools listed, in different ways, provide outstanding mix of pre-school learning so that every child can meet his or her individual ambitions, potential, and ability. Kindness and care for little ones, high levels of staffing, an understanding of the benefits of different pre-school approaches, outstanding relationships with parents and large doses of inspiration are the stand-out features we have looked for. 

When we have looked at schools, we have weighted those that plough back investment into facilities, teacher salaries, resources and school improvements year-on-year to improve education for children.

All of the schools shortlisted endeavour to deliver a benchmark for the best nursery education for children available in the UAE.

Finally, we have looked across all areas of provision, investment, innovation and achievement that support each school being shortlisted. This Award was steered by journalists at our sister site who have recognised expertise in this area with many years of nursery school visits and experience behind them.  

The finalists and winner of the Best Nursery School in the UAE will be announced on 7 March 2019 at a glittering awards ceremony kindly hosted in association with Dubai Parks and Resorts, on a night that will bring together schools, their teachers and leadership, to celebrate and recognise all that they achieve for our children each year.
