What characteristics should I look for in a good nursery centre?
To help parents find a good preschool for their kids, here are some of the most important characteristics that every good preschool has. We suggest that you really take in these factors if you are looking for a nearby kindergarten school. Of course, the characteristics listed below, are our most important values in The Little Dreamers Nursery. Let’s take a look below!
1. Cleanliness and Safety
The number one characteristic of a good nursery centre should be safety. If you are going to have your child stay in a place for several hours, you want to make sure that it is totally safe. That’s why we suggest that you always visit the centre before confirming your child’s placement and check out everything for yourself. You should make sure that there are no infractions such as exposed wires or fire hazards. Of course, some of the infractions might not be so easy to notice, so you need to look around very carefully.
Have you ever heard of the white glove test? This method is the perfect method for checking how clean a nursery is. To use this method, you will only need a cotton pad. Use this cotton pad to check the debris and dirt within the nursery. Of course, the place cannot shine bright at every moment! Some amount of dirt and debris is just acceptable. Although, it is totally up to you to decide what amount is acceptable.
At The Little Dreamers nursery, you can rest assured of safety and cleanness. We understand your worries as a responsible parents and that’s why we take great care to always maintain a safe and clean environment. You are most welcome to visit our nursery and to check everything for yourself, to reassure yourself that your child will be completely safe and secure in our environment.
2. Good reputation
A great nursery centre has a solid reputation! You might want to see if the current parents, or previous parents whose children attended the nursery, have been happy with the services. Reviews from other parents can be a great help to decide whether the preschool is right for your child. Reputation is definitely one of the most important factors to find the best kindergarten in Dubai.
At our nursery, we are more than happy to connect you with current parents or previous parents. If you feel as though hearing the reviews of other parents will help you to make your decision, please feel free to contact us and we will get this arranged for you.
3. A compassionate environment
A warm and compassionate and enabling environment can make learning a lot easier. If your child is going to go to a nursery centre, it will probably be his/her first time away from home and your loving care. That’s why every parent needs to make sure the environment is comforting, friendly and compassionate.
At the Little Dreamers Nursery, we continuously aim to create a compassionate, engaging and fun environment. The teachers in our team interact with every child with a caring, compassionate approach and try to make the classroom as engaging and fun as possible.
Being away from parents for almost the first time in life can be a very stressful experience for many young children. But you and your child are not alone in this! We are here to help your child deal with this experience in the best way possible. Passion, flexibility and a sense of humour are some of the values in our nursery centre, which will help your child to relax and to appreciate the experience.
4. Hands-on learning
“Experiencing” and “doing” are the best methods in which a child can learn. Children need to learn by discovery and play! This is how they start to enjoy learning and begin to appreciate it. The best nursery centre is the one that does not only teach children but also gets children interested in learning. This is exactly what we aim to do with all our children at The Little Dreamers nursery!
We do our best to engage children in play and discovery as a super effective way to learn. We don’t only want children to learn, we want them to enjoy learning too!
5. Caring caregivers and teachers
Making sure that a caregiver, or teacher, has the needed certificates is easy, but how much do they really care? Caring deeply about children is one of the most important characteristics of a nursery teacher/caregiver. This characteristic is sometimes even a lot more important than having the right certifications and training. We can assure you that the caregivers and teachers at The Little Dreamers Nursery are qualified, have the relevant early years degrees/diplomas and that they deeply care about children also.
We personally believe that body language, tone of voice, the words that we use when talking to children and the kind of conversations we have with them are very important. These factors help to indicate whether a caregiver or a teacher really cares about children and respects them. That’s why, in our nursery centre, we care so much about these little details. Our team is eager to cooperate with you in the great responsibility of educating and caring for your child.
If you are looking for the best nursery in Dubai (or nearby kindergarten schools), we are here to help! The Little Dreamers Nursery Dubai preschool works hard to maintain a safe, warm and compassionate environment for children. We try our best to make learning as fun and engaging as possible for children, through play, discovery and fun activities. We understand how great the duty of training a child is, and we are here to work together closely with parents to reach this aim!
