Blog

With over 10 years of experience in Early Years Education, we have combined the commonly asked questions and parenting tips that we think would be of use to you. We would love to hear your opinion on the topics and parenting topics you would like us to discuss on our blog. From parenting tips to common Early Years Education topics, we aim to provide you with relevant information that is useful to you and your little one. To tell us what parenting topics you wish to see in our nursery blog, contact us at info@learninglandnursery.com. 

We will cover topics including phonetics, sensory play, dealing with toddlers, first day at nursery, how to choose a school and more. We regularly hold free workshops at our nursery in Mirdif. Parents can come in and meet professionals to gain knowledge in a range of topics. Here, we will also keep you updated on these workshops at the nursery and the points discussed at each one.

We will also interview staff and other childcare providers to ensure we receive first hand, credible information on the range of topics discussed. We have the same mission as you – ensuring your little one gets the most out of this stage in their lives.
