About Us

Little Land is a well-established nursery in Dubai with a caring and friendly atmosphere. All of our teachers have pre-school teaching qualifications equivalent to the National Nursery Examination Board (N.N.E.B., UK) diploma; and we also encourage all of our classroom assistants to gain formal nursery teaching credentials. Our nursery section is for children from 14 months old (and walking), and our Montessori section is for children from 2½ to 4 years old.

As well as six classrooms, Little Land has a spacious playground divided into four large shaded areas; we aim to provide your child with the best facilities to develop his/her self-confidence and independence.

Our Nursery

Children from 14 months to 2½ years enjoy a traditional nursery environment, where they can play with a wide selection of toys and materials, both inside and outside the classroom. From arts and crafts to sand and water play, and from books and puzzles to music and movement, we encourage the children to explore their environment and to develop their senses.

Our caring and dedicated teachers help to encourage the children's independence, language, hand-eye co-ordination and motor skills.

Montessori Centre

The Montessori section is for children over 2½ years (in the September of the academic year in which they join).  Montessori is a system of nursery, primary and secondary education devised by Dr Maria Montessori in the 1950s. She developed special teaching methods and equipment to maximise each child's physical and psychological potential at each stage of his/her development.

In practice, this means that we divide our Montessori classrooms into six areas: Art, Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Culture (which includes geography, nature and science). We give the children the freedom to choose from the different sections around  the classroom; and we encourage them to complete their chosen activity, working at their own pace. Giving children the freedom of choice, movement, speech and opinion within a well-structured environment means they are eager to learn, becoming more independent and self-confident.

Our Montessori-qualified teachers work individually with each child, carefully charting his/her progress and recognising when he/she is ready to move on to the next stage.
