Dubai, June 06, 2023: GEMS FirstPoint School (FPS), the Dubai-based British curriculum school, is launching a new nursery programme starting September.  

The new expansion will open the doors to children as young as two-year-olds who will be trained with a combination of the Reggio Emilia philosophy and the British Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The purpose-built FPS Nursery will have a capacity for 36 children. 

David Wade, Principal/CEO, GEMS FirstPoint School, says “We are absolutely delighted to be able to extend the provision of our outstanding school to include younger learners aged 2-3 years.” 

In a statement the school said the FPS Nursery teaching team are part of the school’s dedicated Early Years Department, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ by British Schools Overseas (BSO).  

Each nursery classroom will be staffed by a British-qualified teacher and up to three teaching assistants. 

Families will be offered full flexibility in terms of timings to suit their unique requirements, with care provided for the full working day or less, either three or five days per week. The nursery also offers a bespoke induction plan to ensure every child feels happy and settled at drop-off.
