Description

 

Little Gems Pre-School is a leading provider of early education for children in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Established in 1993, the School is renowned for its “Learning Through Play” philosophy that fosters curiosity and effective communication, cognitive, motor, and critical thinking skills.

Little Gems follows the British Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, a proven academic framework based on seven key areas of learning structured to nurture a child at this crucial developmental age.

At Little Gems, we prepare your child for ‘big’ school and enjoy strong relationships with leading schools in the Kingdom. Our students stream into the Country’s top performing schools.

Situated at a prime location and featuring bright and airy classrooms, large covered playgrounds and large inside play area, our CCTV monitored campus includes a well-stocked library, and an NHRA approved Nurse’s Clinic with a fully qualified Pediatric Registered Nurse.

Our passionate and caring team of teachers encourage children to learn at their own pace and positively reinforce the development of behaviours that support your child to reach their full potential. The School has an excellent adult: child ratio of 1:5 in Pre-Nursery classes and 1:6 in Nursery classes to guarantee that every child receives the attention they need. All teaching staff are either British or US certified and hold pediatric first aid certifications so that you can rest assured your little ‘Gem’ is in safe hands.

Mission Statement

We foster curiosity, inspire creativity, and encourage critical thinking so that our students have a strong foundation for the rest of their learning lives.

Pre-Nursery Classes

We are very excited to welcome our littlest ‘gems’ to our Pre-Nursery classes designed to encourage the social and language development of children between the ages of 18 months to 3 years.

Classes follow a daily routine to provide a sense of security. Daily arts and crafts activities support the development of fine motor skills, whilst fundamental academics such as numbers, colours and shapes are introduced during ‘circle time’ through songs, rhymes and interactive activities that engage and stimulate learning.

Pre-Nursery class timings are 8am to 12pm and children can attend 3, 4, or 5 days per week. There is an early drop off and after school care programme available on request where children will engage in extra-curricular fun learning activities under the supervision of an experienced Early Learning professional.

Nursery

Welcome to Little Gems Nursery where we support our bigger ‘gems’ to take the next step in their personal and academic development and prepare them for ‘big school’ Reception. Nursery classes cater to the developmental needs of 3 to 4-year-old children and your child starts working towards achieving the British Early Learning Goals in particular those focusesd on numeracy, literacy and independence. Exploration and learning through play ensure your child’s day is filled with fun and joy, while a strong emphasis is also placed on numeracy and literacy and the world around them. In Nursery classes the phonetic alphabet is introduced using the Jolly Phonics scheme and there are daily pre-reading and writing activities to prepare children for their Reception year.

Nursery classes, which are for children who are fully toilet trained and out of pull ups, commence at 7.45am until 12.15pm and children must be registered to attend 5 days per week. There is an early drop off and after school care programme available on request where children will engage in extra-curricular fun learning activities under the supervision of an experienced Early Learning professional.

Arabic Classes

Little Gems is proud to provide an optional comprehensive Arabic language programme for your child. Our Arabic programme is well reputed with a dedicated team and classrooms that prepare children streaming into the top Arabic schools in Bahrain.

Students aged 2 years and above are invited to attend spoken Arabic lessons five times a week for Pre-Nursery (2 to 3 year old) and Nursery (3 to 4 year old) students.
