Ready For School
Making the right choice of the right curriculum and the right school after Nursery is a very big decision. We extend our unconditional help and support with this journey of yours and can provide you with a list of schools and different curriculums within the community along with the additional related information. It is indeed a big step in your child’s life.
At Little Oxford Nursery and Day Care, we prepare children for ‘big school’. This means
that children may remain within our Nurseries throughout their fourth year - children can join the Nursery when their age is less than four years at the beginning of September.We believe that children need time to be children and we support their transition into school through a balance of love in a familiar environment with new confidence building challenges. In this final year of Nursery, the pace accelerates, as our upcoming graduates get ready for ‘big school’, in an environment that supports this young age.
Keeping Your Child In Nursery For The Final Year Is Very Beneficial. The Reasons Being:
Flexible Timings – Your child's Nursery day can be until 7:00p.m.
Teacher to Child Ratios – Your child will continue in environment where the ratios are higher.
Social, Emotional and Physical Confidence – Your child will be prepared for his or her specific ‘big School’ curriculum holistically - The American Curriculum, The English National Curriculum, The Indian Curriculum and The International Baccalaureate.
School Referral Letter – Your child will receive a referral letter from the Nursery highlighting his/her readiness to be accepted into an equivalent age at ‘big school.’
Arabic Lessons – Your child will learn the basic Arabic language through the learning of the alphabet, numbers, songs and nasheeds.
Extra Curricular Activities – Your child will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities including Stage Performances and Recitals.
Community Events and Trips – Your child will have the opportunity to participate in the various Nursery organized events and outings such as the trip to Al Hamra Mall and more.
Graduation – Your child will graduate at the completion of their final year at the Nursery. The children eligible for attending the Graduation Ceremony are children who by their age are no longer eligible to remain within the Nursery for an additional year. Your child must have attended at least two terms to be eligible to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.
