Key features

Purpose built

Our nursery was architect designed and specially constructed as a nursery school. This is a rarity in Qatar, giving us a brand-new building that ideally fits our needs.


The large outdoor play areas are extensively shaded, with quality rubberised safety flooring and play equipment imported from Europe. Our garden areas, sandpits, art stations and planting areas create a perfect outdoor learning space.


We have a large open-plan indoor area. This is ideal for arts and crafts, performances, role-play and group learning activities. It also serves as an airconditioned play area throughout the summer months.

Baby areas

Our youngest chidren are kept safely in their own dedicated areas throughout the day. This includes their own shaded outdoor play area, segregated from the older children.


All classrooms are filled with natural light and are equipped with wooden furniture imorted from Europe. Most classes have their own direct access to external areas, encouraging a blend of indoor/outdoor learning.


We are located on a safe, quiet residential compound where all entry/exit is carefully monitored and traffic/parking carefully controlled. Self-closing child-proof gates ensure the safety and security of your children at all times.
