Treasures of Life

At Seashells Nursery, we believe children are treasures of life, and that is the corner stone of our philosophy.

The Treasured Children:

Like Seashells, we believe that children are beautiful, unique, delicate and a true treasure of life. Through play and fun activities, in our safe and well supervised environment, we strive to nurture and develop every “treasure” to its fullest. The children’s growth is supported socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Learning through play is encouraged by the children making choices, creating, improvising and communicating.

Treasured Parents:

Parents are children’s first and most enduring educators and it is through our partnership that we can build on the children’s development. All parents are made to feel welcome, valued and necessary through a range of opportunities for collaboration. We have an open door policy and encourage regular communication between teachers and parents.

Staff Treasures:

The Seashells Nursery staff is an enthusiastic, well experienced, qualified and motivated team. All classes have a teacher and teacher’s assistant, our nurse is on duty at all time and there is a fully equipped nurse’s clinic, approved by the department of health.

The afterschool activities are provided by UAE licensed and trained coaches or teachers.

Treasuring our Environment:

Providing a healthy environment at the nursery is essential. Healthy habits are encouraged on a daily basis, as well as some strict policies which ensure a clean and green atmosphere. Proper handwashing techniques and a thorough nurse policy ensures that we maintain healthy classrooms. The children are proud to bring in only healthy snacks, and daily exercise is scheduled in for all the children. Seashells nursery is working towards running the facility in an environmentally friendly manner. For example, we use "green" cleaning products to offer the children a chemical free environment. In addition, the children at the nursery are encouraged to make Greener choices on a daily basis.


Seashells nursery is registered, approved and fully complies with the regulations of the ministry of labor and Social Affairs and the Dubai municipality health department.

Activities and Facilities

Seashells Nursery accepts children starting at the age of 15months old (and walking). Children that join our pre-KG/FS1 classes need to be 3 years old by September 1st of that academic year. Our curriculum is internationally inspired, and is taught via monthly themes. The day is scheduled in 30minute sessions, which allows for a variety of activities each day.

In addition to the regular nursery activities, children also have the opportunity to enjoy the following class activities:

The spacious classrooms allow many different activities to run simultaneously and the day is structured so that the children get used to a daily routine that includes snack time, free play, organized activity, arts and crafts and outdoor play.

The nursery has 8 outdoor play areas. These areas are shaded, with soft tile flooring and each incorporates a theme, allowing for more learning through play.

Three indoor play areas, a library room, an activity room and an indoor gym provide the children with even more areas to explore.

Seashells nursery also organizes fieldtrips to various destinations in Dubai for the children and parents to enjoy together.

After school activities are offered at the facility between 12:30pm and 2pm. These include soccer, gymnastics, playball and languages.

The annual Special Events, are a fun time for children, parents and staff. These include concerts, art exhibits, sports days, UAE day celebrations, and many more.
