Why Choose Us?

Your Child’s Home from Home

We understand the vital role that the environment plays in supporting children’s early learning journey. Our nurseries are houses that have been carefully curated to feel homely, cozy and familiar with natural materials and earthy tones that stimulate your child whilst allowing them to focus and feel safe.

Educational Offering

We use the New EYFS for England alongside a Reggio Emilia inspired approach to support your child to lead their own learning with our expert educators acting as collaborators and guides and the environment offering support, challenge and extending learning accordingly.

Expert Educators

Our expert educators scaffold the learning for your child through the use of open questioning, open-ended resources and provocations that spark curiosity and interest. At Step by Step Nursery we embrace the difference in every child and tailor make the curriculum based on individual needs.

Flexibility and Convenience

Offering a bus service, catering options and flexible timings, our personable teams cater to our family’s needs by understanding that life with little ones does not always run in straight lines and sometimes we all need to be responsive in the moment.

English as an Additional Language

We understand how daunting a new environment can be, particularly for EAL children. Our teachers share daily routines and associated key words that parents can practice at home with their child to assist settling in.

UAE Culture and Heritage and Third Culture Kids

We are proud of our positioning in Dubai and the UAE and ensure that our projects reflect our context wherever possible. For example, our play areas feature items from the local culture including Arab family dolls and houses. We learn about local festivals, architecture, landscapes and culture and embrace the Arabic language at every opportunity. We know that for many third culture kids, the UAE is the only home they have ever known and so we explore what it means to call this great nation home.

Music and Movement Programme

We offer twice weekly movement sessions to every class with our specialist teacher who focuses on the development of gross motor skills including balance, coordination, spatial awareness and body control. Since the COVID recovery we believe even more so in the need for active learning to keep our children moving and developing core body functions.

SBS layan provide a friendly atmosphere for all kids where they can learn and grow. All SBS teachers and workers are reliable, respectful, caring, and fun-loving. SBS is truly the best! Their ingenious methods of teaching counting, arts and crafts, and reading are outstanding 👍 I’m seeing great improvement in my daughter cognitive and social development. SBS taught us to celebrate every accomplishment, and given us so many reasons to be proud.
