Why Choose Us?

Your Child’s Home Away 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, the best nursery in Dubai, we embrace the difference in every child and tailor make the curriculum based on individual needs.

Flexibility and Convenience

The Best Nursery in Dubai, 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. At Step by Step, the best Nursery in Dubai, 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.

I am delighted to share my wonderful experience with Step by Step Nursery in Mirdif. As a parent, finding a nurturing and supportive environment for my child's early education was of paramount importance, and I can say without hesitation that this nursery has exceeded my expectations.

"Our two kids went to Step by Step nursery and I would say that was the best choice we could make. It’s a very special place for little ones to be and grow. The nursery team, absolutely all of them gave our kids so much love, attention, care, so many efforts and just warmth, what little people need so much. Our kids both enjoyed every day spent there and even after finishing the nursery they still remember it and asking to go back. One place I would definitely recommend and absolutely trust! PS: A very happy parent :)"

I would like to express my thanks to everyone in Step by Step Nursery, especially to my son's teacher Ms Debra and Ms Analee. They have had such a positive influence on my son and helped him grow so much in the past six months. His language skills boomed - he couldn't speak a word of English before he started, also his pre-writting and social skills developed substantially. I have to say how much he likes the open play area, which is huge, and is happy to come to nursery every day. It was such a stimulating experience for him. I have to say he bonded very well with his teacher, Ms Debra, who he will miss so much. I felt safe leaving him with her, knowing she will take really good care of him and help him be excepted and nurtured.

Everything about this nursery is beyond wonderful! The staff, the management, the teachers! The way they interact with the kids, the activities they do, their approach is amazing. When you see your child who is attached to you run towards his teacher every single day and look the happiest while arriving to school you know he’s in the right place. ❤️
