E-Learning

As nurseries were closed across the UAE from 1st March 2020, to restrict the spread of coronavirus, Step By Step Nursery immediately started working towards an alternative platform for early years education. We launched and have been successfully running our E-Learning Programme, with interactive sessions and video lessons, which have helped parents maintain a schedule for the little ones and continue their learning at home.

Nursery Reopening


On 27th August 2020, the Ministry of Education and the National Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Authority announced that nurseries in the UAE would be allowed to reopen in October 2020 based on their safety preparedness.
After receiving specific guidelines from the authorities, our team has been actively working to ensure that the nursery is a safe space for children to come back to.
Our team members have undergone various online trainings related to the rules and regulations for safeguarding children while supporting their learning and development.
During Autumn Term, we will be operating at limited capacity in order to maintain maximum physical distance, with the children cared for in small groups or “bubbles”. Our detailed reopening plans have been submitted to the Ministry of Education / ADEK and the reopening date will be announced after approval.
