School Timings and Term Dates


Working hours

The standard hours for children are 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. daily, Sunday to Thursday. This is supplemented by an optional morning creche (7:00 to 8:00 a.m.) and an afternoon creche (2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) for those seeking extended hours.

Annual calendar

The nursery approximately follows the academic terms used by international schools in Abu Dhabi, so is open from September to June divided in to three terms. We also close for public holidays (Eids, National Day etc.). Details of planned holidays are available from Reception.

Summer school

The nursery is closed for July and August although, depending upon demand, a summer school is available to keep children active and entertained during the hot summer months. This programme is available to both registered students of the nursery and any children from the wider community (especially siblings). Details are available from Reception.
