The American School of Dubai (ASD) hosted a formal groundbreaking ceremony in Dubai recently to mark the construction of a new purpose-built facility which will house a world-class Early Learning Center (ELC) inspired by Reggio Emilia.
This student-centred and constructivist approach to learning fosters respect, responsibility, and community through self-discovery and experiential learning. 
The ASD Board of Trustees, Superintendent Dr. Paul Richards, and Grade K1 students were on hand during the groundbreaking. 
ASD is a non-profit school known for its excellence in American education, serving Dubai parents and their children since 1966.
ASD's reputation is built on its welcoming community and its inclusive learning environment. The ELC will be an exciting addition to the 23-acre campus and an expansion to ASD's award-winning programmes.
2020 represents the first time ASD will offer a pre-K programme for three-year-olds, laying the foundation to prepare future-ready students.
