“This work that we are undertaking in the area of early years education, is crucial. We will be providing a good training programme for teachers and future leaders, working with children of all nationalities up to the age of eight years, with the aim of integrating the cultures of Arabia,” said Dr Tariq Kashmiri, Chief Executive Officer at the Arabian Child.

“We will be learning from the best international systems to educate our own community and inspire them to create our own programme.
