With over 30 international and national quality awards, British Orchard Nursery (BON) is the UAE’s most-awarded nursery chain in the GCC region with a singular focus on quality education and child development with over 30 convenient locations in the UK and UAE.

The chain of nurseries has been bestowed with the prestigious Dubai Quality Award and Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award for being not only a Centre for learning, but also for excellence, and is poised to deliver on that and more. A visual representation of UAE as a tree would find BON branches in almost every established community, skyrocketing children’s accessibility to quality learning within the whole nation.

The nursery follows the British Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) curriculum that focuses on seven-core areas of age-appropriate learning, with a well-developed and holistic curriculum that combines learning with fun and incorporates languages such as Mandarin and full-fledged curriculum for English, Arabic, Islamic and French studies, along with various extra-curricular activities like drumming, soccer clubs, music and dance and gymnastics. They are also the first nursery in the region for project-based learning with 100 per cent focus on child development and achievement as per the latest UK curriculum.

The nursery also supports children with behaviour and speech delays and offers a gifted and talented programme for the children of determination, supported by qualified and trained SENCO coordinators across all its 30 branches.

British Orchard Nursery prides itself on quality as they are the UAE’s first nursery to be certified for Quality Assurance with the latest ISO 9001 - 2015 standards, Health and Safety OHSAS 18001 and CSR and Environment Certified ISO 14001 standards. As the only ISO-certified nursery chain in the country, it delivers decades of condensed professional expertise from researchers in Early Childhood Care and Education in the UAE. World Class settings see highly trained staff impart knowledge and care to their wards.

“Since we are constantly reviewing and updating our curriculum in line with the global and country specific requirements and goals, our group’s educational philosophy, teacher training and curriculum standards in the UAE and UK are upgraded with innovation, in all areas to bring in child-initiated learning concepts.

“These focus on equipping children and teachers with right tools, which help them to pursue their passions and dreams using empowerment, imagination, and creativity,” further added Dr. Vandana Gandhi, CEO and Founder at British Orchard Nursery and Training Centre.

The quality and innovation awards received by BON are the testaments to its promise of elevating the education standards across the UAE. The pre-school has a teacher training center and encourages all aspiring women to get into the workforce and upgrade their skills. BON is dedicated to developing future change makers and innovators and strongly believes that when children are encouraged to tap into their potential to use their imagination, then magical creative thinking is developed.
