More than 20,000 students between the age of 45 days to 6 years of different nationalities enrolled in 226 early childhood centres across Dubai.
While focusing on cultural diversity and a vibrant education ecosystem, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) reported on Friday that pre-schoolers are supported by more than 1,300 teachers and 1,900 teaching assistants at early childhood centres.
The reports provided by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) offer in-depth statistics and elements of Dubai’s private premature childhood education and care sector for the first time.
In a statement, Dr Abdulla Al-Karam, director-general of KHDA, stated, “Dubai is a future-focused city, and its future lies in cultivating our children’s wellbeing, their sense of wonder and their love of learning.”
In addition, Dr Abdulla Al-Karam said, “ECCs benefit from enrolment growth; parents benefit from the relaxation of the mind that their kids are being watched for and nurtured, and children benefit from learning and playing in a positive and supportive environment.”
He said everyone benefits when parents in Dubai have access to high-quality education for their children.
According to the reports by WAM, Parents of young children can choose from 13 different early childhood curricula currently offered by Dubai’s ECCs.
Dr Abdulla Al-Karam, director-general of KHDA, said, “We want to build a quality-driven and diverse early childhood education and care sector to encourage even more parents to give their children a happy and beneficial learning experience.”
