Raise a Confident Child

Your child’s experiences between birth and age five have the greatest impact on the outcome of their success in life. A fun, safe and nurturing environment at the nursery is important to ensure your child has the best start in life.
Our carefully crafted program is based on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum. This ensures your child’s ‘school readiness’ for any English speaking school, in England or internationally.

High quality early learning provides the foundation for children to become self-reliant, emotionally strong, responsible members of their community.

At our nurseries, your child will gain a broad range of knowledge and skills to set them up for future success through school and life. We’re passionate about early childhood education, and would love to show you everything our nurseries can offer your child.

Teaching to Suit Your Child’s Learning Style
Yellow Submarine nurseries offer fun and engaging environments for children to discover how they learn best.

Children have zones to explore art, theatre, music, dance, reading and writing. Our highly trained staff support children at each stage of learning.

The curriculum is crafted to nurture every aspect of children’s growth: from knowledge, to socialisation, to emotional intelligence and self-respect.

“Very Engaged, Kind And Fun”
“We have been lucky enough to send two of our children to Yellow Submarine Nursery Saadiyat and they have enjoyed every day.

The Teachers are very engaged, kind and fun - and both kids settled in easily from day one.
We get regular thorough reports on their progress as well as daily updates on their activities.

We’ve been very happy with our experience at Yellow Submarine Nursery.”

Age Groups
Select the age group of your child to see how we help them develop at each stage of their Yellow Submarine nursery time.
An Introduction To The World
It’s vital for babies to have a safe & friendly introduction to the world outside home.

Children at this age are formulating their first impressions of the world, and have the ability to analyse whether they will be encouraged to make independent decisions and form their own opinions.

We take extra care at Yellow Submarine Nursery to ensure kids settle in and feel 100% comfortable in their new environment.

We also provide parents with detailed daily reports so they know exactly how their child is progressing.
Helping Your Child Grow In Confidence
In this stage, children take their first steps into the world of learning. This is when we prepare the ground for your child to become a lifelong learner and academically able.

We help children grow in several key areas. These are communication, language, emotional intelligence, literacy, mathematics, and physical coordination.

At this stage, we start fun exercises to introduce your child to words, numbers and problem solving. Our approach is engaging and enjoyable, helping your child learn with ease.
Advance Your Child’s Language Skills & Cognition
This age range is when children are developing their verbal skills and pattern recognition.

Yellow Submarine teachers streamline language development. We do this through storytelling, role-playing, and dramatic play.

Toddlers improve their pattern recognition through sorting, grouping and classifying objects.

Our toddlers experience an environment that’s set up for them to thrive and rapidly grow their cognitive skills.
Growing Self-reliance & Emotional Resilience
Children at this age are highly mobile and into exploring their environment. At Yellow Submarine, they’re encouraged to extend themselves in all directions to learn and grow.

This age group of children engages in singing, dancing, story telling, and role-playing to build emotional intelligence

They develop motor skills through building blocks, sand play, and planting. They increase cognition through sorting objects, learning to group & classify things, and puzzles.
Getting ‘School Ready’
Whether you’re staying in the UAE or travelling to another country, your child will be prepared to enter any English speaking school.

Early childhood education is all about helping children discover what they love to learn about. Our teachers are there to foster your child’s creativity and self-sufficiency.

With the UK EYFS curriculum, our students are already well on their way to literacy and foundational maths.

This is the kind of foundation in learning that will set them up for a lifetime of success.
Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years. A child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances.

A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Quality early learning provides the foundation for children to develop their natural abilities.

Yellow Submarine Nursery's program is based on the UK Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). EYFS sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children develop well and stay healthy and safe.

EYFS gives children the right foundation for future progress in school and throughout their adult life.

Communication and language development

Children in our nurseries experience a rich language environment. They develop their confidence by learning to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Yellow Submarine Nurseries have qualified and caring teachers who host circle time every day. This is where all the children can sit together and either listen to a story, directions for an activity, have questions time, or just talk!

Physical development

Young children learn best when they're active. They develop coordination and control through movement. Children at our nursery also receive help to make healthy choices in relation to food.

Our outdoor play area at Yellow Submarine Nursery has a bridge for balance and stairs for motor skills. A slide, carousel and swing help with coordination. We can create an obstacle course, play football, or have a picnic!

Personal, social and emotional development

Our teachers help children to develop a positive sense of themselves. They learn to form good relationships and develop respect for others. Children in our care develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings. We do exercises to help children understand appropriate behaviour in groups. Students learn to have confidence in their own abilities.

Personal, social and emotional development is learnt throughout the day. We encourage children in our care to express themselves. This helps them build self-esteem, gain confidence, and interact with others.

Literacy development

Literacy is the foundation of learning, and we have a proven method to teach it. We show children how to link sounds and letters very early so they can begin to read and write. Children interact with a wide range of reading materials to ignite their interest. With this system, children develop a love of reading and writing that will set them up for academic achievement in the future.
“Nursery Filled With Life, Laughter And Kindness”
“YSN is really a cozy home away from home and my daughter absolutely loves it there. She has thrived since starting and I believe it’s the absolute best environment for her.

The energy at the morning drop is one of love and encouragement.

The staff are engaging, enthusiastic and ready to help our little people learn. The day is structured and tailored to their needs.

My daughter runs to the door screaming “my school, my school MY SCHOOL!” A nursery filled with life, laughter and kindness. I highly recommend YSN to any parent/guardian. My child is in safe hands.”

Partnering with Parents
At Yellow Submarine, we work closely with parents to ensure their child is growing and learning in an optmial way.

We want parents to feel welcome in the nursery and fully involved with their child’s progress.

You’ll receive daily updates via our app for the youngest children. And you’ll be able to check on your child’s portfolio to stay up to date with everything they’re learning and doing.

When they first enrol, your child will receive all the help necessary to settle them securely into the nursery.

We understand that many parents in the UAE are working part-time or full-time. To support them, we offer flexible time schedules.

This means you can drop off and pick up your child at any time between 7:30am - 5:30pm, Monday to Friday.
Parent communication on-the-go

Wouldn’t it be great to know what your child’s day is really like? To be kept up to date on the activities your child has engaged in, what food they have eaten, when they slept and even how many times they went to the toilet?

The Famly app sends out daily reports to parents containing around six photos a day of their child participating in the activities we have planned. The teachers carry out observations every two weeks and these are also shared on the app. Parents can send teachers messages and teachers can reply back.

Observations and photos from Famly are used to put together a learning journal of the child's time at the nursery. Messages are sent out for upcoming events at the nursery or when something important has to be communicated to the parent. Parents are alerted by receiving notifications on their phones.
At Yellow Submarine Nursery, all tuition fees are payable when the child first attends the nursery and are in accordance with the fee structure established by Kids First Group under the guidance of ADEK’s established School Fee Framework.

Sibling discounts – 5% and 10% savings

Upon registering a sibling, you will be rewarded with a 5% discount off the term fee for the older sibling. Once there is only one of the siblings attending nursery, the discount will be retracted. In case of triplets, you will be rewarded 10% discount off the term fee.

Online early-bird registration discount — 10% saving

When registering your child online during an early-bird offer at any Yellow Submarine Nursery, you will be rewarded with a 10% discount off the term fee.
