Redwood Montessori Nursery in Dubai was awarded its third accreditation by the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board on Wednesday, 14th November 2018. MEAB is the frontrunner in Montessori accreditation that recognizes the quality of education being delivered by Montessori schools.
MEAB is a world leader in Montessori accreditation
Launched in 2008, with the assistance of the British Accreditation Council and Independent Schools Inspectorate, MEAB is a world leader in Montessori accreditation. The Award is an acknowledgement of settings’ achievements in identifying and delivering Montessori best practice for the children that they care for. This is the third time in succession that Redwood Garhoud has received the Award and means that their setting is now accredited for the next four years.
Redwood Montessori Delivers Quality Montessori Education
The Award recognises the hard work and commitment of all the teachers and support staff in delivering quality Montessori education.
Mirna Bdeir, the nursery manager said “Redwood Montessori is proud to be accredited by the most prominent accreditation organisation. We regard accreditation as part of an on-going and continuous cycle of improvement, which is driven by our desire to provide an outstanding Montessori education for our children.” We were the first to receive this accreditation back on 2011, and we are the only accredited Montessori in Dubai. We are delighted that our efforts are recognised and valued.”
The accreditation means that the nursery has qualified Montessori staff, well-resourced Montessori classrooms, the Montessori ethos runs throughout the prepared environment, a three-hour daily work cycle for children to make choices in their learning, a focus on children’s independence and a strong partnership working with parents.
There are clearly defined learning areas: materials for everyday living, education of the senses, mathematics, language, cultural, creativity and music which are reflected inside and also in the outside environment.
The emphasis on personal, social and emotional development is one of the core of a child’s well-being at our setting. Children are well known by the directresses who support them, and they are treated with respect, courtesy and warmth.
School Accreditation Report Highlights
Here are a few highlights from our school accreditation report from the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board:
To quote: “the Redwood nursery offers high-quality Montessori practice to all children attending and their families. Their commitment to following the child is evident in the daily life of the nursery and enables the children to lead their own learning. It is also evident in all the setting ‘s documentation and regular communications to parents.”
Redwood Garhoud is Kids First Group’s second Montessori facility in Dubai and fifth to open in the UAE, with three operating nurseries in the capital and is the twelfth in Kids First Group’s growing portfolio, which also includes nurseries such as Ladybird, Odyssey, Kids Cottage, Willow Children’s Nurseries; and Tots Corner Nursery in Doha.
