Choosing the right nursery or daycare for your child can be daunting, as you want to ensure that your child will be safe, happy, and well-cared for a while you are away. Here are a few things to consider when selecting a nursery or daycare:

Location: Is the nursery or daycare conveniently located for your daily routine? It may be inconvenient for drop-offs and pick-ups if it is too far away.

Little Academy Nursery is conveniently located just off The Doha Express Way, which connects major parts of the city. This makes it easy for parents to drop off and pick up their children at the nursery, regardless of where they come from.

Safety: Is the facility clean and well-maintained? Are there appropriate safety measures in place, such as fire exits and emergency plans?

At Little Academy Nursery, the safety and well-being of our students is our number one concern. To ensure the safety of all our students, every classroom in our facility is equipped with an emergency exit door that leads directly to the outdoor area. We also conduct regular fire drills and have a fire extinguisher in every room and hallway. In addition, we have a dedicated cleaner who works to keep the facility clean and well-maintained, and air purifiers in every classroom to ensure that the air quality is healthy and safe for our students. We take every precaution to ensure the safety of our students at all times.

Staff: What is the staff-to-child ratio at the nursery or daycare? Is the staff trained and qualified? How much experience do they have working with young children?

At Little Academy Nursery, we maintain the required staff-to-child ratios to ensure that every child receives the attention and care they need. Our staff are all Early Childhood Education specialists or hold an equivalent degree, and we have extensive experience working with young children. In addition, all our staff is CPR certified to ensure that they are prepared to handle any emergency situation. We are committed to providing the best care and education for your child, and our highly qualified and experienced staff are a key part of that commitment.

In addition to their qualifications and experience, all Little Academy Nursery staff regularly participate in Continued Professional Training (CPD) to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in Early Childhood Education. This can include in-house training delivered by professionals in the field or online courses. We believe that it is important to continuously learn and grow as educators, and our staff is dedicated to providing the best care and education possible for your child. Participating in CPD ensures that our staff has the knowledge and skills to provide the best possible care for your child.

Programs and activities: What types of activities and programs does the nursery or daycare offer? Are they age-appropriate and stimulating for your child?

At Little Academy Nursery, we are committed to providing the best education and care for your child. Our curriculum is based on the American STEAM approach and is designed to be engaging and interactive, using a play-based approach to learning. All of our activities are age-appropriate and designed to help your child learn and grow.

In addition to our core curriculum, we also offer a variety of fun extracurricular activities, both indoors and outdoors. These include sports like football and ballet, as well as other activities that help children learn and have fun. All of our extracurricular activities are led by professionals who are passionate about what they do.

We believe education should be fun and engaging, and we strive to create a warm, welcoming environment where children can learn and grow. We hope you will consider choosing Little Academy Nursery for your child’s education and care.

Communication: How does the nursery or daycare communicate with parents about their child’s day and progress? Is there an open-door policy for parents to visit and observe their child during the day?

At Little Academy Nursery, we understand the importance of keeping you informed about your child’s day and progress. That’s why we use a professional communication app from the United States to keep you updated about every detail of your child’s day.

To ensure the safety and privacy of all our students, we create a dedicated email ID for each child. This allows you to access information about your child’s day securely and privately. You can see what your child has been doing, what they have eaten, and other important details about their day.

In addition to our communication app, we also operate an open-door policy for parents. This means that you are always welcome to visit the nursery and observe your child during the day. We have cameras in every room that are continuously recording, so you can have peace of mind knowing that your child is safe and well-cared for a while you are away.

We hope this information is helpful, and we look forward to working with you to ensure that your child has the best possible experience at Little Academy Nursery.

Fees and policies: What are the fees for the nursery or daycare, and are there any additional charges for things like extracurricular activities or late pick-ups? What is the policy for sick children and make-up days?

At Little Academy Nursery, we have clear Policies and Procedures to ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently. Our fee policy is clearly spelled out in these documents, and there are no hidden charges or fees.

The fees for our nursery include all core educational programs and extracurricular activities like sports and music. There are no additional charges for these activities. We have a late pick-up fee to encourage timely pick-ups, but we do not charge extra for extended hours.

Please note that we do not offer make-up days for missed days due to illness or other absences. If your child cannot attend the nursery for any reason, the fees for that day will not be refunded.
We hope this information is helpful, and we look forward to working with you to provide the best possible care and education for your child.
