The Early Learning Community at the American School of Dubai is a school for innovative early education. In a nurturing environment where all children learn and grow, we celebrate and respect children as resilient, capable, competent learners who are full of wonder and potential. We value the diversity of our community and appreciate the unique contributions of each family, culture, and background. In our Reggio-inspired play-based environment, children have authentic opportunities to work, play, socialize, create, and collaborate to make sense of their world. Through inquiry, discovery, exploration, and intentional teaching children engage in transdisciplinary experiences. The early learning experience provides children the opportunity to develop foundational skills that define themselves as innovative, empathetic, and global citizens.
