ASD Breaks New Ground—Construction Commenced for Early Learning Center
Posted 04/02/2019 08:45PM

The American School of Dubai hosted a formal groundbreaking ceremony to mark the construction of a new purpose-built facility which will house a world-class Early Learning Center inspired by Reggio Emilia. This student-centered and constructivist approach to learning fosters respect, responsibility, and community through self-discovery and experiential learning.

The ASD Board of Trustees, Superintendent Dr. Paul Richards, and Grade K1 students were on hand during the groundbreaking on Tuesday, March 26.

ASD is a nonprofit school known for its excellence in American education, serving Dubai parents and their children since 1966. ASD’s reputation is built on its welcoming community and its inclusive learning environment. The ELC will be an exciting addition to the 23-acre campus and an expansion to ASD’s award-winning programs. 2020 represents the first time ASD will offer a pre-K program for three-year olds, laying the foundation to prepare future-ready students.

The new facility will offer imaginative spaces and the latest in educational innovation. The bottom floor will serve the needs of three-, four-, and five-year old learners, inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach and include creative areas to support early learner development.

The new facility will also host a center dedicated to nontraditional environments that will promote innovation, design, and entrepreneurship. This center will be developed through a community-wide master planning process with the involvement of the world’s most well-known technology companies. ASD has engaged Fielding Nair International, the globally recognized firm of educational architects, to lead this process.

The Early Learning Center is set to open in August 2020. With Kindergarten moving to the ELC in 2020, ASD will increase its capacity for enrollment in all grades, K-12. As the city of Dubai grows and thrives, ASD is poised to actively contribute to this environment.
