My daughter has been attending Step by Step for the past 3 months and we are very happy with her progress. She loves to go to her nursery and enjoys her time there.”

We have been very happy with the nursery, teachers and admin staff, but most importantly Neels has always gone and left school with a smile on his face. So a big thank you to the team.”

Thank you Miss Lucy, Miss Kelly and all the girls who work with Liam in the Oasis class. He loves coming to nursery! We are thrilled with his first report and know only too well how much time and effort goes into writing them. The photo booth will be brought home to the grandparents too!”

My 3 year old daughter joined Step by Step nursery in Layan Community, Dubailand after the Spring Break of 2017. She is the youngest of two sisters and unlike her big sister, she was very shy, not very talkative and would suffer from separation anxiety when away from me.

Despite her having been at another nursery for two terms, it was after she started at Step by Step, that I noticed a significant and almost immediate change in her behaviour. She started coming home wanting to talk about what happened in class, referring to her teachers and friends in vivid and expressive ways. In a short time, she was quickly able to count to ten and understand sequences and value. At nursery, she was eating all her food (which had previously been an issue) and was very proud to let me know she had done so! At the weekends, she would wake up asking to go to nursery.

As a mother of two kids, who has experienced nurseries in the UK, Ireland and Dubai, I can honestly say that Step by Step has far exceeded my expectations. The team there has welcomed my daughter with open arms and nurtured her to be confident, articulate and independent – in a very short period of time.

In addition to the merits around the learning curriculum and delivery, all the staff are extremely friendly and accessible. Although I have not always been able to drop my daughter to nursery in person, I have felt very connected to the whole team and I get lots of feedback and communications – these things are important to me. I highly recommend the nursery to any parents looking for the right environment and carers for their little ones.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the nursery team for providing excellent services and educational programs that played a role in the growth of my children and helped shape their personalities. Through the time my kids psent at the nursery they became very independent, expressive and able to communicate with others freely which am sure will contribute to the success of their next educational level.”

Special thanks to Miss Nikki. Both of my children have attended Ms Nikki’s Raindrops class – my daughter Brooklyn nearly 3 years ago and my son Danny is currently in her class. They both love her and she remains one of Brooklyn’s favourite teachers. Brooklyn looks forward to her half days at her “big school” so she can go to Danny’s class to see Ms.Nikki. Danny often asks me “am I going to school tomorrow with Ms.Nikki?” He absolutely adores her.

Whether it’s her creative classroom displays, messy play outside on the patio or teaching the children weekly topics; her dedication to her students stands out. I just want her to know that I appreciate her and can see she is truly passionate about her job. Ms.Nikki s a great example of how a teacher should be – making an impact. I love that my children love school and I’m grateful for teachers that make schools great!”

We cannot thank you enough for being there for our family and all the time during our relocation and adjusting period to Dubai.

Our son Devin was 21 months old when he started the nursery, just after two months after moving to Dubai. He was facing so many challenges like getting used to his new environment, learning to communicate in two languages, the climate and so on.

With the help of Step by Step’s genuine, welcoming nature and his amazing teachers he settled in no time. Within weeks he was already attending the nursery 5 days a week from 8am-6pm!

As working parents like us, it is priceless to know our son was in a safe, fun, creative yet an education oriented environment.

It was a great pleasure watching him learn new skills among many other things each and every day. We highly appreciate the communication between the staff and parents in person and via daily reports. That makes us feel never missing a moment in his life. Even though we have a full time nanny nowadays we want our son to continue education at SDB next semester also,. Many thanks from the bottom of our hearts again for being our family away from home.”

We just want to say that we’re very happy about our decision to choose Step by Step for Alejandra’s nursery year. From start to finish we’ve been pleased with every aspect of this process, beit communications, our child’s well being and teaching. The best proof of why we all loved Step by Step is a non-refutable one: During our last holiday Alejandra started saying that she really wanted to go see Ms Katrina. The fact that she was still looking forward to going to the nursery speaks volumes of how much she has enjoyed this past year. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

Returning to work with a 5 month old baby is the day every parent dreads, but Step by Step made it so easy for me. Every day Connor is in a safe, friendly and fun environment where he receives the care and support needed to grow and progress. He enters nursery with a smile and he is still smiling when we collect him. Thank you to all of the amazing staff for such a great first year. Your constant care, flexibility and support has been outstanding.
