I have a rule with my blog that I never talk about where my boys go to school or nursery. It just doesn’t seem fair to them when I am not with them.
This is why I am very excited to tell you about the wonderful nursery that Stanley went to for over 2 years – as now he’s left to go to school (and Wilfred is elsewhere, as we have moved house), I can finally rave about it!
Toddler Town British Nursery has two locations – JBR Amwaj and Jumeirah. Stanley attended the original premises in the JBR, which was ideal as it was just a walk for us then (although we did park underneath during the summer months). The facilities were brilliant – with a beautiful library as you walked in, a role play room that Stanley loved playing in, lovely toys in all the classrooms, and several covered play areas with shade. It was the perfect environment for a little person and we all felt very comfortable from the moment we walked inside.
It’s the warmth of the place that I really wanted to tell you about. Every day, Stanley ran into his teacher’s arms. It was the most reassuring thing as a parent. And before we even reached the classroom, we said hello to managers, receptionists, and TA’s as they walked past – it honestly felt like a big family, which is why we were both so sad to leave last June (we shed more than a few tears on that last day).
It gets even better – as since Stanley attended the JBR branch, Toddler Town British Nursery now has a second site in Jumeirah (Safa) – and the facilities are even more impressive. The nursery has the same warm, nurturing feel – but the fact they have more space means there are even more facilities.
The outside area is giant, with the most amazing playground (Stanley would’ve loved it!), car track area, sandpit with rows of wheelbarrows, and a lovely swimming pool (fully gated off for safety). Inside, there is a beautiful library, role-play rooms, sensory area, and soft play for little ones. You kind of have to see it to believe it – and I really recommend you head in for a tour.
And the good news is that if you do swing by the Jumeirah branch, you could win a seriously amazing prize! I was amazed to see that the nursery are giving away a whopping 50% off a full year’s nursery term fees! And all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is the following:
- Visit Toddler Town British Nursery Jumeirah Branch between 1-30 May (Sun-Thurs, 8.30am-5pm).
- Fill out a raffle coupon
- Keep your fingers crossed!
Three lucky winners will be chosen on 31st May – so good luck! And better still, every single person that enters will get 15% off their child’s first term at the nursery – so you really can’t lose!
I’ve copied below a Google map of the nursery’s location so you can swing by easily (lots of parking outside) and fill out your raffle coupon!
Thank you Toddler Town for the first two years of Stanley’s education – we made a very, very good choice.
