  • Children attending Dovecote Nursery have priority for admission to Repton School and Foremarke School (for Dubai, not UK campuses). There is also a discount on assement fee and waiver of admission fee. The new Dovecote Green Primary School, also owned by EKI, was not included in the list provided of schools where Dovecote Nursery students get priority consideration.
  • Website updated to www.dovecotejumeirah.org, previously www.ekidovecote.org. Email and telephone contacts unchanged.
  • So far only one Dovcote Nursery operating in Dubai. No information supplied about other branches planned in the UAE (when or where) except a general statement that "Dovecote Nurseries will be opening in a number of convenient locations across Dubai."
  • Age range accepted is 1-4 yrs. EKI says the nurseries and childcare facilities are for children "from 1 to 4 years". Before December 2013 they said for children "from six months to 4 years".
  • British EYFS curriculum followed. Additional subjects include Arabic, French, Music.
  • Error in original location information. Nursery is in Umm Suqeim 2, not Umm Suqeim 3 (GPS coordinates given as 25.14932, 55.21052 are close enough). Unknown where incorrect location information and map came from. Old location informaton was given as 32A Street, Umm Suqeim 3, near Raffles International School and Kings Dubai.
  • [Source unknown] Phone number given as +971-4-4443424 is incorrect, along with opening times 0800-1300 (is nursery school hours, extended day care available after that). Phone number given as +971-4-4269393 is for Repton School in Dubai.

  • Applications for entry start from 14 January 2012. Nursery is expected to open by the end of January 2012. For admissions, contact email is admissions@ekidovecote.org and telephone Repton School in Dubai at +971-4-4269393.
  • More Dovecote Nurseries are planned in Dubai (name is not Dovecoat Nurseries).
  • Nursery Manager, Mena Press, was previously manager at Inglewood Day Nursery in the UK for 14 years? There appears to be another Mena Press who is (or was) nursery manager at Princess Montessori and British Nursery in Dubai (conflicting information supplied)?
  • Dovecote Nurseries in Dubai is not related to Dovecote Nurseries Ltd in Burton (South Wirral, Cheshire), UK (www.dovecotenurseries.com - and it's a horticultural establishment anyway); or Dovecote Primary and Nursery School in Nottingham, UK (www.dovecote.nottingham.sch.uk); or Dovecote Day Nursery in Banwen (Neath), UK.
