  • Emirates British Nursery plans to open a new nursery school in Dubai Motor City in early 2011?
  • Facilities and activities include discovery room, garden area, music room, sandpit, soft play room, swimming pool (covered), water play.
  • EBN website no longer available at www.ebninfo.ae, replaced by www.emiratesbritishnursery.com.
  • Old email address was ebn@emirates.net.ae, might still work, also try ebn@eim.ae?
  • Postal address changed from PO Box 894 to PO Box 78260? PO Box 894 belongs to Sun and Sand Sport LLC in Dubai according to the UAE Yellow Pages. But some other sources list EBN address as PO Box 894. Correct postal address not confirmed or supplied.
  • Report in The National newspaper 13 March 2010 said The Emirates British Nursery opens from 7.30am, and children can take classes until 12pm, 3pm or 5.30pm. Fees depend on what time they are picked up, and average about Dh8,900 a term for the 7.30am to 3pm session. Terms last from 12 to 16 weeks.
