- Also called Kids Academy's British Kindergarten Dubai (or Abu Dhabi), perhaps to avoid confusion with the unrelated Kids Academy at Dubai International School (DIS).

- Founder of Kids Academy Childcare is Sue Jones. UAE franchise partner is Faraj Bin Hamoodah Holdings. Chairman of Kids Academy Childcare UAE is Khalifa Faraj Bin Hamoodah.
- Head's name, postal address, fax number, not supplied.
- KA Head Office website at www.kids-academy.ae.
- Location map supplied shows Villa 82, Al Shaari Street (corner 29C and 32B Streets if looking at maps with the old system), Jumeirah 3. Near the Al Safa Park and Shop Center.
03 December 2014
- KA announced the opening (again) of their new Jumeirah branch: "We are proud to announce the launch of our newest branch in Jumeirah." (email). Previously they said it would open April 2014, then in May 2014 they said it would open in September 2014, then in September 2014 they said they were open (classes started 07 Sep 2014?). Registrations and enrolment open now (or again) for January 2015. Good luck and don't be too alarmed, it's normal for new places in Dubai to announce several different opening dates, although not so common to announce a new opening date after being opened.
- Email address updated to email@example.com. Previously firstname.lastname@example.org for KA head office but emails sent to that address are ignored.
- FB page at facebook.com/MyKidsAcademyUAE, not facebook.com/KidsAcademyUAE (forwards to facebook.com/Kidsacademy.uae) which is for the other (unrelated) Kids Academy in Dubai at DIS.
- But confusingly, Twitter page at twitter.com/KidsAcademyUAE is for the Kids Academy nursery chain, not the UAE Kids Academy at Dubai International School (which doesn't have a Twitter page).
29 May 2014
- Kid's Academy Jumeirah branch didn't open in April 2014, but they announced they were "Set to open during the summer of 2014 ahead of the autumn term" or "Set to officially open in September". Registrations are open for classes starting in September 2014.
28 February 2014
- KA announced that the new Jumeirah branch was "due to open in April this year", and were accepting registrations.
- Jumeirah location email not provided, KA head office or general email is email@example.com, tel +971-2-5577636, location Bin Hamoodah Tower, Abu Dhabi.
- Curiously the press release or announcement said Kids Academy "... will be set apart from the competition by offering an excellent EYFS curriculum, fantastic newly furnished rooms for children aged 3 months to 4 years, food prepared by nutritional expert standards, wonderful outdoor learn and play area ..." implying that other nurseries in Jumeirah didn't have an excellent EYFS curriculum, new facilities, outdoor play areas, and nutritional food. There are several that do have all those features.
11 January 2014 review
- A new Kids Academy will open April 2014 in Jumeirah 3. In the same location as KinderKamer Dubai kindergarten nursery according to map provided. Unknown if ownership has changed or just the name.
- Fees information not supplied. 2014 fees for Abu Dhabi KA nurseries are about AED 18,000-51,000 which might or might not give an indication of Dubai fee structure.
- Open Day for Kids Academy Jumeirah on Saturday 12 April 2014 from 1000-1400.
- Website also at jumeirah.kids-academy.ae. Landline contact not available yet unless it remains the same as the Kinder Kamer tel number (+971-4-394 3535). Head's name, PO Box, not provided.
- More KA nurseries planned in Dubai? Unconfirmed information, a comment seen that KA plan to open 4 new nurseries in Dubai and Al Ain in 2014 but source unknown.
11 August 2011 review
- Kids Academy UK plans to open nurseries in the UAE. A Dubai location was not specifically mentioned, but Dubai is listed on the KA website. Unknown when or where a Dubai nursery will open.
- Presumably KA-Dubai is not related to the Kids Academy UAE that is in operation at Dubai International School in Al Quoz.
