  • Little Gemz nursery Abu Dhabi name changed from Little Gems (date of change not supplied). Perhaps due to possible confusion or conflict with the GEMS Education kindergarten schools (Little GEMS International Preschools), which are not related to Little Gemz Pre-School Abu Dhabi.
  • Website domain changed from littlegems.ae.org to littlegemz.ae.org, email address from info@littlegems.ae.org to info@littlegemz.ae.org. Other information remains the same (we think).

  • Teaching language is English. Arabic is introduced in addition to French and Greek. Other languages will be available in the future (as an extra-curricular option?), might include German, Italian, Russian, Spanish.
  • Opening times 0700-1630. Additional hours might be possible (not confirmed)?
17 April 2012 review
  • Little Gems is the first IPC (International Preschool Curriculum) franchise nursery to open in Abu Dhabi, which sounds about right, we don't know of any others, and there's only one in Dubai so far that we've heard of - the Orange Tree Nursery. They have been awarded IPC franchise accreditation? Opening date was 20 March 2012 (press release 28 March 2012).
  • Little Gems website available at www.littlegems.ae.org (not www.littlegems.org.ae).
  • Also called Little Gems Nursery and Preschool (Pre-school) or kindergarten.
  • Facilities and resources include classrooms (with Promethean interactive learning boards, projectors and computers), science and nature lab, snack area, padded bike track, playground with soft landing area, sandpit, garden area, registered nurse on site and weekly doctor visits, air purifiers, field trips, library, CCTV internet enabled.
  • Additional contact mobile phone +971-50-1478939.
16 January 2012 review
  • Little Gems Nursery and preschool is a new childcare facility in Abu Dhabi? Information from job advertisements, nothing further supplied (except a mobile number if you want a job - tel +971-55-5811725).
  • Opening date not supplied (job ad said "opening soon"). Foundation date entered as April 2012 as a wild guess to include nursery in list of new nurseries in Abu Dhabi.
  • Unknown if the name means it is part of the GEMS Education group of schools (we're guessing it isn't - wasn't found on the GEMS Schools website).
  • Also unknown if there is any connection to the Little Gems Pre-School in Manama, Bahrain (or the many other Little Gems in Oman, UK, South Africa, ...).
