Notes about this directory and list of Abu Dhabi nurseries
  • To add a nursery in Abu Dhabi to this list, start a new topic in the Abu Dhabi nurseries forum. Or send details to education at dubaifaqs dot com.
  • Al Ain, Al Gharbia, and Ruwais nurseries are not included in this list.
  • Nursery name does not always indicate curriculum or predominant student nationality e.g. some "International" nurseries have mostly students of one nationality and/or a national curriculum.
  • Sort by tel number to group nurseries in the same geographical area (first 2 or 3 digits after country and city code indicate area).
  • Abu Dhabi nursery list and directory of nurseries which offer expatriate and UAE curriculums at pre-schools, creches, daycare or day care centers, and child care facilities including English, Australian, British, Canadian, French, Indian, Arabic preschools and kindergartens.
  • This list is filtered to include only nurseries which have a landline contact number, and make their fee schedule available on their website (or they have supplied us with a fee structure). This does not make it a list of recommended or best nurseries but it is a good place to start.
