  • SSN follows the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and like KidzLink and Little Gems, SSN say they are the first IPC nursery in Abu Dhabi, and a flagship nursery for the IPC curriculum. According to their website ... "Were proud to be the first nursery to introduce the IPC in Abu Dhabi, UAE. As a flagship school for the IPC, Smart Starters implements the IPC curriculum ...". Except Little Gemz opened a year before the other two so they probably really are the first IPC nursery in Abu Dhabi.
