  • Location (new for September 2011): Villa 9, Street 29, Al Manara, off Sheikh Zayed Road beach side (opposite Times Square Shopping Mall). Old location in Jumeirah, between Dubai Zoo and Mercato shopping mall, on street 24B, at corner with 65A street in Jumeirah 1? Nothing there now (literally, just sand).
Nursery Managers
  • Helen Taylor Shaw (Principal) - from Sep 2012?
  • Penny Oubre (Penny Smither) (Head Teacher) - from 2008?
08 November 2012 - new Tiny Home nursery school
  • Press release announced "Tiny Home Montessori Nursery opens in Jumeirah, Dubai". The headmistress, Ms Helen Taylor Shaw, said "We look forward to parents coming in at our Open Day on November 10 at our new premises", referring to THN relocating "close to Emirates International School, in Jumeirah 3", not a new branch.
  • Open Day timings not given. Location details and contact information not provided, however the nursery already relocated in September 2011? Unless the move was delayed?
  • Emirates International School is in Umm Al Sheif community. Previous new location of THN is in Al Manara, not Jumeirah 3. Al Manara is other side of Al Wasl Rd from Umm Suqeim 2 community. Not clear if THN is moving again, or if press release is announcing the move to Al Manara.
19 July 2011
  • Tiny Home Nursery telephone and fax numbers updated (previously tel +971-4-3493201, fax +971-4-3689816, presumably no longer valid).
22 June 2011 review
  • Tiny Home Nursery (THN, THMN) moving to new location in Al Manarah for September 2011.
  • New telephone number not supplied but there is a mobile phone contact +971-50-6594616.
  • Children aged 18 months to 4 years old accepted? Opening times 0800-1230.
  • Postal address not clear. Both PO Box 215093 and PO Box 8679 seen in various sources.
  • Tiny Home and Ladybird Nursery have the same owner (Monica Valrani). Both nurseries bought in 2007, Ladybird Nursery from Kids First Group?
12 January 2009 review
  • Full name is Tiny Home Montessori Nursery.
  • Two websites for the same place? Second one, or old one, is www.sachdev.com/montessori/?
  • Contact details from second website email sachdev@emirates.net.ae, tel +971-4-493201, fax +971-4-534815 probably out of date (UAE uses seven digits for local numbers now).
  • PO Box from old website, not confirmed.
