22 January 2015:
Actual opening date not provided by VELC, but nursery looks ready to open soon. At least building looks finished, and there is a sign on the roof. Announcement from VELC 13 Nov 2014 (FB) said "Admissions are now open and they are having a special offer for new pupils who are going to register for the 1st term, which is free fees for the 1st term from 16-Nov to 18-Dec." Since neither Umm Suqiem or JLT branch was open in Nov or Dec 2014, "free fees" really is a case of you get what you pay for i.e. nothing.
Location: Visible from Jumeirah Beach Rd ocean side, between Elevation Burger and ENOC petrol station, but awkward to access directly from main road (by car or by foot). For access and sand parking; turn right onto Street 15A from Beach Road after Street 9A and Elevation Burger, then right again before small grocery and mosque (onto a dirt track) which takes you to Vernus ELC. Or turn right from Beach Road onto Street 9A, then left onto sandy track behind Bosphorus Restaurant and follow that until you get to Vernus. Location map supplied indicates incorrect villa but is close enough to the Vernus ELC house; corrected version shown here.
30 September 2014:
Location: Information provided says Villa #6, Street 13A (renamed as Al Qarda St), Umm Suqeim 1, which is near the Umm Suqeim Fishing Harbour. As of Sep 2014 no nursery found at or near that location. Either information is incorrect, or nursery is still under construction (several buildings at that site are in various states of construction or renovation).
