Nursery Director Message

Dear Perspective and Current Pippen Park Families,

On behalf of the entire founding staff of Pippen Park Nursery-Dubai Campus (PPN-D), it is our great honor to welcome you and your family. As the Director of Early Years, I have had the privilege of being a part of the Pippen Park Founding Team and it is my great pleasure to welcome our  first families in December 2018.

PPN-D’s vision is to offer our families, in align of UAE cultural values, exceptional standards of early childhood education, in a professional and with a caring environment.  

PPN-D prides itself on creating learning environments that are innovative, joyful, safe, and adaptable to meet the developmental needs of all our children. Supported by the California Infant/Toddler/Twos/Preschool Learning and Development Foundations, our play-based philosophy incorporates themes and learning styles in a developmentally appropriate environment where learning is exploratory and fun. Our experienced and certified early childhood teachers will nurture and challenge the students of all ages by exposing them to information about the world they live in. Through careful observation and documentation adjustments and interventions will be made to our daily curriculum to assure that the needs of all our students are being met.

Engaging with and working alongside our families is an essential component of our daily life at PPN-D. It is our goal to make sure that all our families are fully assured of care and support which we will be providing for their little precious ones.  This is facilitated through daily communication, monthly newsletters, open door policy with teachers and our leadership team. The PPN-D organizes one parent-teacher night each academic term. Additionally, we will always encourage our families to actively participate in the daily care of their children, by accepting family volunteers to support special programs at PPN-D.  

As a founding member of the Pippen Park Dubai Team, I cannot wait to see where this journey will take us! I encourage you to explore our website and learn all you can about PPN-D. I also would like to invite you and your family to come and see the Pippen Park environment and staff in action!
