Trip to the Zoo

Learning Ladder Nursery in JLT was very busy in December. We celebrated national day and went a field trip to the zoo. Our trip to the zoo started with a bus ride which added to the excitement as quite a few children had never been on a bus before. We were able to see more animals than ever before, because they were out due to the cool weather. Some of our favorite zoo animals:
The male lion was one of the first animals we saw. He sat there lounging the whole time we watched. At times, he even turned to look at us. The children who had never seen a real lion before were amazed!
The reptile section is always a “must stop” for the children. Snakes are their favorites. Lots of “oohs” and “aahs” as we walked along the enclosures. The giraffes created much curiosity, the children in awe of the tall lanky animal!

After a busy morning at the zoo, the kids were tired and hungry and gobbled away their snacks on the bus headed back to nursery in Jumeirah lake towers.Nursery in JLT Dubai Trip to the Zoo Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip2 Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip3 Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip4 Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip5 Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip6 Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip7 Nursery in jlt_zoo_trip8

Posh Paws comes to Learning Ladder Nursery!

We had such a wonderful time with the animals on Tuesday May 7th, 2013! The petting farm Posh Paws visited our nursery in JLT and was a huge hit with all the children! We had a lovely time feeding and petting the animals that included a dog, cat, rabbits, ducklings, hamsters, tortoise, snake, and a dancing parrot! We hope to have many more such educational events for our children to learn about nature in a such a fun way! We hope that all of you have enjoyed and liked the pictures on our FB page!


Mother’s Day at Learning Ladder Nursery

Dear Parents,

A very warm welcome to Term 3! Another exciting term has gone by and we are fast approaching the end of the year.  We hope that everybody had a relaxing and wonderful break.

We would like to thank all the parents and staff for help us arrange so many exciting and fun opportunities for the children to learn. In February, we had our wonderful trip to Barsha Pond Park and then the colourful International Day with costumes and food from all over the world.

We started off March by launching a much awaited bus service to help facilitate the parents in the school run. Our transport service with a dedicated bus nanny on board caters to not only within JLT but to the neighbouring areas of Dubai Marina, The Gardens/Discovery Gardens, Greens, and Tecom. Please inquire at the nursery for the charges and timings.

On March 6th,2013 Learning Ladder Nursery had a visit from the renowned dentists Drs. Nicols and ASP to educate our children on the importance of dental hygiene from an early age. The children were given a vital demonstration on the use of proper brushing and flossing techniques, the importance of healthy eating, and of brushing at least twice a day. The initiative was to empower our children for a brighter healthier smile in the years to come! The children had a fun and exciting time while learning and you can enjoy the pictures on our face book page.

On March 21st, 2013 we all got together to celebrate the most important person in our lives. “Mother’s Day” was celebrated with children decorating cupcakes for their mommies and making a bouqet of presents for them. We all shared in the love and warmth the children shared with their mothers and as usual there are some lovely mommy-child photographs to enjoy on the Nursery facebook page.


International Day

A very warm welcome to all the new children, parents and staff this month.

Among the many wonderful educational opportunities, we ended busy February with a fabulous International Day. The children, staff and even some parents came in national dresses of their country. It was the broader education at its best, allowing everyone to sample culinary delights from across the globe as well as to learn about different cultures and traditions in the wonderful show and tell sessions that children carried out with great confidence and interest. We are enormously grateful to the staff and parents for their support of this event. The children loved the day and you would also love the pictures that we have posted on our facebook page.

We must not miss thanking all the mums who accompanied the Nursery staff to look after the children who had the most enjoyable time at Barsha Pond Park, where the nursery went for a field trip on February 14th. A wonderful day to be outdoors.

An enormous thank you to all our staff for the hard work they put into the preparation for the mid- term Parent Teacher meetings on February 20th and 21st . Parents were given another much appreciated opportunity to look trough their child’s work at the nursery and to discuss progress with the teachers.

We would like to assure all new parents who have just joined the nursery, that Learning Ladder Nursery makes every effort to help children settle down easily and to support their learning in the best possible way.
