Hooray for Getting Active with Little GEMS International

LearnPost Category - LearnLearn - Post Category - SchoolsSchools

We get it, mamas, with a never-ending list of things to do, finding the (right!) environment to nurture your child’s curiosity, provide plenty of outdoor activity, stimulate those little brain cells AND still offer tons of fun is enough to send any parent into a spin – especially in the age of iPads and screen-time. But don’t stress, Little GEMS International is an award-winning pre-school ready to save the day and make sure your toddler gets their daily dose of exercise, sunshine and a whole lot more.

These guys have studied the long term benefits of outdoor activities and the importance of Locomotor play to the development of young kiddos and have created an active environment both within and away from the classroom – that will help develop gross motor skills, co-ordination and balance all year round. Have a growing boy who’s been a bit restless recently? This could be just the type of play he needs to channel energy into his day (and give his mama a good night’s rest!). We love the sound of their fitness week which includes parent-and-child Zumba and even a daddy-and-child yoga session!

Little GEMS International is all about understanding little ones, so they know that children learn best by doing, and using all of their senses. Their environment focuses on SPARKLES (no, not glitter activities but Sensory, Physical, Auditory, Real, Kinaesthetic, Learning Experiences). Whether kicking through leaves, or watching a colony of ants carry away a crumb of food (actually strangely captivating to see!), being outside reinforces an understanding of their environment, and keeps all that creativity flowing!

Learning here is not just about putting pencil to paper (or crayon to card…). It’s about understanding the importance of educational play, exploration and physical activity and using our fabulous city environment to grow. Hooray!

Little GEMS International, Al Barsha is located behind the Saudi German Hospital, in a quiet residential area, easily accessible from SZ Road and Hessa Street. They also have branches in Safa Park and Al Manara. For Admission Enquiries, please call: +971 – (0)4 3995244, or visit
