Future International Nursery (FIN) aims to be at the forefront of early years education in the UAE by playing an active role in instilling the solid foundations necessary to take on tomorrow’s challenges, while placing an emphasis on reconnecting with the natural environment and affirming each child as a member of our UAE’s culturally rich community. Through discovering their ‘roots’, children can gain the understanding and confidence to develop ‘wings’ that allow them to actively participate in shaping the future.
At FIN, each child is valued as a unique individual with a distinctive set of gifts. The happy, safe and stimulating environment ensures children consider Future International, ‘their home’, away from home.
Our innovative dual language programme incorporates the research-based International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). It also includes best practices from around the world to support key areas of learning and enable children to develop communication and language skills in English and Arabic.
We believe that the pre-school years play an integral role in shaping a child’s future through development of the physical, mental and social skills needed for all aspects of their lives. As important, is the need to allow a child to develop his or her own unique identity and a set of values that serve as a basis for their individuality, an area we believe differentiates FIN from others.
FIN aims to achieve this through a curriculum that is adapted to the unique culture, setting and needs of its children. We pride ourselves in the fact that we are not only adopting some of the best practices from the UK but we are also adapting it to suit the cultural and religious needs of our children. Hence, a core principle that we believe in and put to practice is the preservation of our students’ identities and mother tongue.
Through FIN’s carefully balanced programme, both in Arabic and English, children learn about their faith and heritage. The Quran and Sunnah are the foundation of FIN’s approach and Islamic values are built into everything we do. Children are allowed to develop, discover and learn in a safe environment, which positively affirms their self-esteem and self-image and encourages them to discover the world around them.
