    Thanks renumanu for the review. My daughter will be 3 yrs in may. I am planning to send her to nursery in sept.
    Is there a waiting list to get an admission in nursery.Do I have to register in advance? How old is your son?
    Sending your child to a good school/playschool is a big worry. after playschool next worry is seeking admission in a good school.
    Thank you so much for your reply.

    Hi,

    Today went to Noah's arc in mussafah and vision nursery in mussafah as well, to enroll my 2.5yr old daughter for the april batch. But cant decide between the both. Externally they both look the same. Any opinions on Vision nursery?? As this is closer to home for me.

    Hello Experience,

    I too would like to know more of your experience with Noah's Ark. I have just enrolled my son (today is his first day). I would like to hear more on the experiences and the teachers for Noah's Ark.

    Having admitted my son to Noah's Ark, it has been 4 days, and today he has taken ill. I have noticed these few days, that his food is usually untouched,,, he is too small to take his food himself. I am not sure if the teachers are looking after him and the other kids properly.

    Please share if you too have faced such situation.

    Let me give you my honest evaluation about Sara. My overall rating is negative. The only positive aspect is the that principal personally monitors the entry and exit of kids when they start in the morning and end in the afternoon. Other than that – it outwardly tends to give an appearance of being disciplined as the teachers seem very scared of the principal and there are just TOO many rules that just generally cause inconvenience.

    I’ll list some of the issues I’ve noted – and please remember this is done keeping in mind my experiences of having kids in other nurseries and from close friends whose kids study in other nurseries.

    These are as follows:

    1. Firstly its expensive. I am paying more than my kids who studied at Noah’s ark and my than my kids in school/kindergarden
    2. Secondly – you don’t really get what you paid for. I find that the teaching is not that great compared to other nursery. Kids are not learning as much as kids in other nurseries
    3. There are too many written noticed and acknowledgements. Am fed up of signing acknowledgements for every small thing. Makes you feel like an idiot “Yes I acknowledge for this, Yes I acknowledge for that”. I will do this. I will do that.
    4. If you’ll are working parents – be ready to skip work to attend the numerous open houses. Which are held on Thursdays. I have honestly not seen any other school /nursery in AbU Dhabi that holds open houses on a working day. Bright riders has on weekends. Indian school over weekend. Other nursery on weekend. Am fed up of going late to work just to spend 5 minutes with the teacher and sign a attendance sheet.
    5. Be ready for written notes from the school nurse to cut the child’s nails – when there is nothing to cut! My kids nails are short and any mother will know – up to a certain point – you cannot cut the nail without hurting the child The nurse obviously has not cut any child’s nails and does not understand that and the only way to follow her request is to practically remove the whole nail.
    6. There will be planned schedules for the whole semester distributed at the start and you will find that dates are not adhered to. Mid December the nusery had a open house. As per the plan the next open house was to be in Jan end – which seems practical. This was changed (with just a days notice) to second week of Jan. Can any parent tell me – what is the use of having a open house few weeks apart – of which 2 weeks were winter holidays!!!. And for this you have to skip work!!!. Waste of time.
    7. For those with both working parents – the open houses on a working day and sudden 1 day notice would prove really inconvenient. One parent I know was really upset at having to run around for arrangements due to 1 day open house notice – as the kids have a holiday on that day.
    8. Biggest hit of all. – Most parents “fight” to get into Sara – hoping of a guaranteed admission to Indian school or Bright riders – Be warned in advance – This is not guaranteed!!. Firstly they make you sign 4-5 times over the entire year that it is not guaranteed and finally you go through lot. Just for a few seats.
    9. I witnessed a lot for Bright riders – that was poorly organized. Forms were freely distributed and people were entering multiple entries – supposedly not allowed but wasn’t monitored and organized well. One parent won twice. And while everyone was upset and pointed figures at the parent – I don’t agree – and hold the Principal responsible for organizing a mess and allowing it to happen.
    10. Teachers are too scared of the Principal. For what reason I don’t know. They have actually admitted to being scared of her. Whilst I, to some extent accept discipline as a for of implementing a system. Excessive causes failure and doesn’t bring out the best in people. Which supports my observation that the teachers are not that great as would have been expected.
    11. As said in the earlier point, the teachers are not that great – you would think that with strong discipline enforcement, it would be – but I don’t see that extra “zing” in the teachers. I would fairly say that they are almost the same as in any other nursery – so please don’t expect that something extra special – if you know what I mean.


    I hope this feedback will help you make your decision in choosing this nursery. Having gone through an entire year here, To be honest – I don’t really see what the fight is all about in getting into this – the long waiting lines to get in. You are not guaranteed a seat anywhere and the teaching/facilities are not that great. Be ready for some more inconveniences as compared to other nurseries. I strongly feel the best Indian nurseries in Abu Dhabi and Leens and Noah’s Ark!
