Dubai’s happiest nursery, JINS, is full of fun, laughter and magic.
Located within Sunmarke’s vibrant campus, Jumeirah International Nurseries (JINS) is part of the Fortes’ family of schools and provides children with a seamless transition from Nursery to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at Sunmarke School.
The JINS team aims to provide an exciting, inspiring and loving environment for all children, giving them the best possible start in life.
JINS is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of Education, which in its most basic form is a way of observing what children know, are curious about and what challenges them. Our education is child-centred and honours the uniqueness of each child. Learning is supported through our child initiated topics, meaning that children lead the way in selecting topics of interest to them. Our highly trained and qualified staff plan activities and learning opportunities for the children based specifically on their interests. Emphasis is placed upon an interactive social experience through which qualities such as co-operation, empathy, independence and initiative can develop.
Our curriculum is based on The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework of the National Curriculum of England. There are seven areas of learning that shape our educational program which are;
Physical Development, Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Our purpose built facilities have been planned and designed keeping in mind the overall development of your child. The naturalistic interiors provide a comfortable environment which is also stimulating while the outside areas are created to help maximise your child’s sensory, physical, cognitive and social development.
JINS Sunmarke JVT showcases classrooms that are specifically created and adapted to allow and encourage your child to engage fully with their environment, facilitating world-class Early Years Education.
At JINS, we understand the importance of a clean and safe environment for care and learning to take place. We pride ourselves on high-quality expectations by ensuring our health and safety standards remain a priority at all times. A child who attends a JINS nursery will be greeted every morning with a clean, fresh and sanitised learning environment. One that has been thoroughly risk assessed ensuring that everything is age appropriate, well maintained and non-hazardous. The children will use changing facilities and toilets which are within their classroom, that are child-friendly and they will be encouraged to practice good hygiene throughout the day.
Should any child need to visit the nurse, they will be loved and cared for by our full-time nurse. They will also have the opportunity to visit our doctor who comes twice a week. Infection control is our priority ensuring all our children are healthy and happy to learn. Equally, our security policies are of utmost importance. All adults (parents/visitors/staff) wear identifiable lanyards at all times. The nursery is surrounded by security gates both externally and internally. All adults are accompanied while visiting the nursery.
JINS recognises that starting nursery for the first time is a big step in a child’s and parents life. Every child is individual and will settle into their new routine at their own pace. With this in mind, we will ensure that you and your child have support at every step of the way. All families will be invited for a staggered entry week allowing a smooth and steady start for the children.
We believe that the early years are critical to your child’s development.
At JINS, children learn through play and hands-on activities. Learning through play is the most effective way for children to make sense of the world around them. By engaging in new experiences and environments children gain the self-confidence needed to become independent learners.
We give children differentiated learning programmes and individual attention in small class sizes, building the foundation for success in school. Our teaching team embodies, radiates and transmits excellence, innovation, creativity and compassion, this coupled with learning through play lays firm foundations for academic success, personal fulfilment and lasting happiness in each and every one of our JINS children.
Jumeirah International Nursery’s teachers provide their children with a warm, happy and friendly environment, personal care, and creative and stimulating learning experiences to develop holistically and feel loved, nurtured and valued.
JINS environments provide support to children to become resourceful and capable conductors of their own knowledge, with a predominance of hands-on, open-ended materials. These types of resources encourage creativity and problem-solving.
Every part of the nursery is planned to inspire the children imaginations and ignite their inner creativity and passions.
