Paving the way together for a life full of learning

Kid's Island and Cocoon Nursery Schools were founded, by Isabelle Amatoury over 23 years ago. Her philosophy centres on the belief that each child is unique and deserves to be given the opportunity to experience the best possible start to education. Isabelle has more than 32 years of experience in Early Years Education and applies her wealth of knowledge to the daily running of the Schools.

Kid's Island and Cocoon Nursery Schools follow the British Curriculum (EYFS), accepting children from 12 months to 4 years of age. Class sizes vary with a high adult-child ratio which maximizes individual attention.

Our Schools provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children to build self-awareness, and enrich their social skills. Through diverse learning opportunities, engaging activities and play within a relaxed and caring atmosphere the children are allowed to reach their potential.

Our team is committed to offering a balanced and holistic approach, where the foundations for positive attitudes are established in a warm and nurturing learning environment which is the culmination of years of carefully informed resourcing.

Transitioning into a nursery environment is a special time for children and parents. Our team of caring staff are available to support our families through this settling in process that can be emotionally challenging. Parents are children’s first and most profound educators and as such are valued as partners. All parents are made to feel welcome. Their input is encouraged through a range of opportunities for collaboration. The symbiotic relationship between the Schools and parents provides a solid foundation for children to excel.

We provide flexibility to parents by offering attendance options of 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week depending on the child’s age group. All our classes have a qualified and experienced teacher who is supported by one or two teacher’s assistants depending on the class age group.

Kid's Island and Cocoon Nursery Schools are located in the Jumeirah 3 area of Dubai, in two different locations which are a few minutes walking distance from each other. We extend an invitation to you to visit our Schools. During your visit, you will have the opportunity to view our facilities and understand our vision and aims for early childhood education. We would also be happy to answer all your questions.

We hope to see you soon at Kid's Island and Cocoon Nursery Schools.

The Team

Trust is established when parents see a professional, motivated, happy and caring team providing the best possible care for their children. Learning is a continuous, life-long process and we therefore invest significantly in the development of our staff and believe in promoting from within. Our teachers deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) which is the legislated curriculum followed in the United Kingdom. Within this framework, they strive to provide opportunities for learning through play and exploration, using all the senses and catering for all learning styles.
