Smile British Nursery in Abu Dhabi /Twins Club

Hi, we are moving to Abu Dhabi in August and I have the tricky task of finding a nursery for a two and a half year old twins without actually being there. Can anyone recommend a nursery they know to be good i.e. they have worked there or had a child attend. I have Googled British nurseries and have lots of generic lists but really looking for opinions form those that have used them. Any other information with regards to how to occupy small children gratefully accepted !If anyone knows of a twins club that would be great. Thank you in advance !

hello, yes nurseries, the most popular ones that you can do a search on, are bright beginnings, humpty dumpty, jigsaw, stepping stones, ladybird, int montersori, teddy bear american, little smarties. but you will find that they all have waiting lists, so i would ring around and get applying quick.

If they are 21/2 should you not also be thinking about what school you want to get them into...that's a tough one also here in AD, mind you with a lot of family's leaving, maybe the competition for places will calm down a bit

Oh defo, I am adopting one of my lads sons from the start of the term till July so he can do his exams. Dad lost his job and of course the home, which would mean them having to find a new school for him to do his exams. 2 male teenagers till July, pass the Prozac, someone
