About EEC

The three Early Education Centres serve children aged 6 months through to 3 years. The centres deliver quality programmes in which both the care and education of the children is of the highest order. Learning is hands on, engaging and fun.

Qualified teachers and teaching assistants work together through the Creative Curriculum (developed and published by Teaching Strategies, Washington, USA) to provide stimulating, individualized and developmentally appropriate programming for all children who attend the EEC centres. The program is bilingual with both Arabic and English languages being the focus.

The Early Education Centre is accredited by the International Council of Schools (ICS) and New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), and uses the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) standards as its guidelines to creating, promoting and sustaining programs that advance and ensure quality early childhood education in Qatar.

Learning

The three Qatar Academy Early Education Centers offer opportunities for every child aged 6 months to 3 years to learn in safe and nurturing environments through a play-based curriculum. We believe that practices grounded in research support the growth of social, emotional, physical and cognitive development in young learners.

Teaching and learning in classrooms is driven by our Image of Child, which link to the IB Learner profile.
We believe that children are: Unique, Capable, Risk-Takers, Social, Curious, Persistent, Sensory, Creative, Researchers and Communicators.

We recognize the importance of forming partnerships with families to build home-school connections, in the best interest of the child.

Statement of Belief for the EEC

We believe that a quality early childhood experience requires educators to be well qualified and to work as a team to effectively create the best learning environment for the children in their care.

We believe a quality program creates an environment in which each child’s language, culture, diversity and unique gifts are deeply respected and celebrated.

We believe that children are naturally curious about their surroundings. A quality program encourages and facilitates the child’s interest and exploration.

We believe that children’s learning is challenged and extended through developmentally appropriate, interactive, creative and fun experiences.

We believe that children learn best in a nurturing environment that encourages independence and builds self-confidence.
