The Early Childhood Center is a state of the art facility. It is resourced with the most up-to-the-minute, innovative, and exciting resources, which have been sourced from all over the world. The facility invites creativity, promotes enquiry, and enables children to enjoy learning.
EEC classrooms are built with safety as a top priority. The staff is able to attend to the needs of every child, keeping them safe and secure, both physically and emotionally.
The large light-filled rooms accommodate changing tables, high chairs, cots or sleeping beds. Children’s restrooms are attached to the classrooms of the older children.
The classrooms are equipped with a wide and varied collection of resources that stimulate exploration and discovery by the children and can be updated regularly to create fresh ideas and new perspectives.
This innovative facility provides opportunities for children to participate in a variety of sensory experiences. The equipment, along with our well-trained and experienced teachers, gives children an opportunity to interact with light, colour, texture and sound. As children explore their senses in the many different and changing environments in the sensory room, they become more confident socially and emotionally while having fun at the same time.
From the moment they are born, children gain an understanding of the world around them by looking, touching exploring, and being curious. As children learn, they enjoy communicating their growing knowledge in a number of ways. In the Exploratorium, children have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and explore further ideas by drawing, painting, building, sculpting, and creating collages. This is a room where innovative exploration is encouraged and messes are welcome.
Qatar’s desert climate will not restrict the growth and development of children attending the Early Education Center. As temperatures rise, the children spend more time inside.
The indoor play area is large, light and inviting. It is equipped with an ever-changing collection of innovative, European-inspired equipment, which provides for the physical and social development of each child.
It is an area where children are easily supervised and adults can join in with the exploration of objects and experiences.
Play is children’s work. As they play, they explore, they ask questions of themselves and they find the answers. In the outdoor adventure area, children challenge their minds and their bodies.
The outdoor area provides opportunities to:
explore and investigate.
push and pull.
collect, fill and tip.
build up and knock down.
develop large objects of art.
observe insects and other creepy crawlies.
take risks and seek challenges.
Whether it’s a teddy bear’s picnic, quiet story-time, or making music with a variety of instruments, the Outdoor Pavilion is the place to go. Children can lounge on soft cushions, reading or creating musical sounds together. Surrounded by plants grown by the children, the pavilion is an inviting place where children feel safe and secure as they explore music, books, or meet socially with a teacher.
