  • What our parents have to say...

    I cannot rate this nursery highly enough. Both my son and daughter have attended Kid’s Island and Cocoon for two years respectively and both had such a wonderful and happy time. This nursery is small and the effort, time and investment that is put back into the nursery from the staff is very obvious (this is a rarity in Dubai these days). The facilities for the little ones are first class. The teacher / parent relationship is important and working together to ensure the happiness of the chid is paramount. I want to say a huge thank you to all the staff at both Kid’s Island and Cocoon on behalf of all my family. Today is my daughters last day at nursery and I could not have wished for a better place for both my children to spend their early years. Well done and keep up the good work.

  • What our parents have to say...

    It all starts at the nursery, they are the backbone of our kids academic and social skills development and that is what Kid’s Island and Cocoon nursery were to me. My daughters grew more confident at Kid’s Island and Cocoon, they were loved and cared for!! They were not a number, they mattered .... The support that I had received as a parent when it came to choosing a school made it seem that much easier even though it was a stressful path!! They were patient, caring and very cooperative. Thank you for your continuous support and we have been so lucky to have had our first school experience at Kid’s Island and Cocoon nursery. This is definitely without no doubt in my mind the best nursery for your kids.

  • What our parents have to say...

    Kid’s Island is more than just a nursery, it's a family! When I went for the tour I was immediately convinced but when my daughter, Rania, started nursery I was even more impressed. Everyone took a personal interest in my child, not just her class teachers. Her class teacher, miss Mary, was almost like a second mother to my daughter. She taught me so much about Rania that I didn't know and also taught me how to deal with certain milestones.  At Kid’s Island they don't only focus on the child but on the parent as well. It was quite an overwhelming feeling to send my first born to nursery. Kid’s Island was so supportive of my experience as well, I could go in and talk to them at any time. I couldn't have asked for a better nursery experience for my daughter. Thank you so much to everyone at Kid’s Island!

  • What our parents have to say...

    My son attended a year at Kid’s Island and is registered for a second year at Cocoon... All the staff are so kind and caring. They're very focused on each child's individual needs and would take time everyday to tell you what your child did through the day. They ensure that kids have fun while they're learning and above all develop the child's confidence and individual personality as I saw through my son... and what a progress! Safety and cleanliness is a priority and I'm so impressed with that! We couldn't ask for more.
