Redwood Nursery is a leading Montessori nursery school in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and soon in Doha. Here at Redwood, we take great pride in adopting the Montessori philosophy and approach to learning. The Montessori philosophy is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori and characterised by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development.

Aims and ObjectivesWe believe that children are capable of learning and developing more in the first five years of their life than at any other time. To encourage them to reach their full potential at this important stage, giving children the opportunity to learn in a fun, creative and highly stimulating environment is essential.
Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future – Dr. Maria MontessoriAt Redwood, we aim to provide that opportunity by offering children the chance to develop, learn and grow in surroundings which feature innovative child focused technology, promote their creativity with a dedicated arts-rich curriculum, and develop their confidence and sense of adventure through activity areas while centring around an innovative Montessori curriculum. With indoor and outdoor areas enriched by a Feng Shui Master to ensure a positive flow of energy at our nursery, the carefully planned, stimulating environment will help children develop an outstanding base for creative learning while nourishing their imagination, health and encourage a harmonious atmosphere while being safe and secure. Using learning materials specifically focused around the Montessori philosophy, they have been designed to provide a wide variety of learning experiences geared to the developmental needs of children at each learning stage. The learning involved in handling, manipulating and working with these materials is both appealing and interesting for young children. Focused around engaging a child in well-structured tasks and exploratory activities, they experience deep inner satisfaction which leaves him or her with an overall positive attitude.
