Enriching Young Minds
The Learning Tree Bahrain is a private Nursery and Kindergarten located in Hamala, Bahrain. Our motto “Enriching Young Minds” reflects the dedication and belief shared by all those at The Learning Tree that each child is special and deserves to have their first experience in education be a positive and rewarding one.
The Learning Tree views a child from a Whole Child Developmental Approach. We believe a child’s education is academic, aesthetic, creative, social, physical and emotional. We work in partnership with families, teachers and students to create a safe, supportive and stimulating learning environment. We believe students’ active engagement in their own learning fosters success. We work to make students’ school experience one which encourages independent thinking, building self-esteem and self-confidence. Every individual has inherent worth.
Why Early Childhood Education?
Early Childhood Education (Kindergarten and Nursery) exposes students to a comprehensive program intended to promote and encourage the developmental stages in a child’s life from birth to age six. We focus on the key developmental years of 18 months through to 4 years. These years are proven to be critical developmental years in a child’s development to prepare their readiness skills for Primary Schools in Bahrain. Our program focuses on the social, emotional, academic and physical development of our students in a nurturing and positive environment. Inclusive in these programs is language acquisition, or the development of a student’s ability to communicate effectively. As such, we provide dual language exposure and programs of language acquisition in both Arabic and English, while keeping with our philosophy that learning can be fun!
Our curriculum is developed around the principles of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We have developed a Curriculum which merges these two educational philosophies to encompass cross-curriculum goals and objectives. Our curriculum is planned to not only strive for excellence in academic skills, but to provide a creative environment which fosters a child’s love for education and school; developing an intrinsic drive for success.
