Following the successful launch of Bloom World Academy (BWA) last year, the school is delighted to announce the addition of Bloom World Academy Early Excellence Centre for children from 18 months to three years of age. The school will now offer a complete education from 18 months through to 18 years at its state-of-the-art campus in Al Barsha, with admissions open for nursery spaces for September 2023.
Since opening its doors in August 2022, BWA has lived up to its progressive mindset and promise to put its students and their families first and to dare to do things differently. The launch of the BWA Early Excellence Centre at the BWA campus extends the school’s commitment to being family-friendly by providing parents with a convenient solution in offering a single location where nursery and school-aged children can both attend and be part of the same learning community. The BWA Early Excellence Centre will also adopt the same philosophy as BWA of putting its children at the heart of all decisions. This includes empowering children to make choices in their learning based on their personal interests and needs. The Early Excellence Centre will also provide a holistic approach to developing young learners from the ages of 18 months to three years and will have a firm focus on three key areas: play, language, and physical development.
Families will now be able to fulfil their whole family’s education needs at BWA’s state-of-the-art campus.
Developing these three key areas, whilst being located at the BWA Campus and utilising its premium facilities, will help ensure a smooth and successful transition to more formal schooling once the children move from nursery to Pre-KG. By delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) through the curiosity approach, BWA Early Excellence Centre will foster an environment and learning experiences that empower children to excel, think for themselves, and direct their own learning.
Founding Principal of Bloom World Academy, John Bell said: “The overwhelming support we’ve received from our parents and the community since we opened the school in August 2022 encouraged us to have our own nursery on campus and cater to younger children. This is allowing us to further expand and build a cohort of socially happy, emotionally attuned, and resilient students. At the BWA Early Excellence Centre, we firmly believe in empowering our children by giving them an element of choice in the curriculum and we are excited to offer a wide selection of activities which will be driven by each child’s unique needs and preferences. Our little Bloomers will experience a variety of practical, hands-on learning activities which will vary from day to day and will be play-based and enquiry driven in design.”
Flexibility in terms of timings to suit family needs, with care provided for the full working day or less, from two to five days a week.
BWA Early Excellence Centre’s children will receive the same benefits as BWA students, including access to game-changing ‘firsts’ in the UAE. These include a later start and flexibility in each child’s timetable. Children are able to start between 8.00-9.00 am and finish at either 12.00 pm, 2.00 pm or 4.00-5.00 pm. This customisation is one of the hallmarks of BWA and this flexibility has been extended down to its youngest learners. This approach is driven by BWA’s desire to support its community, balancing care and learning with family life.
The children will also benefit from BWA’s Learning Achievement Passports (LAP), with the LAP acting as a roadmap to a child’s educational journey that is reviewed on a half-termly basis with parents and their children to celebrate achievements and align on the targets to be worked towards over the coming weeks.
BWA’s school-based nursery will ensure a smooth and successful transition to more formal schooling once the children move from nursery to Pre-KG, avoiding a second settling-in period.
Children will have access to other learning environments in the school’s Primo area, such as the Junior Lumos Lab, paint splash room, outdoor play areas that include water features and rain showers, plant boxes and integrated enrichment activities, including sensory discovery areas, mindfulness, dancing, yoga, sports skills, water exploration, and rich English language development.
BWA is a creative, family-first IB curriculum school conceptualised and created by the expert minds at Bloom Education; a school that dares to do things differently, while still providing the high quality of education expected from a premium school. An education at Bloom World Academy is flexible and customised for each child, making it the ideal choice for parents who care as much about how their child experiences learning as the academic results.
