Raffles Starters

Raffles Starters is the new early years learning centre for children aged between 3 – 6 years, opening in September 2018. The philosophy of Montessori will be used in all year groups, developing independent self-directed children with 21st century skills.

The school is conveniently located on the ground floor of Springs Souk, in Springs 7, and is adjacent to our Raffles Springs nursery. This unique school offers a more personal approach to education in its boutique environment.

At the end of KG2, children will have priority admission to any of the Innoventures group of schools. This provides a choice of the IB, American and UK curricula in schools recognised for the highest quality of learning across Dubai.

Welcome to Raffles Starters!

Our main admissions intake is for the start of the academic year in September, however we have an on-going admissions policy and we admit students throughout the year dependent on availability of places. Students may be assessed prior to admission depending on their age. Where required, the child’s report from his/her previous setting should be submitted.

Children must complete 3 years of age for entry to Pre KG, 4 years of age for KG1 and 5 years of age for KG2, by 31 December of the academic year.

Please note that we are unable to provide for children with special needs/disabilities. Where requests are made, a decision will be made on a case by case basis.

The school offers the British Early Years Foundation Stage programme for Pre-K and KG1 (ages 3 - 5 years). The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of your child from 3 to 5 years old.

Children in KG2, (age 5 - 6) will follow the English National Curriculum. This curriculum sets high standards emphasizing phonic awareness and mathematical skills

Children are guided towards these goals through the philosophy of Montessori. This is a hands-on approach that develops learning skills through routine and self-directive choices.
