Mission Statement

At Little Genius we will teach, encourage and support our children to become independent little learners.

We provide a happy, secure environment for our children to learn and play together, regardless of gender, race or religion. A place where children are treated as individuals, feel respected and valued and where best practice is paramount.

Under the guidance of fully qualified and experienced nursery teachers we introduce the children to early education.

“Together we prepare the children of today for a world of tomorrow.”

“It’s never too early for education”. We encourage parents to book an appointment for a tour of our unique building. With spacious classrooms, learning centres and an on-site clinic.

I am writing for you to emphasize on how grateful we are from all the experience we had with Little Genius Nursery for the year 2011/2012. Little Genius Nursery, was like a big family for our son Edward, We are so happy we chose to send our son here, as staff daily go the extra mile to ensure he is entertained, stimulated and above all, cared for. He enjoyed every day the variety of activities he takes part in, all of them fun but also starting him on his learning journey through discovery and creativity; “We couldn’t ask for more from a nursery. The staff are so friendly and care about the children, the activities are varied and interesting, A big thanks for all your hard work and effort … will miss you all - Karen, Valerie, Nadeen, Cecille, Richel, Pauline, Lynn, Hoda, “Receptionists”, all….. A Great Job, from a great Team, Directed by a great professional leader, Mrs Lina. The graduation exceeded our expectations, with its organization and generosity and how it personalized each child as a part of this family. In conclusion,”Little Genius” is not a simple nursery it is a successful family team work where it highly reflects Love, Care, and professionalism. All the best for a brilliant future!

Even though Little Genius Nursery was brand new when I applied for my daughter, they still managed to impress me. The staff are well prepared and well trained, they answered every question I asked and I liked what I heard. The teachers and the assistants are very professional, lovely and lively. They know how to interact with the children and teach them in new fun and different ways every day. They have a lot of games and activities that teach the children without them noticing that they are actually learning, and they are open to any suggestions to improve their system and to make it a better place for our children. The atmosphere of the nursery and the facilities are very cheerful and child friendly. I also love how clean the nursery is and how keen they are to keep it clean all day long, and teach the children excellent hygienic habits keeping them healthy at the same time. All toys, classrooms, bathrooms are being cleaned throughout the day. As for the security, it is one of the best features in the nursery, because I haven’t seen this at any other nursery I visited before. They have web cams so you can watch your child and see what is going on inside the classroom, and nobody is allowed to go in and out unless you have a registered fingerprint on their system. I love Little Genius Nursery and I would for sure register my second daughter there as soon as she is ready and old enough for it, and I would recommend it to everybody I know.

Little Genius is a really friendly nursery. From the security guards at the front, to the receptionists and all the teachers and administrative staff. Everyone seems to know my child’s name and always have a smile for you. The facilities themselves are big, spacious and bright. There is plenty of room for the children to run around and play both indoors and outdoors. The children really benefit from the trampoline, bikes and play houses, not to mention the big bouncy castles that come out on special occasions. There is a large well equipped kitchen where the children get their hands in, making delicious healthy snacks like fruit salads and pancakes. A nice aspect of the nursery is that there are specialist rooms for arts, crafts, music, French and Arabic, so children can move around and really enjoy themselves getting ready for big school. The bathrooms are of small size making it easier for the children to use. All children get a daily report about what they did at school. In summery Little Genius is a really nice nursery and i would recommend it to all my friends.
