Mission Statement

KIPS’s goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment in which children are encouraged to explore their intellectual, emotional and creative capacities through play, communication and physical activity. We foster shared learning by helping children to develop respect for themselves, others, and their world. We provide a warm and accepting environment for children to help them recognize that they are important to us, and their community is there to love and support them.

Further, KIPS provides an opportunity for parents to be involved in their children’s development while they are at school. We believe that parents’ opinion and suggestions are the most valuable source of information for a childcare centre.

Our main goal is to construct and fortify this idea in our centre. To achieve our goal, we have provided a forum for parents to kindly write their ideas, suggestions and comments. Moreover, we invite parents to become members of our parents committee.

We open KIPS with the underlying philosophy to only offer the best and to accept no compromises. It is the guiding principle behind all we do. We provide our services from only one facility due to our firm belief that there is no substitute for direct, personal daily “hands on” interactions with the families we serve.

Although we offer an English program, we expose our children to French and Arabic language to promote their language development. We are here to help them grow and with your help we have no doubt that this goal is easily attainable.

Testimonials

I would like to take this opportunity to thank KIPS staffs for their hardworking and attentions. I registered my son about 3-4 months a go in KIPS and I have noticed a big improvement in his social life and linguistic abilities. He is now able to speak English although we never talk at home and he dares to play with children when we go to the public playgrounds and parks. Besides, unlike the few days at the beginning, he is always happy when he is at school.

I was so worried when I decided to join Vanessa to a nursery, I panicked about what may happen there how she is going to be treated…..,I searched and chose kips, ..for my big surprise Vanessa from the very first week started crying at home asking us to take her to her lovely adorable teacher Shadia, even she wakes up during the night refusing to sleep because she wants to go to the nursery. In addition to these reasons ,the atmosphere and the good attention given by the staff and her cute friends gave Vanessa a family like feeling. I am very happy and proud of my choice and thanks for every one there.

Any kid feels happy when there grandmother comes to spend time with them on holiday. How much he is attached to her all the time and never wants to leave her. I was so confused when the grandmother of my Kid “AbdulRahman” came to Doha and want to keep him with her without going to the nursery “KIPS”. I was so confused whether to send him to the nursery to learn and have fun with his friends or stay with his grandmother at home to spend as much time as possible with her during the holiday. Surprisingly “Abdulrahman” solved this issue . Here is how.. I asked him whether he wants to go to the nursery or stay with your grandmother ? He said : “Nursery” Then I repeat vice versa, whether you want to stay with your grandmother or go to the nursery ? He said : “Nursery” Then I repeat , whether you want to stay with your grandmother or stay with your grandmother? He said : “Nursery”
Yes, he definately prefers to go to KIPS nursery than being with his Grandmother (whom he loves very much) because there HE learn new things, builds his personality, has more experience when dealing with friends of different nationalitie and is always busy with lots of activities with perfect and professional teachers.
Finally, I was happy to send him to the nursery and took him a little bit early to be able to spend the rest of the day with his grandmother.

How can I thank you enough for the way in which Anas has progressed in the last 6 months. The school facilities and teachers are outstanding and I know that Anas is very happy in KIPS. Anas shows a lot of excitement to go to school which shows how happy he is and how kind you all are with him. We appreciate everything you have done and the time you have taken to invest in our son’s future.
