Mission Statement

We base our work on helping children become successful learners, confident and independent individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society. Children will learn through a balance of free and guided play times. The program is adjusted to the needs and abilities of each and every child, and will be provided for them in a safe, caring environment involving continuous coordination with their parents.

International Affiliation: Petits Pas represents the State of Qatar in the World Forum Foundation. We have been present in 2009 in Belfast and in October 2010 in Nebraska City, USA for the training regarding connecting children with nature, under QP sponsorship. We are also sending a Petits Pas representative to be present in the world conference to be held May 3rd-6th, 2011 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

My wife and I are very thankful to Petits Pas for the amazing services you offer. My son is currently there and my daughter graduated two years ago and she always likes to visit as she has very nice memories from her time there. The level of care and attention the staff of Petits Pas offer is unparalleled and this makes the parents very assured that the children are in very safe hands. Thank you Petits Pas!


As a first time mother, I was told that one of the hardest moments a new mother will face is the start of the nursery experience for her precious little one and the courage that it takes to “let go”. In my case, I can only say that this moment was made so much easier for me at Petits Pas. The warmth of the staff members at this joyous Day Care has made this challenging experience a smoother one for my family and me. To my son’s second, home, I can only say thank you. Thank you for all the new words you have taught my son, thank you for the warmth of your smiles every day, thank you for the comfort you have provided Malek and thank you for being a daily part of my son’s joy in life.

A la très chère famille ” Petit Pas” Je suis sincèrement admirative de la capacité et de la manière professionnelle avec laquelle vous avez contribué à garder, à prendre soin et à éduquer mon Ange ‘NAY” depuis septembre 2010. Nay a déjà 4 ans et vous avez clairement, durant ces années, contribué à construire sa personnalité exceptionnelle grâce a vos efforts et votre professionnalisme.

Dear Petits Pas team, Once again, I would like to thank each and every person of you, randomly I name and thank Manal, Noha, Soumaya, Reem, Andrea, Samar, Hanane, Maya, I do not remember the names of all…I thank the entire team one by one, for the great job done for Mothers Day. It was a real success at all levels, you brought tears to my eyes, literally: The program was amazing, The dances were amazing, The costumes were amazing, The introductions were amazing, The gifts/give away were amazing, All the details were amazing. Special thanks to Soumaya, for the great effort she did, it is not easy at all to handle a class of little children dancing, I can see the great improvement in Adriana’s character, I have noticed on Soumaya’s face an amazing expression of joy and pride: she was entertaining this event as if she was entertaining guests in her own house. Special thanks to Noha, she is always all ears with a charming smile on her face, that is amazing, she is a good image of Petits Pas, she is the ideal profile of a person to represent Petits Pas. A greater thanks to Manal, I cannot find words to express my recognition to her, for always being cooperative and supportive, and for always dealing with problems with a high level of professionalism and know-how, Petits Pas is lucky to have Manal, she has a special gift to be able to control all kind of situations.
The team is excellent, it is amazing how each and every person plays her own role perfectly! May God bless all the team with little children and you become all moms.

Hanada (on behalf of Adriana and Gabriela)
