ask louiseQuestionI’m a British citizen and I recently received a job offer in Dubai, and had a few questions as I’m largely unfamiliar with the country.

I have a 2.8 year old daughter, and given my ludicrous proposed schedule, I will need her to attend a preschool that can accommodate her from around 7:30 AM till around 6:00 PM from Saturdays through Wednesdays/Thursdays (my days off are Thursdays and Fridays, and would therefore like to share those days with my daughter). It’s fine if I had to enroll her at a separate “camp”-like center on Saturdays.

I was wondering if there were good (competitive, academically/emotionally sound) preschool/after-school programs that can accommodate my needs that cost up to AED 36-40,000  per annum?

Also, is Islamic education mandatory. or is it optional for expats? Read more

ask louiseQuestionPlease can you help me suggest a few nurseries for my baby who is due in August this year. Because of work commitments I will need to place him in Nursery at the beginning of his 4th month. We are moving to Jumeirah Village Circle in a few weeks and I work in Tecom (Barsha side) so wondered if you could suggest a few places to look at. Read more

ask louiseQuestionHello – There’s a strong possibility that my husband will be getting a new job and we will be relocated to Dubai. I have been on many different websites regarding life in Dubai. One thing I saw on-line is that kids attend school on Sundays. I also read how the weekend in many Middle East countries is Thursday and Friday. I just wanted to ask someone who lives in Dubai if this is the case for all schools for younger children (my eldest daughter is 5 and youngest just turned 2). We have lived the expat life for quite some time in other countries and have had to adjust to different cultures but sending my kids to school on Sunday seems difficult to adjust to especially when my husband will be working 9am – 9pm Mon – Fri for the first year so he will hardly get to see our girls. Can you please provide some tips on this and if all schools require the children to attend school Sunday – Thurs in Dubai? If this deal comes off for my husband we will move at the end of March of this year and with all the waiting lists, I am guessing my eldest daughter would not start school until September?? Thank you so much for any help you can provide. Read more
