KBBO Education developed the Bright Kids Nursery brand around three core pillars of innovation, dreams, and connections to the future. We want to expose our children to a curriculum that will advance innovation, creativity, problem-solving and thinking skills that are transferable and empowering and prepares them for the future.

Bright Kids Nursery’s core curriculum is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) approach in Montessori settings while incorporating 21st-century Arabic Islamic learning. The Nursery has currently five branches based in Abu Dhabi catering to age group 0-4 years old.

Bright Kids Nursery’s approach to learning and early years’ education focuses on supporting kids through four areas, specifically Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

The Nursery also adopts neuro-science based learning strategies that are carefully mapped to the ways in which the brain develops.
