There's a new Nursery in town and I have to say it looks very good. Creative Initiative Montessori is a new Nursery that offers an alternative style of learning for your kids. It also offers daycare from 6am until 5pm - pretty handy for working parents! Normal hours are from 8:00 until 12:30.
Its co-owned by an American and an Omani who both have experience in working in a preschool and teaching. CIM caters to children from 3 months up to 3.5 years old - there are two programs. One is a daycare for the infants and toddlers up to 2 years old. At around 18 months, the children are gradually introduced to Montessori activities and at 2 years they are in the full Montessori program.
They are located in Ghala/Bawshar and you can find them right behind TAISM school. The term begins on 30 August 2015 and they plan to expand to KG1 and KG2 next year. In addition to that, they are working on affiliation with the American Montessori Society.
So if you are looking for a nursery for your kid(s) then this might be a good spot for you to check out, they're open for walk-ins every day between 8 and 12:30 at the moment and you can find more information on them at their website; www.cimnursery.com and at their Instagram @cimnursery
Their website is very comprehensive and gives a breakdown of the schedules for each day (something I didn't see on many other nursery websites when I was looking). Their fees are comparable to other nurseries around town and you can see their fees right there on their website too.
