“The early years are so important for children as it provides them with the core foundation skills they need to succeed through life. Parents frequently comment on how they have seen their children grow into confident skilled young people and I am flattered that they assign their confident personalities and success down to the quality of nursery education they received during their nursery years”
“The Tiffin’ is a lovely nursery where we have created a wonderful and supportive community of family and friends.
My involvement with The Tiffin, Windsor relationship has strengthened each year and we truly share the same principles. The British EYFS curriculum has seen many changes over the years and keeping up with these changes is a challenge. The Windsor has excelled at embedding the British standard educational practices we operate in the UK. The Windsor has a strong British & UAE partnership which I am very proud to be associated with. The nursery is successfully delivering a high quality care and education provision to a truly exciting multicultural community.
I am proud to be the Nursery Education Director supporting and mentoring a bright and talented team of educators and practitioners all for the benefit of the people that really matter… the ‘#windsorkids’.
