Early Explorers is the flagship nursery of Scholars International Group, a Dubai based school group that has been educating children in the UAE for the last 45 years.

From our first school Dubai Scholars Private School (Al Qusais), which was opened in 1976, to our second school, Scholars International Academy (Sharjah), opened in 2007, to our third school, Clarion School (Al Qouz), opened in 2016, to our newest addition, Early Explorers Nursery (located within the Al Zahia community, Sharjah), our mission has remained consistent; to enrich the education provision for the children of the UAE.

Purpose-built, supported by high-quality resources and open spaces, and staffed by passionate educators, Early Explorers provides children with a nurturing environment that supports their overall development, and also fosters their love for learning!

At our nursery, we create opportunities for play, discovery, and exploration unique to each child so when your child transitions into their next chapter of schooling they are confident, curious, and passionate learners.

Key areas we focus on:

  • Communication skills
  • Physical development
  • Personal/social/emotional development
  • Understanding of the world
  • Mathematics concepts
  • Language development
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Nursery Environment

Our bespoke environments, both indoor and outdoor, support a warm and welcoming atmosphere that allows children to be actively playing, thinking critically, developing the skills they need to become independent thinkers and strong communicators.

Through play, we nurture children’s imagination, curiosity and give them a sense of adventure. Encouraging children to voice their curiosity is an important part of Early Explorers. For this reason, we have carefully chosen numerous open-ended authentic resources for our children to explore that are in line with our curriculum approach, and that reflect real-life experiences.


Our community

At Early Explorers, we are committed to making our nursery a place where ‘every child is special’. Our dedicated team go above and beyond on a daily basis to nurture the spark of magic in every child. When a new family joins us, they become a part of our warm Early Explorers community. Our parents have opportunities to actively participate at the nursery activities and events, and to help foster a spirit of inclusion, partnership, and cooperation.

We are small enough to be bespoke. Big enough to thrive!
