Hamel Al Mesk Nurseries offers a creative curriculum for infants all the way through Kindergarten. Our curriculum is based on 75 years of childhood and learning studies and involves research-based developmentally appropriate practice which according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) “provides children with the opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills. It offers challenges just beyond the level of their present mastery and it takes place in the context of a community where children are safe and valued, where their physical needs are met, and where they feel psychologically secure.” (Bredekamp & Copple, 1997). Developed in the United States, at the heart of the Creative Curriculum is deep knowledge of child development theory and careful consideration of the latest research in the field of early childhood education to benefit early learners. It is also aligned with the US Common Core, IB PYP and UK EYL curriculums.
