Admissions Process

At IDEA Early Learning Center, we welcome children from all nationalities and developmental stages.

To make an application, you can register your interest through our website, by calling us or by emailing. We will then ask you to complete an application form and pay a non-refundable registration fee of 500AED.

Our Director, Ashleigh, will review your application form and liaise with our Registrar, Natalie, to suggest a suitable time to meet you and your child. Where possible we will invite your child for an informal, playful assessment (Pre-KG, KG1 and KG2). We do like to meet every child that applies so that we can identify each child’s individual interests. Whilst your child is playing, our team will be happy to answer any remaining questions that you may have.

We will confirm whether we are able to offer your child a place at the earliest once the team has conducted a full review of the application.

After this point we will consider how best we can provide for your child. To secure your child’s place, we will send an offer letter and you will be required to accept within 7 days to secure the place. At this time, you will also be required to pay an admission fee (1000AED) and a medical fee (500AED). You will also need to submit the required documents for your child and family. If you are new to Dubai and your visa has not yet been processed, we are happy to accept your application whilst you gain these documents. We will need copies once your visa and Emirates ID have been granted.

Required Documents

  • • Completed and signed Application Form
  • • 4 Passport photographs for your child
  • • Copy of UAE Residence Visa for your child
  • • Copy of Emirates Identity Card for your child

Depending on availability we may be able to offer a place for your child immediately or your child’s name will be placed on a waiting list. Places are offered on a first come, first served basis to families on the waiting list.

Full enrollment occurs when fees have been paid and we have received the relevant documents.
