At IDEA ELC we are committed to ensuring that we provide for a variety of cultures and heritages. Throughout the year we hold celebrations of many different types. Our parents feedback to us that their families feel valued as part of our community. We are particularly proud that a significant number of our families are Emirati. These families are invaluable towards helping us to promote the UAE’s National Agenda and to appreciating the UAE’s Culture and Values. Each day all of children sing the UAE National Anthem and they are exposed to Arabic language. We have a specialist Arabic teacher twice a week who tailors her activities to the age and stage of development of our children. Our children are part of an inclusive community that feels proud to live, learn, work and play in the United Arab Emirates.
