KEY Nurseries is a network that aims to provide children
with a rich educational environment that helps build their
KEY Nursery offers children opportunities to grow in a
unique child-centric environment that fosters diversity,
language development, and child empowerment.
The nurseries achieve this goal through the KEY System®, a
comprehensive and coherent curriculum taught in French,
Arabic, and English.
Our nurseries’ curriculum
caters to children’s needs starting from 2 months to 4 years
and 9 months of age. Across five class levels, our
instructors and educational experts ensure that children
receive the attention and learning they need at their
specific age level, to develop into well-rounded young
individuals who have the skills needed to leave the nursery
and be successful in their educational and life journey.
At our nurseries, the curricula is delivered by having
children with varying abilities and interests work together
in small groups on open-ended, short and long-term projects
that aim to provoke children’s creative thinking and
problem-solving abilities and allow different possibilities
of exploration, enabling children to develop skills in a
variety of areas.

Curriculum & Methodology
KEY Nursery follows a well-established educational
approach, the KEY System®, which provides children with
an early childhood education that is project based,
child-centric and multilingual.
The system has been carefully put together by our
team of education experts who understand that the
first several years of a child’s life are critical
to their long-term development.
system draws on international best practices in
early childhood education and delivers a
comprehensive program that allows children to become
active participants in their own development,
opening the way toward optimal growth and learning.
It also enables children to develop critical life
skills and become well-rounded individuals who have
the ability to face the challenges and journey of
The KEY System® is based on children’s needs, academic
curiosity, and socio-cultural concerns. Because language
is an important development catalyst we offer
instruction in several languages. Not only does that
support children’s cognitive development, but it helps
prepare them to engage with today’s diverse world, and
ensure they have a greater chance at succeeding both in
their educational and life paths. The KEY System® also
has the unique feature of adapting to language.
Our curricula focus on five key areas: cognitive,
linguistic, social, emotional, and physical development.
Cognitive development involves reasoning, intelligence,
language development, and memory. Linguistic development
involves comprehension, expression, and communication.
Social development includes hygiene, interpersonal
skills, and self-management skills (autonomy). Emotional
development is the ability to experience, regulate and
express a range of emotions. Physical development
involves fine motor skills and gross motor skills. By
providing instruction tailored to building these five
areas, children leave our nurseries with critical early
skills and competencies.
At all the nurseries, the curricula are delivered by
having children with varying abilities and interests
work together in small groups on open-ended, short and
long-term projects that aim to provoke children’s
creative thinking and problem-solving abilities and
allow different possibilities of exploration, enabling
children to develop skills in a variety of areas.
At KEY Nursery we believe that all children, with or without
special needs, should have a positive educational experience
and opportunity to develop their skills and abilities among
their peers. We also believe that other children benefit
from a diverse range of peers, as such exposure ensures that
they grow up with an open mind and open heart.
As such, our nurseries aim to provide an inclusive
environment where every child is embraced. In that respect,
we welcome special needs children and offer them equal
opportunities to experience our unique curriculum and
