United Arab Emirates; December 2015 – The prestigious French company, Babilou Group, opened its first Signature Nursery in Downtown Dubai, in November 2015 and announced the opening of its second branch in Umm Suqeim in the coming few weeks.
His Excellency the Ambassador of France to the UAE, Mr. Michel Miraillet and the General Consul of France in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, Mr. Majdi Abed inaugurated Babilou Downtown on November 25th 2015, showing their support to the growth of the European Early Education Leader. This Nursery represents a milestone in Babilou’s international development since the group decided, in 2014, to expand its operations outside Europe, where it is already managing a network of 850 Nurseries and Early Learning Centers.
Babilou Downtown is located at the ground floor of the Emaar building 8 Boulevard Walk.
The Nursery welcomes children every day from 8 am to 6 pm throughout the year without interruption. Babilou’s Early Education Experts teach English, French and Arabic in a cozy, safe and carefully designed environment. Babilou Downtown, like every other Babilou Signature Nursery, aims to be a welcoming second home for children and their families. The Nursery team is composed by qualified professionals who have the skills and competencies to care for children and help them develop in the best conditions possible while respecting their individuality. The usage of wifi, microwaves and electronic devices is strictly forbidden to ensure maximum safety.
The main mission of the reputable French Early Education Expert is to provide families with reliable, high quality and accessible early childhood facilities to help parents achieve a better work-life balance and gain peace of mind and empower women in their professional life.
Babilou handles internally the design of its Signature Nurseries with a multi-disciplinary team of early childhood professionals and specialized architects and designers. Everything is carefully studied to promote children’s alertness and socialization whilst respecting the environment.
They create a personalized universe that is up to children’s standards: all furniture, toys and equipment are age appropriate and promote comfort and security. The Nurseries include spacious classrooms, comfortable sleeping rooms, feeding and breastfeeding rooms, libraries and play areas to create a harmonious and stimulating living space.
Designers also ensure the child’s physical security by meticulously adhering to high standards of hygiene and security maintained at all times.
Ultimately, hospitality is Babilou’s core business: build a strong human relationship between the Nursery team and a family, between an educator and a child. The Nursery teams aim to support children in building their own identity, self-discovery and awakening, while respecting their own pace and their uniqueness.
Ibtissem Rezaig, proud mother of Farah, 12 months, is a loyal parent who moved with Babilou from Paris to Dubai. She says:
“My daughter Farah was in a Babilou Nursery in Paris, so we were delighted to know that Babilou was present in Dubai. My experience with Babilou was very positive and Farah loved it! The staff were lovely and there was a real educational program and awakening. Moreover, Babilou Dubai offers the Montessori Method, it delights me even more. For me, Babilou is the guarantee to have peace of mind and know my child is safe and fulfilled!”
Babilou has 5 core values which inspire them daily, internally with the teams, partners, towards families and most importantly the children are:
- Kindness: being attentive to one another, respect each other, treat others fairly, and being supportive of children, parents, teams, and partners.
- Commitment: working while being aware that families are entrusting Babilou, with what is the most important person in their lives and that Babilou decisions have a major impact on the children and their welfare.
- Diversity: recognizing the variety of cultures and the individual uniqueness of personalities and all that they bring.
- Quality: Working every day to improve the care for our children and their families, the well-being of Babilou teams and the satisfaction of Babilou clients.
- Team spirit: believing in each one’s talent, in the collective intelligence and responsibility. Considering that working together is strength and that everyone can contribute. Being supportive and knowing how to overcome challenges and celebrate achievements in order to grow together.
Like in Europe, Babilou also provides consultancy services: the Nursery group works with companies who wish to create a Nursery or Early Learning Center for their employees inside or outside their premises.
