Expat parents with little ones too young to start primary school will find plenty of options for nursery schools in Dubai, including Montessori nursery schools. Some popular nurseries cost almost as much as regular school and can have long waiting lists, so expats should enquire early.

It's important to check specifics with each school, but most are open for four to five hours in the morning and close at lunchtime. Many allow parents to choose how many days their child attends during the week, allow early drop-offs, provide lunches, or have optional afternoon programmes for working parents.
