Where possible we will invite your child for an informal, playful assessment (usually Pre-KG, KG). We do like to meet every child that applies. After this point we will consider how best we can provide for your child. We’ll make a decision within a few days and we’ll contact you. We will require you to pay an Admission Fee prior to your child starting at HAMEL AL MESK. You will also need to submit the required documents for your child and family.
Places are offered on a first come, first served basis to families on the waiting list. Full enrolment occurs when fees have been paid and all required documents have been received. Please see the Admissions Process section of the website for details on which documents.

Our curriculum has a strong focus on Communication Skills. We know that sometimes children can’t share their thoughts with you. For some it is because they haven’t got the skills yet, for others it is simply that what happened in the morning seems like it was a lifetime ago by the evening! We will provide your child with a voice. Personal communication is key so we share information with you during drop offs and collection. Photographs of their activities. We are committed to sharing their progress with you in many ways. Sometimes we will be so excited to share their achievement with you that we will send a snapshot of it home on the very same day! We will provide a termly summary and an end of year report which will detail how your child has made progress, their particular strengths and any areas for development.
At Hamel Al Mesk Nurseries, we strongly feel that learning through play is paramount. We also believe that sensory, messy, tactile, risky, real-life and spontaneous learning opportunities are what help to bring the best out of your child. Our activities will both be a mix of taught and self-initiated, ranging across all areas of the curriculum. We place an emphasis on Language and Literacy learning.
If you register your child for our aftercare provision, they will be busy consolidating skills through play in the activities room, outside on the bikes and trikes, making crafts, using technology and learning new games, all under the guidance of our skilled teaching assistants. If you register your child or create an art masterpiece.
