IDEA Early Learning Center

To create a world-class learning environment, SBS Education supported the pre-operations project to open the inspiring IDEA Early Learning Center (ELC) for its September intake.

IDEA Early Learning Center (ELC) is owned by IDEA Education and will serve the Victory Heights community of Dubai.

Vision & curriculum

The ELC will follow the highly regarded Creative Curriculum from the US and is licensed in Dubai to operate from ages 1 to 6 with a total capacity of 240 children.

As the field of early childhood education has evolved, so too has the curriculum, incorporating the latest research and best practices and taking the needs of every type of learner into account.

The curriculum helps to create a learning environment that enables each child to become a creative, confident thinker. IDEA prepares children for the more formal curriculum and aligned with the English National Curriculum and the American Core Standards.

Children develop quickly in the early years and their experiences between birth and age six has a major impact on their future life chances.


We aimed to create an attractive, welcoming and stimulating learning environment that encourages children to explore, investigate and learn through first-hand experience. Activities are planned for both inside and outside learning, including water, sand, creative workshops, ICT, numeracy activities, drawing, with a strong programme for literacy, writing and reading, including languages.
