Premium Academic Plans.



Professional Minds has helped to set up over 20 nurseries and early learning centres in the UAE, since 2012. Writing strategic academic plans has been a key to this success.

Licensing Your Nursery 

Within the early education sector in the UAE:


  • The KHDA licenses early childhood centres ('ECC's) in Dubai.

  • ADEK licenses nurseries in Abu Dhabi.

  • SPEA has the matching role in Sharjah.

Academic plans must be prepared before early learning centres and nurseries secure a license for operating. 

The academic plan (now called the 'Education and Care Plan (ECP) in Dubai), will provide you with a blueprint for your early childhood centre/nursery, setting out foundational elements of best practices.


It documents the curriculum, organisational structure, as well as defining applicable policies and procedures; in line with current UAE standards for early childhood education and development.

Professional Minds gives you peace of mind through reliable, research - based advice. It is a one stop for reliable information, offering you:

  1. Comprehensive and tailored Plans.

  2. Strict adherence to regulations and standards.

  3. Demonstrated expertise with a track record of delivering exceptional results.
