Arabian Child, a leading early childhood organization, partnered with Edarabia.com, the Middle East’s premier education community.

Online PR News – 23-May-2016 – Dubai – Arabian Child is a private not-for-profit organization that has trained thousands of teachers, parents, and police officers in the Middle East Region, and they have recently launched a new quality improvement program called “JAWDA” for nurseries, preschools and kindergartens, in UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman. Programs enrolled in JAWDA receive a tier level certification indicating the quality of the service provided to children and families in their community; Tier 1 to Tier 5 (Tier 5 indicates the highest level of quality).

Founded in 2005, Edarabia.com is the largest online education network and a trusted resource for parents and academic professionals. The website will develop a list of the top nurseries, preschools and kindergartens in the GCC indicating the tier level that they have achieved through the JAWDA program.

JAWDA, which means “quality” in Arabic, is a systemic approach to assess, improve, and communicate the level of quality in early care and education programs. Similar to rating systems for other service-related industries, quality ratings will be awarded to programs that meet defined program standards that go beyond the minimum licensing requirements.Through Edarabia.com, parents will be able to compare nurseries on the basis of their Jawda tier level and make an informed decision when choosing the right institution for their child.

Professionals will also be able to benefit from JAWDA resources that will be available through Edarabia.com to help them learn about quality standards and conduct self-assessments and prepare for quality improvement plans.

It's an important association for Arabian Child who view their strategic partnership with EdArabia as a way to educate parents, and professionals about quality in early years.

Samia Kazi, the General Manager of Arabian Child adds: “JAWDA combines the international best practices in early years settings integrated with the local culture and Arabic heritage, helping to prepare our children to their fullest academic potential while respecting our culture, and maintaining citizenship and moral values."We are very proud to partner with Edarabia.com to raise awareness about JAWDA in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.
