Welcome to GEMS Legacy School - Dubai (formerly known as The Kindergarten Starters, Dubai), a modern kindergarten in Dubai that provides children from kindergarten to grade 5 with the very best start to their education. Established in 1990, this outstanding primary school in Dubai lays the foundations for every child to continue the pursuit of excellence.

Conveniently located, this primary school on 2nd street, Garhoud, Dubai follows a bespoke and unique curriculum that reflects our diverse student population and international outlook.

The GEMS Legacy School Curriculum

In the kindergarten, there has been a shift from specific subject content such as English and maths, to a more skills based approach to learning, which develops the personal, social, language, creative and enquiry skills of all our young learners. 

Our unique primary curriculum aims to provide a broad range of learning opportunities and encourage a rich variety of experiences and approaches that cater to the specific needs of each child. This is designed to nurture our students and help them develop in every aspect of their lives.

As one of the best equipped primary schools in Dubai, we boast facilities that cater to the diverse tastes of all our young learners. We have a multimedia and ICT centre to expose children to IT from an early age; a safe, secure play area; activity rooms to make learning fun and exciting; a science and maths resource centre; a dance room; a music and art room; and our very own traffic park to improve road safety – basically everything your child needs to keep them on their toes!

This is supplemented by a wide range of extra-curricular activities, from performing arts and creative communication to the visual arts, sports and P.E.

GEMS Legacy School is a unique educational environment. It is a place where we have committed ourselves to the vision of raising achievement, raising aspirations and enriching partnerships. It is through this that we create a focus on student success. The school has built a reputation for the quality of its work, from developing teaching and learning to the extra-curricular opportunities.

There is no doubt that the achievement of our students is built upon the partnership between students, parents and staff. Through the quality of the teaching and learning, the student support and commitment to extra-curricular activities we create the building blocks of success.

The school has chosen to place itself at the forefront of educational development, the focus on developing learning environments and a commitment for GEMS Legacy School to be inclusive, with unique ways to help all students continue their learning. We want to continue to create the opportunities for all to succeed.

As a school, we recognize the importance of the global dimension and the need to prepare our students with the cross cultural competency skills to take their place in an ever changing global economy. The links we have with a number of countries are a big part of this and create opportunities for students to experience this first hand.

The GEMS Legacy School raises awareness and cultivates understanding on sustainable practices, acknowledging the important connection between educational development and a sustainable learning environment to develop environmentally conscious global citizens. Our role as a school is to promote climate literacy, increase resilience in communities, mitigate climate change and change the behaviours of all our stakeholders and the wider community. Our vision is to make every person aware and accountable for creating an equitable and sustainable future..

The school prides itself on its innovative and rich curriculum. We place a strong emphasis on working with parents and the community, enabling all students to maximise their abilities, ambitions, and academic potential in everything they do.

We welcome students of determination and ensure that each one receives a high quality of education. Along with intellectual diversity, the differing life experiences and approaches our staff bring to our school help us understand and meet their needs and the needs of our work’s ultimate beneficiaries - our students. With diversity and inclusion as priorities, we work towards achieving our mission.

Young people are at the very heart of the school and although we value academic performance, we believe that students should enjoy their time at school and achieve across a whole range of areas. We provide a happy and safe environment within which students can experience opportunities beyond the classroom so that they can become independent learners and responsible and confident adults. We foster values of courtesy, consideration and individual responsibility and offer a high level of challenge accompanied by equally high levels of support.

I firmly believe that a strongly led school is strongly led by many. I know that with the excellent staff team we have here we have the ability to ensure that your child achieves the very best. Through partnership we continue to enhance and strengthen the success of GEMS Legacy School

I am looking forward to continuing this process with you.

Sincerely on behalf of all of us at Gems Legacy School.
