Your child would rather learn than do anything else in the world. He learns by doing and the younger he is the easier it is.
— Remedios E. Chu, Founder

Giving your child a bright start.

Since 1999, De La Salle Montessori (DLSM) Nursery – Dubai has been providing high quality early childhood education and care. It is our mission to provide young children and their families with an extension of home - a safe, warm, protective, nurturing, enriched and social environment with a family-like atmosphere where children are prepared to reach their highest potential and become successful global citizens of the future.


With the principle of 'education as a growth process' and a proven system of guided activity, DLSM gives young children the opportunity to develop and master basic skills and learn desired values and attitudes, by being pro-active participants of the learning experience.

Unlike in other nursery schools, our students enjoy purposeful play, while learning educational basics including language, science and math, complemented with arts and culture, as well as, social and practical life.  Through the tried and tested Montessori curriculum, we nurture knowledge and creativity, while giving importance to individuality.

With our proven “whole child” approach, we are proud to have helped shape students who have entered the primary school system and excelled, not only in academics, but also in sports, leadership and extracurricular activities.


Supporting working parents and their young, DLSM provides, not only competent daycare services, but most importantly, a caring and safe atmosphere worthy of parents’ trust.


We welcome families with children aged 1.5 months to 4 years to our program which allow children to grow, learn and explore in a unique atmosphere purposely created for them.



DLSM is staffed by professional and experienced educators and administrators, as well as an in-house certified nurse.  All of our teachers and teachers assistants are Montessori trained, and all of our staff, from management to support employees are trained for pediatric first aid. 


Located in a quiet residential area in Mankhool-Karama, just walking distance from the Karama Metro Station, DLSM is housed in a bright one-storey villa, well-equipped with a nursery, roomy classrooms with a good variety of learning materials, a playroom for fun time, a library, a mini music hall for performances, an efficient canteen and clinic and well-kept playgrounds. 

Our environment is carefully designed to meet the varying needs of the early years and emphasize joy in the learning process.  We also go beyond typical classrooms with our 'practical life theater' where children can learn basic life skills.


AT DLSM, we keep our class sizes small with a maximum of 18 children for each class led by a teacher and an assistant teacher.  This ensures that your young ones are taught and assisted properly.




The kids love you all!

Thank you for taking such wonderful care of all the children - Salem, Nasra and Yumna Al Sayegh.  The care, patience and obvious love you all have for the kids are evident in everything you do for them.  The kids love you all. 

Thank you De La Salle Montessori for always giving me that sense of peace when I drop them off.  I know they'll be cared for like they're your own.  Thank you.

I found DLSM excellent in building a strong foundation for my son's academic and personal development.  More power!
