Innovation in education has evolved beyond mere buzzwords – it's now a critical force driving change in schools and early learning centres across the UAE. These institutions are transcending traditional boundaries to enhance learning outcomes. This forward-looking approach ensures children are not just prepared for higher education but are also equipped with knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of tomorrow's world.

Gulf News Edufair Schools & Nurseries – taking place on March 2-3 at Villa Rotana on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai – illustrates this educational transformation shaping the UAE’s education sector. By bringing together some of the UAE's leading schools and early learning centres in one place, it offers parents a unique opportunity to interact directly with educators and understand how schools are reshaping the educational landscape. Edufair is more than just an exhibition; it's a platform driving education forward into the future.

“At Edufair, we will highlight how we integrate our experiential learning zones like Immersion Room, Black Box Room, and Music Room into our curriculum, as we believe that education goes beyond the walls of the classroom,” says Jasmit Kang, Principal at Glendale International School, which has confirmed its participation for the event.

After organising five successful iterations of Edufair for higher education, Gulf News has expanded this platform to include schools and nurseries and help families select the right educational path for children. Leveraging Gulf News’ track record of guiding thousands of students in achieving their higher education aspirations in both the UAE and abroad, the inaugural Edufair Schools & Nurseries edition aims to empower families with essential information to navigate their children's educational paths with confidence and clarity.

As new trends emerge and the number of schools and nurseries increases, picking the right school has become really challenging. With so many choices, parents must carefully consider many factors before making such an important decision.
