Asia Ali - Principal

I am Ms.Asia Ali Alomary, I am the Principal of Bright Kids Nursery Bain Al Jesrain Branch.

Each child has his own private entry and we in Bright Kids strive to recognize those keys to be able to enter their world. To teach them what builds their character and make them future leaders. We believe that every child is a creator and that every child has the intelligence to distinguish him from others. Bright kids explore and   discover these potentials and refined them by directed play and joyful learning to build their confidence in making right choices and decision.

Through my vast experience as a teacher and trainer I dealt with children ages 1 year to 15 years old. I realized that the right age to embrace the future of a child is in his early years before reaching the 6th years of his age. What adults do not realize is that children at this age are more like of a small sponge and can learn and absorb everything given to them. This continuous learning and absorption work as feeder for their brains and souls. This enrichment of information and learning will be successful when we find the kids using the knowledge and bring it down to their surroundings.

I have seen creativity, potential and enthusiasm in children during their early years development and you can relate to them once you sail into their world.

My message to all the parents and teachers is to believe in your children’s ability, be part of their development and you will be proud of what they have become.

My name is Heba Bou Diab, and I’m in charge of all the students between the age group 1 to 3 years old.
