A place of discovery exploring and maximizing your child’s potential.
The Children’s Academy is Bahrain’s first ever, independent, dedicated special needs school opened in September 2008.
Situated in Riffa, the school is everything you would be looking for if you are a parent of a child that has special education needs. So much so, that parents who have previously seen their children struggling to achieve expected levels of attainment in a mainstream education establishment, should be especially pleased about this addition to Bahrain’s educational offering.
The Children’s Academy ensures the children are taught in classes with low teacher-pupil ratios and several teaching assistants in each class, to facilitate one-on-one attention. The children have access to the British National Curriculum, International Primary Curriculum, NCFE, BTEC and GCSEs.
All children have access to a high quality indoor and outdoor learning environments and a broad and balanced curriculum.
The Children’s Academy provides an individualized education within a nurturing learning environment offering high levels of academic and therapeutic support. At the heart of the school’s ethos is the belief that the development of a positive self-image is the key to the development of a child’s full potential. To this end, the school is committed to providing an educational environment in which all children can experience success.
The Children’s Academy is a world where children will also have their own individual Educational Plan and where targets are reviewed regularly enabling parents to understand every stage of the child’s progress.
The Children’s Academy has the luxury of having specialist comprehensive therapy services on site to offer a multi-disciplinary approach to the learning environment. The school offers two Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapist, and an Occupational Therapist; in addition, a Behaviour Therapist supports the school.
The Children’s Academy is unique to Bahrain in providing a highly specialized and professional facility that will awaken the child’s spirit.
