“We loved every aspect of LH, from the facilities, to the educational quality. But perhaps our favorite thing was the people. They are very caring and nurturing. We always felt that our daughters were in a safe and loving environment, which is invaluable as a parent. Both of our children progressed well in terms of their academic knowledge and their socialization. In fact, as they have gone on to grade school elsewhere, we have seen the advanced level of their skills compared to their peers. We know that LH was a big part of that. We were sad when our children grew out of LH and we would certainly enroll any other kids without hesitation (if we had them). Early education is an important step in setting a child?s life-long attitudes toward school and learning. LH is an ideal place to ensure that your kids start off with a positive experience that will help to equip them well for the future. We couldn't be happier with the role they played in our daughters' lives and I expect that many other parents feel the same way. ”

“Our son had a tremendously positive experience at Little Harvard Preschool. In the warm, nurturing and caring environment, he learned not only intellectually but also socially, linguistically, artistically and kinesthetically. Every school day he benefited from the varied and rich curriculum for learning about letters, numbers, shapes, colors, countries, stories, culture, history, art, exercise and so much more. The instructors are absolutely top-notch and truly care about creating a supportive, encouraging instructional environment for all the children. The children also learn effective interaction and communication skills with each other. Under the expert and inspired leadership of Director Mrs. Lena, Little Harvard stands head and shoulders above as the top preschool in Kuwait!”

“We're picky parents and we weren't satisfy of our daughter's progress in her previous nursery. When I heard about Little Harvard and went to check it out. The first thing that drew my attention was the cleanliness of the place!! And also the curriculum. Aaya has gained a lot of self-confidence (which what matters to us) and also we discovered her artistic talent (I'm so thankful for it). We really appreciate how Lena is taking every little detail in consideration.
I would definitely enroll all my children to Little Harvard since it provide all our needs like art, yoga, healthy food, a nurse, and space for learning and playing time. ”

“Our second day in Kuwait; desperately looking for a place where we could save the day, yet find a safe place for our beloved one.
There we found LITTLE HARVARD. We feel so blessed that our experience with Little Harvard has started and lasted to be incredibly and profoundly positive. The smile and the comfort on my son's face was the living proof that Little Harvard was the second home for us. The other indication which makes this nursery so unique, special, and different than other hundred ones is that your child will never want to leave when it is time for pick-up (You will know what I mean if you are a Little Harvard parent). It is not just all about Little Harvard; there is more, the quality education. As an educator myself, I can easily bear witness that your child will receive the most useful methods to improve his/her skills. They implement in their lesson plans more hands-on activities by which the kids learn while they have fun. Just to give specific example, my son discovered his resources as a learner and developed his skills. He was reading by the end of first year bit by bit. To top it all off, the friendly, helpful, and professional team has been always ready to support us in our child's education in every aspect. However, I feel the urge to take this opportunity to express my sincere and special appreciation for Mrs. Lena and Ms. Adrienne for being an awesome people not only with their friendly and easily approachable personalities but also with their educational perspectives. Due to their developing educational perspective, they have been keeping our kids minds growing To sum it up, it is not just a random nursery; it is LITTLE HARVARD like a quality brand name. I have been strongly recommending Little Harvard to the potential parents since the first month of our time with them. Little Harvard will always stay as a lovely place in our mind with only good memories; thanks to Mrs. Lena and her wonderful team.”

“The whole experience was enriching & exciting. Taking our little girl to the nursery was hard, like for any other parents facing separation anxiety, but with the experienced Little Harvard staff, adaptation was fast, and the little one felt at home quickly.
The school's management team is experienced and knowledgable of the requirements of children development and running a nursery, enabling an effective and productive learning experience. Little Harvard premises are new and clean, and management team pays utmost attention to hygiene and tidiness. In addition, the food plan is very balanced and beneficial for the children for their growth and health.
Academically, Little Harvard offers a solid and diverse curriculum. Fatema learned a lot in Little Harvard, which made her acceptance to her school much easier. By the time she was done, she was able to speak, count simple numbers & identify basic shapes.
We already enrolled our second girl in Little Harvard, and are sure that she'll get the same level of attention and care that her eldest got. We highly recommend Little Harvard to other parents, and are sure that they'll be satisfied with the schooling and care provided!”

It is a great stepping stone to higher education for the students as well the director provides a personal touch not seen in many of the bigger schools. Highest recommendation is given! Thank you Ms. Lena for all your kind care.”

“Our baby joined Little Harvard when she was just 18 months old. Even though she was the youngest child among her classmates the improvements in her behavior and social skills as well as her abilities in nursery rhymes, phonics and numbers have not gone unnoticed by us. I love the interaction between the school and the parents through the continuous meetings we have year round. It has given us the opportunity to join our children in celebrating many events. This has enabled us to create so many memories between my child and I. We are so grateful that our daughter joined a school that is welcoming and caring like Little Harvard and I would definitely recommend it to all our family members and friends.
Seeing our only child happy and excited to go to school every morning means the world to us and as parents we could not ask for more.”

“Since both of us are university faculty, choosing a preschool for our daughter Chloe was a thorough and meticulous process because we know that finding the right preschool is an essential and key milestone in her future education. As parents, we sought to give her the best foundation for learning, or at least that is what we hoped for. As soon as we set foot at Little Harvard, it just felt right! From the warmth of the staff to the professionalism of management, we knew it was where Chloe needed to be. From its colorful enticing rooms and artistic corridors to its very genuine hands-on village play area, without a doubt, it was everything a preschool should be and more. It was apparent that their teaching philosophy involved investing in uncovering a child’s natural curiosity as Chloe came home eager to explore her new found talents. Basically, Chloe broke out of her protective shell with comfort and ease. Ultimately, and without a doubt, Little Harvard is and will remain our first choice!”

“The best parts in little Harvard is the great social life and how you built the English language in a very special way as well as the activities that build the personality of the child in a very early age, Mubarak has gained a lot of habits from you and now he can speak very well English compared with his age and NOT to forget to mention that when he joined you he was not speaking anything as well as now he is more social, and you shared us rising him in a very class way so we can be proud of him and sure if we get any baby in the future I will not hesitate to enroll him and now Mubarak is presenting you wherever he goes due to his amazing personality and his fluent English language. In my opinion you are the best place to invest our child energy and our money to spend in that will lead to a successful foundation to build the future of our child education and I think any parent who want to get an education and upbringing should join little Harvard absolutely and I hope little Harvard become bigger and bigger in future.”

“Well lets start by saying awesome care givers: professional, friendly, knows the little details about your child and treat your kid individually.
Fawaz was having a great time in little harvard. His personality shined up and became more calm, confident and his vocabulary improved tremendously...he started talking in complete sentences:). Its paradise for kids! As a mother you want the best for your little one and definitely little harvard is the best preschool/ day care in Kuwait...hands down!They earned it with the amazing staff under the guidance with a wonderful management and fun curriculum. They speak with child with dignity and teach him manners. They care about a little human being not a robot,
even the nannies are so clean and passionate. You can simply leave your child at home with his nanny who can feed him and keep him clean but definitely you are depriving your child from a life experience: getting to explore the world in a perfect cherished environment. The classes are small and have all the needed to stimulate your kid's senses and intellectuality. He meets new people, different personalities and make new friends and nothing in the whole world going to replace this amazing journey with little Harvard. I miss all the staff especially the amazing teachers!
Thank you all for this beautiful place. Definitely will be coming back! ”

“When we were thinking to enroll our kids in a pre-school, we visited many of them to get a better idea regarding the quality of the staff, program, etc. When we met Lena at Little Harvard, she dealt with us in a professional way and described their program and the criteria to enroll their staff, which we thought it will be the best place to keep our kids most time of the day. Our kids did learn a lot and their personality improved dramatically. They gained a lot of information regarding science, numbers, and letters, speaking, and dealing with others. Both of my kids joined ASK this year, and I can see them moving smoothly in the new program with the confidence and the information they gained from Little Harvard. I did encourage already four families to consider Little Harvard for their kids and all of them are now in the program.”

“We were new to Kuwait looking for a preschool for our 3 year old and 19 month old when we found Little Harvard Preschool. From the first introduction and tour, before the school opened for the year, the professionalism and academic design of the school spoke to us. We met the director and parts of her family welcoming us to a new country with a warm and sincere greeting.
The valuable lessons that our children learned at Little Harvard were priceless and go beyond what we could do for them as parents. Not only did they learn the basic academic principles of letters, numbers, shapes, colors, songs, math, writing, etc, but also they were able to expand their experience with field trips, art, creative play, performances, singing, cooking, and science. They learned how to follow directions in a group environment, how to work together and get along with others, problem solve, team work, and other valuable life skills.
The qualified teachers and caring staff made it a positive learning environment that our kids loved going to school. Because of Little Harvard our kids were better prepared in transitioning to new school and were able to integrate into new environments with easy and confidence. I would definitely enroll our children again in the school and recommend Little Harvard to anyone who is looking for a comprehensive preschool to enroll their child(ren) in. ”

“If you want a preschool you can trust your child with and he goes every day with a huge smile on his face, then Little Harvard is the place!! Enrolling my son in Little Harvard is the best choice I could have made for him. The qualified and experienced staff are excellent and help the children learn in a fun and comfortable atmosphere. They even notice the smallest progress and changes that my son goes through. Through Little Harvard my son has learned how to follow rules, be creative and be confident by expressing his opinion and showing his personality all which helped him read and write simple words at a very early age. I am extremely happy with all that they provide and feel as if their learning system is personalised to my son! I can definitely see that he is happy and safe with little Harvard and I can't wait until my other son gets older so he can start with them!”

“I went over many schools to enroll my daughter. With one thought in my mind - healthy environment. And environment to me is staff and children. But what I saw since my first visit is that all the schools almost are the same! They are commercial schools! What I mean by commercial is the priority is the profit not the education or the children!
Then I came to Little Harvard and I loved the kind of children and the variety of nationalists and how the staff taking care and communicate with the children's and how the principle is there attending with patience! This what I saw as a healthy environment as a first impression. And regard the non-commercial school! After 2 years with you I’m totally sure Little Harvard is not a commercial school at all. Thank you for being unique.
I came in the second semester, so the kids was already half year educated more than her, especially she don't speak English, and you told me with confidence she will do great don't worry. So I followed with a big concern of making her uncomfortable and she will lose confidence, and after couple months I saw her in the stage and I know how shy my daughter is. BUT what happens is my daughter broke out from her shell and impressed ME and her teacher also with such confidence!! Lena if you didn't had the confidence in yourself and on your teachers it will never reached my daughter.
I been on the school daily, so I saw you on a busy day, events, trips days, pressure day and normal day. Actually Lena, you are making everything so simple and easy and you are doing it with passion. It looks like there are nothing sophisticated, only skills and professional People.

“Kevin was just over 18 months old when we first approached LH. As parents, my husband and I were looking for a daycare that regarded the safety and well-being of our child with utmost importance. LH came to be our first and only choice. The attention to detail LH pays in regards to childproofing the premises is meticulous, and the caring and nurturing environment promoted by all staff members and the director allowed Kevin to adjust very quickly to his new daycare surroundings. Apart from the various educational activities fit for his age, Kevin enjoys eating nutritious meals provided by LH chef as well as participating in fun and exciting field trips. Our son is learning so many things: what we love most is the fact that he is learning Arabic! For us, this is so important considering that we live in Kuwait. At the end of the day, Kevin’s happiness is our main concern. His smile when he arrives each morning and greets Teddy, the security guard, is testament to LH’s dedication and love for our child. We highly recommend your child be part of the LH family, too!”

“Two and half amazing years we were part of LITTLE HARVARD, I'm thankful for knowing this amazing school, best teachers and the best instructor I have ever met, they were family to us and to my little girl. I want to choose the best part of the school but really I cant choose, starting from the big morning smile at reception, the welcoming for the kids every morning and the sweet goodbye hug, the wonderful techniques they used to teach the kids, the way they treat each child as he or she so special. By those two year my daughter personality has really changed, she's now more independent, can express for herself and cooperate really well with others. A promising future starts with a good foundation structure and that what little Harvard does!”

“Little Harvard was outstanding in all regards. We would highly recommend the school to parents seeking high quality academic and social development opportunities for their children. The teachers and staff are passionate about providing a challenging, creative, and fun learning environment, which was evident in the artwork and academic work our children brought home each week, during the parents events which are hosted at the school numerous times throughout the year, and during the parent/teacher meetings. The staff is responsive and made the administrative aspects easy for us as parents, which was very important to us as expats living Kuwait. The diversity of the school provided our children with unique experiences and allowed our children to greatly enhance their language skills. We have departed Kuwait for a new work assignment, but both of our children still frequently ask when they can go back to Little Harvard! ”
