Acorn 1 - Abu Hamour

The Abu Hamour branch is the longest established of our nurseries, having been founded in 2011. It combines an intimate, small school environment with the highest standards of care and education.

It is located in a converted villa in the Abu Hamour area of Doha, close to Dar As Salaam mall. The villa has been extensively adapted for use as a nursery, while the external environment includes a climbing wall, water wall, sandpit and extensive shading.


The centre is British managed, following the EYFS curriculum from the UK. Teaching is coordinated by an experienced and fully qualified British Lead Teacher with recent experience of managing a nursery in the UK. She brings with her extensive knowledge of the EYFS and current UK best-practice.


We are located in Abu Hamour at 90 Heenat Al Meashab, between the old Wholesale Market and Al Mamoura. This provides easy access from the Doha Expressway (D Ring Road) and the Salwa Road.

The nursery is just a short drive from The Doha College, American School Doha, Al Jazeera Academy, Park House British School, Doha British School and many other leading international private schools.

Driving directions:

From Doha College / American School Doha cross over the Salwa Road at Qatar Decor. Go straight across Haloul Street (the road to the Wholesale Market) at the roundabout. Pass the Dar As Salaam shopping complex (look out for the Carrefour sign) on your right.

Turn right at the new traffic signals immediately after Dar As Salaam Compound. We are 200 metres up this road on the right hand side. You will see the sand-coloured, cloth car shades out the front of the nursery, immediately after crossing over two speed humps in the road.
