Our Teaching Assistants...
Our teaching assistants often have the trickiest work in the sense that it varies so much. Whilst they assist teachers and support teachers in the day to day running of the classroom, they are also responsible for much of the in-class administrative work. They create close bonds with the children much like any other staff member and bring with them experience in nurseries from either Doha or abroad. Teaching assistants are also either certified in early years education or in the process of obtaining certifications in the field.
