Meet Vanessa Temple

An excellent education is one of the building blocks of a child's life. Meet Vanessa, an integral part of Hartland as Head of Foundation Stage.

Updated 21-April-2015  

Hartland International School continues to attract the very best in education specialists.  Meet Vanessa.

Vanessa worked in the UK before spending the past 20 years experiencing Early Childhood Education in Hong Kong, Shanghai and other Asian capitals, working with children from all over the world.  The ability to understand and develop strong relationships with children of all nationalities is a godsend in Dubai which has nearly 200 different nationalities living side-by-side. Vanessa is very excited to be returning to work in Dubai where her familiarity with many different cultures will be an added bonus for the children studying at Hartland International School.

Travelling with her rescue-cat, Lola, adopted from Dubai in 2000, she enjoys cooking dishes from places she has lived and spending time at her home in Phuket.

Vanessa, Head of Foundation Stage, is available during the working week (Sunday-Thursday 08.30-16.30)  in Hartland’s Discovery Centre in Business Bay or you can arrange an appointment outwith those hours by calling +971 4 551 9276.
