WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TERMS?
We have two primary terms. They are our Solar Term (February – June) and Lunar Term (September – January).
HOW MANY SESSIONS IN A MONTH/TERM?
In a term, there are a total of 25 sessions. There are 5 sessions per month for every batch including 4 regular sessions and one synergy session which involves the batch mixing together with another batch to encourage the exchange of new concepts and ideas.
HOW MANY STUDENTS PER BATCH?
In a Communication Skills or Speech & Drama batch, there would be approximatley 8 – 12 students. An Art batch would have approximately 4 – 6 students.
DO YOU GIVE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION?
A large part of The Gaia Centre’s beliefs and values is the attention to every individual learner. We believe that each student is different and cannot be taught in the same way, therefore our methods are constantly adapting and evolving so that each learner has an experience that benefits them the most.
WHAT ABOUT SPRING, SUMMER AND WINTER BREAKS?
Our Solar Term will still be on going through Spring break, while we have a break for winter that comes towards the end of our Lunar Term. During the summer we conduct a Summer Camp.
WHAT IS THE FEE STRUCTURE?
Our Fee structure can vary depending on the learner’s age, batch and subject. Contact us to get more information.
DO YOU PROVIDE ANY CERTIFICATION?
Yes, we certainly do. We have both an in-house exam that results in a certificate from us and we prepare candidates for Trinity College London International Exams that will lead to an International Certification from them.
ARE YOU APPROVED BY THE KHDA?
The Gaia Centre is an educational institute approved by the KHDA.
DO YOU PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION?
The Gaia Centre does not provide transportation at this time. We think it is important to see and get to know all our parents and learners really well. Pick up and drop off is often a good time for that. We know it can be a little troublesome at times, but we think its worth it.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT TRINITY COLLEGE.

WHAT IS DREAMSPEAK?
Every year The Gaia Centre puts up its annual showcase Dreamspeak. It is a grand production that requires that effort of all the students and staff. Art students design props, sets, costumes and makeup. While our Drama students act it out. An original and new concept script is thought up and carried out every year just for the show.
DO WE HAVE TO DO AN EXAM?
Not Necessarily. The Team here will advise on what they think is best for your learner. The practical exam is a solid benchmark for students to work towards, but an exam is definitely not a compulsory task here at The Gaia Centre.
DO YOU GIVE HOMEWORK?
Yes, we do. If a trainer feels as though a homework task will help the learner grow then homework will be given. The Gaia Centre believes in the use of loads of fun and games to help conduct our lessons, but hard work and will power is also something we prize and cultivate here.
CAN I WATCH MY CHILD IN CLASS?
Sorry but that is not something we allow. This is to ensure that learning is completely student-oriented and to ensure that students are working independently. Parental presence may have an impact on the learning and social interaction that will take place in class.
DO YOU OFFER A TRIAL CLASS?
A Trial Class is offered, with the intention of providing a prospective student with an insight into to the inner workings of a class at Gaia. A payment of 150 AED is required.
HOW CAN I PAY?
You can pay through either Cash, Cheque or Bank transfer. For any other details or queries on this matter, please contact us.
