EYES (Early Years Educational Services) started life in 2008 from the living room of our CEO, Sarah Rogers. Having worked in the British Primary sector in Dubai for 9 years, Sarah recognised the need for the training and retraining of Early Years professionals in the UAE. With the ethos of giving every child the best possible start in life, Sarah set out to raise the quality of standards of those working within the educational field in the region, thus providing a benchmark for others.
Eight years on, we have come a long way since our humble beginnings! We now have two centres, one in Dubai and the other in Abu Dhabi. As well as this, in 2014 we opened our sister company QuEST and we don’t plan on stopping there!
What we do
Our goal is to help people achieve UK and internationally accredited qualifications and CPD (Continuous Professional Development) through education and training. Our courses are accredited by well-known awarding bodies including CACHE, NCFE and Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance. We also provide invaluable consultancy services that cater to a range of different needs.
Who we are
We are a team of highly skilled and qualified educational professionals with years of experience in the Early Years field. With team members who have worked all over the globe, including the UK and here in the UAE, training with us ensures for knowledgeable, supportive and enjoyable learning.
Who we work with
We work with individuals of all different levels. From Level 1 and 2 qualifications for those hoping to enter or newly entered into the Early Years field to Level 3 and 4 for more experienced practitioners, right up to Level 5 for Early Years managers.
We also partner with Early Years settings that want to train their staff through long term accredited routes or short term CPD. In addition to this, we provide consultancy services to new and existing Early Years settings.
What makes us different/Why choose us?
At EYES, we are highly passionate about what we do. Not only were we the first CACHE centre in the region, we are also proud to be the gold standard for educational training establishments in the UAE. Our courses are accredited by the KHDA and are MOSA approved. We have an excellent reputation within the educational community here and maintain successful partnerships with over 450 different educational settings. As well as this, we not only deliver training here in the UAE but through demand have worked across the GCC and South East Asia. In 2015 we won the MEED ‘Mastercard Small Business of the Year Award’, which was a great recognition of the work we do.
What others say
“I would like to thank Lara, Sarah and all of the Quest and EYES team for their continued support to the Kiddy Planet team. I personally learnt a lot from them. They helped in improving our setting from 2013 until now and I hope we can do more in the coming years. ”

“I have been fortunate in my educational life and had wonderful teachers and mentors, by following their steps I became a passionate teacher, visionary leader and role model to inspire my team. Every mentor is unique, during my CACHE Leadership diploma in 2015-16, I found an amazing mentor-Ms Lara Hudson. We have built a strong relationship based on trust and openness. She has challenged me at all times to push myself harder to achieve new targets. I’d been mentored many times, but this experience was really different. Ms Lara was, and still is, available and willing to listen and guide me whenever I need her expertise. No doubt, she is motivating, inspiring and enthusiastic. And last but not least, she has an amazing sense of humor, which makes her sessions fun, engaging and lively.
In Homer’s Odyssey circa 800 BC a mentor was appointed to watch Odysseus’s son Telemachus whilst he was at the Trojan Wars. But I believe, Mentor and Telemachus are still found in this modern era. And I found a unique mentor during my CACHE Level 5 diploma, back in 2015-16 with EYES-Ms Sarah Rogers. She is an approachable counselor, trusted advisor, a challenger and an encourager. Ms. Sarah is a knowledgeable and resourceful person who helped me to develop personal and professional capabilities and guided and suggested how to develop certain skills to perform well in my leadership role.
I want to express my deepest gratitude for believing in me Ms Sarah. You have been a great source of inspiration for me and I value everything I have learned from you.
