What Staff Are Saying

“Since starting at kidsFIRST in November 2011, I feel I have been well supported by my colleagues and have become part of the kidsFIRST family. I love working alongside other professionals who have a similar passion to me to improve the lives of children and families. I feel we all work hard and are dedicated to making a difference to the children that we work with.”

“We are blessed for the lives we touch are special.” I truly feel blessed belonging to the kidsFIRST family! Since I joined kidsFIRST in 2009, I have grown as a professional where therapy transcends all boundaries of disciplines and all therapists work together blending in expertise from different fields to come up with the best possible treatment approaches for children. The multidisciplinary approach at kidsFIRST is amazing, and we see that in the success of every kidsFIRST child that comes our way!”

“Coming alone from South Africa to the UAE in January 2012 was both scary and exciting. Everyone at kidsFIRST welcomed me with open arms and has supported me in this new adventure. As a family, everyone supports one another both professionally and personally, creating a working environment that is happy and safe. Therapists strive to make parents, children and families feel “at home” too. Our “open door” policy means that all topics are addressed and faced as a team. This includes our multidisciplinary approach in helping each child (and therapist) to achieve their unique potential. I am proud to be part of the kidsFIRST family.”
