The nursery will have eventual capacity for 195 children. Initially, a maximum of 97 children will be enrolled, in line with social distancing requirements currently mandated by the Ministry of Education.
Monica Valrani, CEO of Ladybird Nurseries in Dubai, said the new nursery reinforced the group's "commitment and belief in the value of an early years education". Ladybird has been offering pre-school education to UAE parents since 1996.
"I would like to personally thank the Ministry of Education and the Knowledge Fund for helping build the futures of children across the city of Dubai". Monica Valrani, CEO of Ladybird Nurseries in Dubai
