Dear Emerald City Nursery Friends, Contractors, Suppliers and Providers,

Notice For All Of Emerald City Nursery Closing on Thursday 14th December 2017

It is with the saddest regret we inform you that due to a change of Nursery Government rules which is – children under the age of six years must be on the ground level only.  These new regulations became known to us only recently at the time of the renewal of our Nursery License.

As it is not possible for the Nursery to continue without utilizing the first level, we have no choice but to cease Nursery operations as from Thursday 14th December 2017.
If convenient for Emerald City Nursery parent’s, we have spaces for their children to attend our other Nurseries which are also open throughout the three-week Winter Break – Sunday 17th December until Thursday 4th January 2017 

Yellow Brick Road Nursery, Al Garhoud
Crystal Valley Nursery, Al Mizher
Indigo Valley Nursery, Al Twar2.

If you would like your child or baby to attend either of our three Nurseries, then we would make all necessary arrangements for a seamless transfer.  Each of our other three Beautiful Minds Nurseries follow the same philosophy, teaching and learning styles as parents and all others are accustomed to at Emerald City Nursery.

We thank you in advance for your understanding of this situation and with full respect for the United Arab Emirates Governing Rules and Regulations, we continue to follow all that is required of us.
We are offering staff positions within our other Nurseries and currently transferring twenty staff to the three Beautiful Minds Nurseries.  We are supporting each of our Nursery team members in the most positive way possible.

Outside providers and all other concerned persons, for any enquiry, please directly contact me via email, thank you.

For each of our beautiful Emerald City Nursery babies and children, we wish you all the very best wishes that life can possibly bring.  From our hearts we thank you for your joy and inspirational wisdom, you are our teachers, we are just here to do what is right for you and to gently guide you towards a wonderful life, thank you and we love you.
For all our past Emerald City Nursery babies and children, we extend a grateful and loving thank you for spending your early years with us, we loved caring for you and we wish you a continued happy and joyful life.

Kind regards
Bernadette King-Turner
Managing Director

Emerald City Nursery Farewell to All

Emerald City Nursery Farewell to All

Health and Safety is our top priority for the safe and secure daily care of the children, for this reason we have:

      Security staff stationed at our Nursery gates.

Security cameras strategically positioned throughout the interior and exterior of the Nursery.

Parents must sign our daily register in the morning when bringing their children in to the Nursery and also sign out when collecting their children from the Nursery.

Our strict rules for the collection of the children from the Nursery are clearly mentioned in the Nursery Parent Handbook.

Once each Nursery Term week the Nursery Paediatric Doctor visits the Nursery and checks the children.

If parents have any questions or concerns regarding their children’s health they are most welcome to speak with our Nursery Paediatrician.

All members of staff have first aid training and are kept up to date with Health and Safety policies and procedures.

Regular Fire Drills and Nursery Management team has an Emergency Preparedness Plan in place

For more information please see our “Nursery Family Book of Great Information”.

We request all parents to read and fully understand the Nursery Health & Safety rules and regulations of which are fully listed and explained in the ‘Nursery Family Book of Great Information’.

We remind parents and care-givers to install appropriate car seats and car restraints for your children, to read and adhere to the Nursery car park rules.

Greet Your Child With A Smile – Not A Mobile!!
Just a wee message from Ms Bernadette King-Turner –
a little reminder for us all – Talking with your child is a cool thing to do… ?

Parents – are the Adults – Children are the young people relying upon the grownups in their lives to keep them safe!

Brigadier Al Mazroui stressed that all children under ten should be put in a child seat and restrained by the seatbelt when being seated in the rear of the vehicle.

This must be followed till the child becomes as tall as 145cm. At the same time, seating children under the age of 10 in the front seat of a vehicle will lead to a fine of Dh400 and four black points against the driver.

Other precautions parents must take to ensure their child’s safety are monitoring children’s behaviour inside the vehicle and locking all doors and windows so that children cannot be tempted to put their head or hands outside when the vehicle is moving.

He also warned parents against smoking in the car when children are present. This violation carries a fine of Dh500, which goes up to Dh10,000 if they are caught repeating the violation.
Parents show their love for their children not by saying how much they love them but by taking every step to protect them at all times.

Children under the age of 10 are not allowed to ride in the front seat of a vehicle. Always use proper restraining devices for your child (child seats, booster cushions).
Never allow kids to move about freely inside the car.
Do not allow your child to sit on the lap of any passengers or the driver.
