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.
Our Nursery parents regularly compliment us on the cosy and homely atmosphere within Emerald City Nursery. This magical setting is designed and decorated so that your child will feel immediately welcome and at ease, and ready to begin a journey of creativity and wonder.
We have a flair for imagination when creating learning environments in the classrooms, indoor play areas and outdoors. We maximise each space carefully taking into consideration the learning and development of your unique child.
We steer away from ‘plastic fantastic,’ pop up, push button toys, instead we source ‘open-ended’ play materials inspired by nature that encourage thought and problem-solving.
Here are just a few of our facilities that make us special –
Indoor Learning Facilities
Spacious and well-equipped age-appropriate classrooms separated into ‘areas of provision’ each with its own focus on learning and development.
Our classrooms are equipped with Promethean Interactive Learning Boards and computers which are connected to wireless internet.
Art rooms attached to each classroom that inspire creativity and freedom to imagine.
Bathrooms attached to each classroom complete with child-sized toilets and wash basins, perfect for toilet training and independence.
Designated Library and cosy Majlis seating area.
Dedicated baby room with dining room, sleeping room and separate ‘outdoor space’ complete with its own little hill for exploring physical development.
Meal times are shared in our Victorian ‘boutique’ style Dining Room with an emphasis on ‘respectful care’ and encouraging independence, complete with lemongrass scented flannels.
Outdoor Learning Facilities
Spacious and well equipped outdoor play areas, with soft play, bike track, climbing frames, sand pit, construction area and even a giant teepee.
Nursery ‘homegrown’ vegetable gardens that produce the tastiest organic produce.
Health and Safety Facilities
24 Hours CCTV – Our cameras are strategically placed throughout the Nursery as our children’s safety is of paramount importance.
Our external double gate system has latches at ‘adult level’ only. We also have our own personal security staff guarding the Nursery entrance.
Throughout the Nursery, we have Plasma cluster air purifiers to remove all airborne viruses and any other airborne hazards from the building.

We are also very proud of our zero waste scheme. Our recycling centre and ‘Bokashi’ compost system allow us to keep our Nursery food and rubbish waste to a minimum.
