Emirates British Nursery (EBN) has established a Health and Safety committee, together with the EBN Senior Management and Crisis team, to plan the reopening of the nurseries on 4th October 2020 (subject to MOE approval). The safety and wellbeing of each and every member of our EBN community remains our top priority. This includes ensuring our children are able to play, have fun and learn in a protected environment and we will continue to work closely alongside the Ministry of Education in Dubai according to our Nursery Readiness Plan.
How do we plan to
We plan to be open with children attending the nursery as per their registered timings. As part of our health and safety measure, we have implemented a staggered drop off and collection times. By doing this, we hope to further support our families as the children settle into the nursery after the summer and develop valuable key relationships. In addition, this will also allow everyone to adapt and adhere to the new protocols and systems in place to maintain set health and safety standards.
What will the children’s day look like?
Children will join their class (bubbles) which means that they will have areas of the nursery allocated to their class only. This will enable all the children to continue to have access to a wide range of resources to participate in fun activities that will support their learning and development through playing and exploring, being active and through creative and critical thinking. Furthermore, all the children will have the opportunity to play outside daily. Last but no means least, regular handwashing will be part of the children’s daily routines at EBN!
What safety measures do you have in place?
Our Health and Safety committee together with the EBN Senior Management and Crisis team, will continue to work closely alongside the Ministry of Education, implementing our approved reopening plans. These procedures ensure all necessary steps will be taken to safely welcome you and your children back to the nursery while maintaining the highest levels of health and safety whilst your children are in our care. To make this successfully happen and be effectively maintained, we need your cooperation, understanding, ongoing support and flexibility. Parents will receive further information prior to opening. Please contact us for any concerns you may have.
