Meanwhile, 29 nurseries and kindergartens in Sharjah are all set for reopening on October 4, with strict Covid-19 precautionary measures in place, a top education official has said. After meeting safety requirements – including the mandatory screening for all staff members – the nurseries have obtained their permission to operate from the Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA), an official from the Sharjah Education Council said. Teams from the SPEA, the Early Childhood Development Department and the Ministry of Education all worked together in inspecting and evaluating the emirate’s nurseries, he added. They checked every nook and cranny, reviewed sterilisation practices, and looked into the protocols laid out for staff. Inspections and monitoring will continue to ensure nurseries’ compliance with all measures throughout their operations.
