British Orchard Nursery, which claims to be the UAE’s largest, inaugurated its first facility at Dubai Municipality premises on Baniyas Road, Deira.
This is in line with nursery’s corporate philosophy to reach out and provide quality preschool education and day care services to children of working mothers by taking such facilities to their doorstep. British Orchard Nursery has pioneered the concept of corporate franchising by forming partnerships with many Government institutions in UAE which include RTA, DEWA, Dubai Women’s College and now Dubai Municipality.
The concept allows British Orchard to run nurseries for the staff of the Government Departments which offers the flexibility to the mothers to have their children in the trusted care within the same premises; proximity to their little ones helps them concentrate on their work while increasing the productivity.
Chief Guest of the ceremony, Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality and Vandana Gandhi - Founder and CEO of British Orchard Nursery, cut the commemorative ribbon in the presence of senior officials from Dubai Municipality and the nursery school.
Ms. Vandana Gandhi, Founder and CEO of British Orchard Nursery, said: “It’s our endeavour to serve the society and create confident learners while ensuring young ones develop appropriate social and imaginative skills, preparing them for a smooth transition to the big school. It’s very assuring for both child and the mother to be in close proximity in the early years and our concept aims to serve the need and fill that gap. We are in discussions with various private and public sector firms to come onboard and have nursery and day-care facilities within their premises. It will surely be a great initiative and put mothers at ease. I am thankful to Dubai Municipality for acknowledging the necessity and giving us the opportunity to contribute to the Emirati working women community”.
With a total of 10 branches across the UAE in Bur Dubai, Jumeirah, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, RTA, DEWA, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Dubai Women’s College, Dubai Media City and now in Dubai Municipality, British Orchard brings more than 20 years of collective experience in professional childcare and early childhood education in the UAE.
