It has been 5 weeks since my son was born in Ruwais hospital. I have made several inquiries about nurseries considering that my wife was still under contract with a Ruwais Mall company and she would need to continue working. The following article will present my results of nurseries searches.
Al Dana is the most advertised nursery in Ruwais. You can find it at A 281. If you are traveling from Abu Dhabi Market to Emirates General Market you can see the banner on your right side, after you have passed the first roundabout. To reach the parking lot, where this first picture was taken, you just have to reach the next intersection and make 3 rights.
Before contacting the nursery at : 050-9046042 or 050-6913895 about more details.
Kindly note that age range is from 1 month to 4 years old. You will bring your own food for the baby (no oranges or eggs). Schedule is from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm (pickup untill 4pm). There is no ADNOC employee discount. There is a School nurse and an assistant on the premises. Required documents for registration :
- A copy of the child’s passport [including residence visa page]
- A copy of the guardian’s passport [including residence visa page]
- A copy of the authenticated birth certificate.
- A copy of the vaccination card.
- 6 photographs
Since this is a private nursery you will have certain facilities and trained personnel for which you will pay for. Here is the fees list taken from their brochure.
Just to point out… After the main Ruwais gate entrance there is a Nursery indicator, but that one is for plants cultivation area. Apparently a plants growing facility is also called “nursery”. I have been referred to that one several times when asking for “Ruwais Nurseries”. You can imagine the comedy in that situation if you were me discovering that place.
I am obviously talking about small children nurseries. A place where a newborn, a baby, or a kid (below 4 years old) can be taken care of while you go to your daily job.
Since my colleagues could not provide me with even more answers to my question i have went to the Recreation Center and the Ruwais Security Office. While asking about (baby) nurseries i could not get another alternative for Al Dana. I was promised a follow up (from the Security Office) for my inquiry but i have not received any calls or emails about this matter until this day. In Sha Allah i will get a call until i enroll my boy into college.
My next source of information is a Facebook group called “Ruwais Ladies”. I have asked my wife to forward my question to the ladies and provide me with their answers. I will share their replies to you to confirm the last result of my search. For privacy reasons i have blurred out their names.
So… now you have all the information that i could find regarding Ruwais Nurseries. The title should be Ruwais Nursery, but i am still hoping that this situation will improve in time.
If you have additional news please share with us. If you know a family looking for a nursery please share this with them.
