Fun & Play Nursery (FPN, F&P) in Dubai accepts babies and children from birth to 6 years of age (which must be one of the few places in Dubai to accept children so young)? Or it only accepts 2-6 years old or 2-5 year old children (conflicting information seen, not confirmed which is correct but most recent value seems to be 2-5 yr olds although website still says birth to 6 yrs).
Opening hours are 0800-2000 (8am-8pm), children do not have to stay the whole day, timings are flexible in 3 hour slots. Nursery has been set up as more of a childcare / day care center? Sounds like a less structured babysitting environment than a conventional nursery where regular attendance is expected.
Nursery open 6 days per week - Saturday as well as the normal Sunday - Thursday?
Session times are 0800-1100, 1100-1400, 1400-1700, 1700-2000.
Fees are AED 150 per 3 hour session? Phone to book ahead.
Fun & Play website says free complimentary session for new students, parents, tots.
No registration or admission fees?
Facilities include arts & craft, children's gym, computers and IT, library.
Additional contact number on Fun & Play website is mobile +971-50-8799160.
