25 August 2008 review
  • Also, or more properly called the Giggles English Nursery? Same as the Al Basma Nursery in Abu Dhabi? Founding date not given.
  • PO Box 44094 is the same as for the Al Ain Medical Clinic (in Abu Dhabi, tel +971-2-6333924)?
  • Owner or director or both is Maria Hose (Maria Jose)?
  • Children aged 18 months to 4 years old accepted.
  • Mixed comments from parents. Not as consistently popular as some of the other nursery or pre-school choices in Abu Dhabi.
