Nurseries in Umm Al Quwain (UAQ) general comments
- Don't get Umm Al Quwain (the emirate) mixed up with Umm Suqeim or Umm Al Sheif suburbs in Dubai - some newcomers to the UAE do. They are very different places. For a start, UAQ has very few nurseries, Umm Suqiem and Um Al Sheif have many. If you want a choice of good nurseries (and expensive) for your brat or brats, live those areas in Dubai.
- There is a limited range of nurseries and daycare centers in Umm Al Quwain, none of which would rate very highly compared to the best ones in Abu Dhabi or Dubai. And all are reluctant to provide useful information such as fees, date established, children's nationalities, nursery curriculum.
- We'd advise to search the nursery list thoroughly (there's not many so it won't take long) for any good ones that are helpful with information. Otherwise try Ajman, a neighboring emirate to UAQ, but also has very few, if any, decent nurseries. Or Ras Al Khaimah - further away from UAQ town than Ajman but does have a couple of reasonably nurseries. The best nurseries are in Dubai and Abu Dhabi but it is unrealistic to commute every day for those nurseries.
- If you live in UAQ or are going to, then your childcare choices for young kids and babies are
- move to Dubai or Abu Dhabi, and pay much more in rent and nursery fees.
- commute your kids to Ras Al Khaimah or Ajman (allow 30-45 mins drive each way). Bus is not an option unless nurseries in RAK or Ajman provide UAQ pickup and drop off (none do that we know of - please tell us if you hear different). Taxi not recommended for young children on their own.
- stick with the limited nursery options available in UAQ.
- employ nanny or childcare help at home.
- look after your kids yourself until they can go to school - there are schools which will take them off your hands for kindergarten starting at age 3-4 years old.
