Montessori was appointed by Dubai Women Establishment (DWE) as a
consultant for the National Child Care Project.
The Project aimed to improve the quality of early care settings in the
United Arab Emirates and promote the establishment of child care
centres in the workplace.
DWE was supported in this initiative by the Executive Council of the
Government of Dubai, to achieve two of the main objectives of the UAE
Federal Strategy, unveiled by H.E. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al
Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai:
* To improve the quality and standards of
education, at all levels in
the public and private sector, to meet society’s expectations.
* To encourage women's contribution to development
through the creation
of a positive work environment that supports working mothers through
the availability of childcare in the workplace, to have their children
close by in a safe and nurturing environment.
Gulf Montessori's consultancy services included the preparation of the National
Child Care Standards, and the provision of technical and
academic support for Government entities wanting to set-up child care
centres in their workplaces.
National Child Care Standards define the minimum acceptable
qualitative and quantitative requirements for the setting and the
