Ministry of Social Affairs Training Plan in the Field of Early Childhood

The Ministry of Social affairs, (MOSA) adopted a Training Plan in the Field of Early Childhood aiming to raise the standards of early childhood care in the United Arab Emirates. The plan requires all the staff of nurseries operating in the UAE to acquire between 18 and 30 hours of professional development training annually, depending on their position in the Nursery.

Gulf Montessori Institute is one of the training providers approved by the Ministry to deliver the required training. The Institute is offering a structured course, divided into 2-3 hours modules covering all the topics required by the Ministry’s plan. Each nursery or individual staff can select the topic modules most suited for their needs, and the module hours will be accumulated towards certification of the required 18-30 hours of training**.

The training is delivered in English or Arabic language at the Institute, over two afternoons per week and/or Saturday morning sessions.
The training can also be tailor- made according to the needs and requirements of individual nurseries or schools.

The Training fee is AED 100 per hour per candidate, with 20% discount for groups over five. Please inquire about the fee for special customized training at the nursery for all its staff.
