Dubai nursery enjoys success of e Quality Counts award 

Blossom Downtown nursery in Dubai passed the NDNA e-Quality Counts accreditation in October 2015 and were presented with their well-earned award by our own Purnima Tanuku in December.

Tamara Stubbs, Blossom Downtown's Centre Director, tells us how taking part in the scheme benefited her and her team:

"I thoroughly enjoyed completing the e-Quality Counts NDNA accreditation.  I was able to reflect on current practice alongside my team and evaluate the areas we are strong in and the areas that needed some improvement.

Over the period of the 14 months it took to complete, we used this award to its fullest and involved all practitioners within our setting as well as some from our other sites.  This allowed us to improve our standards of care and education through out our entire organization and not just for Blossom Downtown.

I would highly recommend any nursery considering taking part in this award. It is a highly detailed and lengthy system, but one worth while putting the time in for.  I am proud to say we were a part of creating change and improving practice and the experiences of our children!  Great work NDNA for putting together such a useful tool - Believe Achieve Become!
