  Child abuse - signs and what to look for

Abuse can come in many different forms and sometimes even we as parents can be doing something damaging without realising it. This is especially true when a child is left in the care of a nanny or housemaid, and we may not recognise signs happening under our noses! The article link below can help you to undertand what it is all about, what are some signs to look for and what we can do about it. 

If you suspect someone in your family, or just someone that you know, may be abusing a child it is your duty to report it for the child's sake.

Abuse hotlines and contact details for Abu Dhabi are:

  Agencies for extra help

Once our children start to develop we all wonder if they are on the right path, are they meeting the right milestones and do they need any extra help. If you have any concerns about your child's development or progression please request a meeting with the teacher through reception so that we can help guide and assist you. If there needs to be any extra help, or just to set your mind at rest, we are always available to listen and offer advice.
