Meet our Nurses Joanne & Maria

The nursery has a fully equipped First Aid Room with all the necessary equipment and basic first aid medications. We have 2 qualified nurses who are available to administer any necessary first aid treatment as well as offer advice and health education when needed. All first aid cases receive immediate attention and in the event of an emergency an ambulance will be called.

Communication between Home and School is of vital importance in nurturing the health and welfare of our Children. Feel free to visit the clinic at any time to discuss any concerns you may have about your child.

All children’s height and weight will be tracked and recorded every term and a report will be sent to the parents.

We have a visiting doctor, once per month who carries out yearly medical examinations on all children with parental consent.

DHA Registered Nurse

Hi! My name is Nurse Joanne

I am from a small village in the north east of England called Great Broughton. I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1989 from a busy teaching hospital in London, I then went on to qualify as Midwife, Neonatal  Nurse and a Chiropodist!!

I have lived and worked in Abdu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia for many years, moving to Dubai in 2010 with my husband and daughter, Megan. I worked in a British Curriculum school for 6 years before joining the wonderful team at Children’s Oasis Nursery in August 2016.

I love working in the nursery it is a pleasure to come to work every day and be around the happy smiling staff and children. Every day is fun filled and satisfying with lots of laughs and cuddles. Looking after the little ones when they are sick and teaching them how to stay healthy and make good choices, knowing I am teaching lifelong healthy habits is all the job satisfaction I need.

Hi! My name is Nurse Maria

I am from a place called Cotabato City in the Philippines. I graduated from Notre Dame University with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I have worked as a staff nurse and as an educator for 5 years at Cotabato Puericulture Hospital Foundation Inc.

Throughout my nursing career I have worked with the very young to the very old, but working with children have fulfilled my passion as a nurse.

In April 2015, I decided to make the big move to Dubai. I have been working in the nursery since July 2015 and I am very happy to be a part of the Children’s Oasis Team.

My experience here has been amazing. The children teach me that actions truly do speak louder than words. Children’s giggle and hugs are my everyday reward that made me realize how lucky I am to be part of their growth and learning. Each day is an opportunity for me to explore and understand their development, striving to give my best to make sure the Oasis family are healthy and safe.  Working with children has made me a better version of myself.



We will always have extremely fond and treasured memories of our girls time at Children’s Oasis. The teachers are so creative and fun, always thinking of new ways to engage the children and the thoughtful and varied outdoor areas were always a favourite of theirs. We loved the intimate, friendly feel and all the little extras which makes it feel that you are part of a community. Thanks for everything, we really couldn’t have asked for a better start and we will miss you all.

From Paul and Katy Rogers (Dad & Mum)

What I love about Children's Oasis is how well looked after my children are and how comfortable they feel. They know the names of most of the staff and will always say 'hi' and often stop for a chat. It's a calm and nurturing environment.

From Zoi (Mum)

We love children’s Oasis Nursery. It has been a part of our lives for over 8 years with both our girls going there. The staff are all amazing and really care for the children.

Sally (Mum)

Que alegría haberlos encontrado! Estamos muy agradecidos de comenzar los años escoltarse de nuestra hija con su apoyo! Desde las maestras, hasta la directora y el ambiente de la escuela tuvimos una experiencia fenomenal y estamos entusiasmados de volver en Septiembre! Muchas gracias Children's Oasis!!!

From Adriana (Mum)

Both my boys were at Children Oasis from the time they were 2 and until they were 4 years old; first attending the Spanish Programme and then, FS1. Both classes were great! The teachers are incredibly professional and caring. The communication with the parents is excellent and reports are detailed. They make learning fun and engaging for the kids who learn through hands-on activities and play. The facilities are beautiful with lots of stimulating and educational books and toys.  I couldn't ask for more during those early years for my children!

From Maria (Mum)
