Home Nurseries 'Unqualified, Unlicensed' Says Jordan Official

Home nurseries are “unqualified and unlicensed” to receive children in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, said Director of the Family Protection Department at the Ministry of Social Development Mahmoud Jbour.

Jbour stated that since nurseries are still allowed by the ministry to receive children, home nurseries are not included in that decision as they are not registered with the ministry and therefore the Family Protection Department has no control over them.

Even though nurseries are operating, there are set criteria for accepting children such as proof of the mother’s work and the child’s health status, the ministry said in a statement on Monday.
