Nursery centre confusion

Nursery children

DAY care centres have come under scrutiny in Almeria for the first time. Privately run day nurseries are suspected of operating without proper authorisation, and are being checked by qualified government technicians to see if they comply with strict laws governing these businesses.

It was only late last year that the government in Almeria realised it did not have any legislation on the statue books for the control of privately run day care centres.  Consequently the city Service Planning and Education Department drafted emergency legislation after conducting an inspection survey, and drafted a list of measures it deemed appropriate.

Department spokeswoman said: “We have not yet completed our inspections at a number of centres and cannot say what the standards should be. There might be playgrounds that also function as nurseries but have no educational characteristics, and are therefore immune from the law.”
