Hosted by SchoolsCompared.com, the Aga Khan Early Learning Centre (AKELC) was announced the winner of the Best Nursery UAE 2019 award. Head of Nursery, Kelli Allen, and HR and Operations Manager, Irnesa Hodzic, received the award on stage and were asked to share their thoughts. Both stated that the success of the award was a combination of staff, volunteers, parents and children working together to achieve a high-quality programme.
While the Top School Awards clearly celebrated contributions to UAE Education, the biggest success of the event according to Jonathan Westley, editor of SchoolsCompared.com, was simply to bring the industry as a whole together, and to allow its members to make new friendships and cement existing ones. “We believe this is the first time in UAE history that schools have been brought together, on such a scale, for an event such as this,” he added.
On January 22, 2019, Kelli Allen was notified that AKELC had been shortlisted in the SchoolsCompared.com Education Awards 2019. “This was a great surprise as the Nursery hadn’t applied for the award,” says Allen.
