How to Change Request to Nursery Current Situation in Qatar

Companies are allowed to submit a request in order to change or amend their current nursery status in Qatar. With the online service, the modification can be in terms of the construction or the expansion of a nursery building. The company may simply submit the application to the Family Affairs Department in the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor, and Social Affairs (MADLSA).

To request the application for amendment, simply download the application form and fill it out with the required information on the service information page in the “Family Affairs Department” menu. You can find this on the “E-Services & E-Forms” page. Don’t forget to attach a copy of the new building lease contract. This is the document as provided by the lease contract documentation office as issued by the Ministry of Municipality and Environment. If you will be requesting an approval in order to build a structure adjacent to the nursery, you may also submit a copy of the title deed as documented by the real estate office of the Ministry of Justice.

When all of the information is complete and accurate, you may submit the application along with all of the necessary attachments via email using this address: You may also submit to the Family Affairs Department Service Location in Al Huda Tower.

Keep in mind that if you will be changing the status of the nursery before you obtain the approval of the Family Affairs Department, this will constitute a legal offence pursuant to provisions of Law No. (1) of 2014 regulating the activities of nurseries.

According to the provisions, a nursery or nursery school is defined as “any place designated for the care of children until four (4) years of age, including nurseries attached or annexed to a government or private school, in accordance with the conditions and controls established by a decision issued by the Minister in this respect.” As such, you need to be guided accordingly to the laws that surround it.

Why is this important, and why are there so many rules that govern nurseries? This is because these establishments are responsible for providing integrated care and services for all enrolled children. This is crucial because nurseries must offer the appropriate conditions for the development of these young minds, which also includes their skills and talents in different fields.

To top it all off, there must also be competent practices when it comes to the sound psychological atmosphere for the children. This further extends to the mental state of the child, as well as to the development of the feelings of security and trust, kindness, and compassion. This kind of upbringing is crucial to the overall shaping of the child to nurture him or her into an upstanding citizen for generations to come. This is why rules governing nurseries must be duly adhered to ensure a brighter future for the State of Qatar.
