Closing of 4 nurseries because of child ill-treatment


The Health Ministry Information Office announced yesterday that after receiving complaints on the ministry’s hotline (1214), against a number of child daycare centers, inspection teams from the Mother and Child Department conducted field visits to verify these complaints. The office added in its statement that based on the results of the field visits, the health minister Ghassan Hasbani issued four circulars, requiring the suspension of the license and temporary shutdown of a nursery in Zuq Mkhayel after a child broke his leg as a result of an accident; freezing the licenses and closing for one month of two kindergartens in Shiyah and Tripoli because of repeated abuses of children, including biting, and freezing the license of a nursery in Jal el Dib for verbally abusing a child. The office stressed that the suspension should be considered as the last warning before final closure if violations continue. (An Nahar, September 6, 2018)
