Sharjah Children was established in the Emirate of Sharjah in 1985 under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council, the Ruler of Sharjah. Since its establishment, and under the close supervision of His Highness's wife, Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, Sharjah Children's objectives have focused on providing children aged six to twelve with an opportunity to develop their talents, and practice their hobbies in a variety of fields, thus contributing to the development of the children's character. This is done through making available to our nation's children a selection of activities that are conducted within a stimulating environment.
From its modest beginnings of a handful of centers, Sharjah Children now boasts fourteen children's centers spread across the Emirate of Sharjah offering state-of-the-art facilities and activities.
We envisage Sharjah Children as a leading entity that contributes to the overall development of children, within an approach that is in line with the highest international practices and standards and that aligns with the UAE's social and cultural values.
To prepare exceptionally creative future generations, united in their sense of responsibility, armed with knowledge and an understanding of the value of a strong national identity and good citizenship, and who possess diversified and flexible skill-sets that will help them adapt to global changes, this under the supervision of qualified cadres and within a competitive and sustainable environment aimed at top achievement of their potential.
