Al-Hajri told Al-Seyassah daily the licenses of 89 nurseries of the 544 have been renewed and that the ministry is coordinating efforts with the competent authorities to form an integrated inspection team to inspect all private nurseries, in addition to coordinating with the Public Authority for the Disabled to inspect the nurseries for children of this category.
