Officials behind Dubai's Ladybird Nursery announced completion of all construction works at the upcoming facility. 

Ladybird Early Learning Centre, situated in Jumeirah Village Circle, has been built in line with LEED standards.

The building aims to be the region's first early learning facility to achieve LEED Gold certification. 

Designs for the nursery include tools and techniques to improve sustainability, Monica Valrani, CEO of Ladybird Nurseries in Dubai, explained. 

Researches show that long-term respiratory illnesses may be caused as a result of sick buildings, she added. 

In a bid to improve the building's sustainability factor, its AC system will automatically switch off upon opening its windows.

Drain water from the AC system will be recycled and reused for irrigation. 

Each of the building's 15 classrooms incorporate energy-efficient fan and lighting systems, according to WAM.
