At the inauguration ceremony, the late Queen was accompanied by her daughters, Princess Haya and Abir Muhaisen, Empress Farah Pahlavi, and King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece.

With funding from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (Princess Haya’ husband) the Center was re-launched and expanded in 2014. It has feature playgrounds, a library, a culinary center, arts and crafts rooms, dance, drama, and music studios, and a state-of-the-art planetarium and theatre space for children.
