Welcome Message

Thank you for your interest in MEES. Please take a moment to learn about our school as I think MEES offers quality education in tune with the world we are living now, in which every child will strive.

It is the children who give me the reward for my hard work every single day; when the children are smiling, comfortable, making progress, overcoming barriers and building confidence. When I see them grow up and each one of them step by step develops into a unique wonderful personality, I am rewarded. I feel so much pride after one year, when they grow out of a stage in their lives and are looking forward to the next challenge of their young educational careers.

This is what MEES is about. A school which is child centered, safe and always striving to give the best education for young children. A school where every child is cared for and treated with compassion. This is what every child deserves!

MEES' Core Beliefs

MEES is child-centered. When a child is entrusted to take ownership over his/her own learning, the child is more invested and what is learned has real meaning to the child. We believe that when a child chooses an activity him/herself, that child more likely learns faster, as it comes from his or her own initiative.

With the focus on independence, creativity, problem solving, communication, collaboration and confidence-building, we want the children to enjoy coming to a fun and comfortable environment. By planting the seed for a love of learning, we hope that your child will stay curious and able to face new challenges.

Through peer interaction, developing social skills is an important part of a young child’s life. At MEES we think that every child is different. Therefore we avoid competition between children. We like to teach the children to respect the differences in each other and praise what is done well. This is how we build confidence at an early stage in a young child. A confident child will excel in what he/she is good at, and will do better in what is more challenging.

We believe that a young child should enjoy going to school, free from the pressure to perform or the fear of failure, and not in competition with peers. Confidence and the ability to challenge difficult situations are far more important than test results.

The acquisition of knowledge is far more effective when driven by interest rather than forced onto a child. A young child is never wrong, but rather, exploring the possibilities.

Luca Deli Kitchen

We are happy to have Lucadeli catering to MEES. The food is 100% organic, caters to children with food restrictions and most of all tastes amazing!

It is included in the tuition as we believe it is important for children to learn about international tastes at a young age.

MEES Bus Service
