HEAR FROM OUR COMMUNITY

MEEC has been the most rewarding place to send all three of our children...They have all continued to love learning as they move on through the Primary and Secondary years.

It is wonderful to watch them grow and develop as independent learners and see their enthusiasm to attend school

Our two sons have been so privileged to complete Early Learners and Cycle One at MEEC. The centre provided them with a wonderful nurturing start to their journey. The things they have learnt astounded us and provided them with a wonderful grounding for life and future education.

Both my daughters attended MEEC. As a Montessori educator myself, I have always felt confident that they received a genuine Montessori experience wholeheartedly based on Montessori principles and values. 

More importantly, both my girls loved their school and looked forward to attending every day.
