My daughter started school here this year for the first time. She loves it! And we love it. Great teachers, great families. She will stay for the next two years and I will put my son there when he is old enough. I wouldn't think of putting them any other place!
All 3 of my children attended MECE and I recommend it to everyone I meet! Children learn through play, unlike at many schools where 3-year-olds are being handed workbooks and pencils. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, the teachers are there because they love it, and the children are well prepared for "big" school when they leave. My daughter went to Addison Mizner Elementary's gifted program after leaving MECE, as did more than half of her pre-K classmates. My sons went to private school after MECE, and have continued to excel academically. We are forever grateful to Miss Linda and her team!
I wish MECE went beyond Kindergarten. I can't say enough about how wonderful this school is. Two of our three children attend this loving, caring environment. The grounds are safe and the students are kind to each other. Our children learn without the typical Boca overdrive on how their 4 year old must read chapter books and solve math problems. At MECE, they teach the children the right way, through encouragement and kindness. Our children don't come home stressed and angry like they did in other area schools. I wish we would have put our first child in MECE Kindergarten but instead opted for Morikami, what a mistake. Great if you enjoy spending your day in car lines for a sub par education and environment. Let your children be children, send them to MECE, you will not be disappointed.
What an amazing school!! As a 1st time mom I was very worried about sending my little one to any pre-school. After much research, I choose MECE.. I can not say enough about the teachers and the program itself.. Someone else on here mentioned it reminding them of an old-fashioned pre-school and that was a great comparison, that is just what I feel. Ms. Linda the director is extremely organized and though she comes off very stern and sometimes intimidating, it is she that keeps this school operating the way it is. The teachers that I have had are so loving.. I never felt nervous dropping my child off.. I actually felt proud that I was leaving him in such great hands to learn something new that I may have been unable to teach him that day... Wait List when I enrolled 1 yr in advance.
