Welcome to MEEC!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
I have been involved in Montessori education since 1990 when I completed a Montessori Diploma. I could think of no other more worthwhile, inspiring job than being involved in Montessori and in the education of children. I first began teaching at MEEC in 1998, began the Montessori stream at Mitcham Primary School in 2004 and became the principal at Donvale in 2008. I am fully committed to Montessori and continue to guarantee that MEEC follows and stays true to the Montessori philosophy.
It is such a pleasure to come to school observing all the children arriving with joy on their face and then see them in their rooms actively participating in purposeful activities that they have chosen themselves.
I also feel privileged to work with such wonderful staff many of whom have been at MEEC for more than 10 years. I admire their work ethic, the commitment they have to Montessori and to meeting the needs of their students to ensure that their first years of education give them a lifelong love of learning.
Our centre strives for excellence in all areas and we trust and support our parents who have made the important decision to send their child/children to us. It is my promise to them that their child/children will be educated in a peaceful, caring, non-competitive environment free to follow their own desires and at the same time respecting their peers, their teachers and the environment.
