When we envisaged Minimee we didn’t have a clear vision of what we wanted to accomplish initially. However, what we did know for sure was what we didn’t want, namely a cold clinical setting and institutionalised learning.
We didn’t want just a day-care but rather a community that was an extension of the children’s homes and families and, for some, a home away from home. We wanted to provide a warm and inviting environment where children are respected and nurtured with open spaces, wooden floors and natural surroundings.... beautiful, but still functional.
We wanted a childcare programme that brought us back the basics that we sought for our own children. Cultural experiences such as music, arts and language combined with a strong community involvement offered positive learning experiences.
Hence, our vision evolved and we have finally carried this dream through to fruition. Our mission is to continue providing an enhanced quality educational and childcare programme to ensure your children feel secure and happy from the very beginning.
