MEAM UAE Business Awards 2018

56 MEA MARKETS / 2018 UAE Business Awards , Early Years Education Experts 2018 Aligning with the country’s vision of building a robust knowledge and innovation driven economy, Masterminds Education has received the UAE Business Excellence Award for its expertise in early years education for the second consecutive year. We profile the firm to explore how it came to achieve such incredible success. UA180001 Since its inception in 2015, Masterminds Nursery & Kindergarten has offered unique enrichment programs that integrate a mother’s traditional wisdom with 60 years of leading-edge research in child development to create intellectual, physical and social excellence, in children age eighteen months to six years. The establishment is the only one of its kind in the Middle East region to offer its pioneering learning methodology that both nurtures and unveils the genius within every child. The Masterminds programs include English, French, and Arabic language immersion, learning to play the violin, gymnastics and swimming, as well as enrichment programs that will ensure all children can read fluently, do maths and have exceptional knowledge, physical and social awareness, by the age of six. These have been proven to be the building blocks of a strong, well-rounded childhood and beyond, into a successful adult life. Tania Siddiqi, Director of Masterminds Education, discusses how the firm has achieved this and more over recent years. “Masterminds Education offers quality education with well- trained faculty members, state- of-the-art facilities and learning methods that are personalized to the needs of every student. While our students are trained with exciting and all-encompassing educational activities, we have had instances where parents who have moved out of Dubai have returned back to the emirate just to continue schooling with us. This is clear proof of the institution’s popularity among a wide range of local, regional and international learners.” Ultimately, education is a fundamental element for the development of a nation and the best investment in its youth. For that reason, the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda emphasizes the development of a first-rate education system, which will require a complete transformation of the current education system and teaching methods. With these reforms in mind, the education reforms as adapted by Masterminds Education are certainly essential to equip the nation’s children with a skill set that will help them jump-start their careers and be competitive. In this regard, education providers and other stakeholders have an important role to play to ensure the young are geared up for the real world in the 21st century, and Masterminds Education will be seeking to continue to lead the change and support even more children as it looks towards a bright future.
