A Message from Our Principal:
Star Mirdif’s unique selling point is that we are a family. We live in the centre of mirdif and our heart is open to absolutely everybody that comes through our front door. We are approachable, we have a nurturing atmosphere whereby children can take risks and be very safe in the environment they’re in to do so. In doing this, they expand their mindset and learn through their mistakes which is something that is really important when learning. Our children are absolutely amazing (we would say that, but they are!), the staff are a dedicated, great team of people who pull together and work together. Through the global pandemic, they have been superb in their teamwork and being there for our community and one another. That is why we are a wonderful family. We care, we share, we’re there for each other and collaborate with one another and we look after each other and our children are incredibly fortunate to be amongst such wonderful educators, educating themselves for their own aspirations in life.
