“Developing a desire to learn is the kindling point of all classroom achievement” – Robert John Meehan
Learning is a journey of exploration that should be full of joy. At MBE, we believe that every child has potential and that every child deserves to learn in a better way. Our aim is to help your child unleash the talent within and craft a blueprint for success in the future. We place emphasis on the process of learning, which in turn brings about high achievement when coupled with discipline and perseverance. It is this attitude towards learning and exploration that empowers us (even as adults) as we continue to grow!
There are two distinctions that you will notice at MBE: (1) the teacher-to-student ratio of our classes; and (2) the individualized education plan for students at every stage of the academic journey. Every individual learns at a different pace, and our programs have been designed as such. Coupled with a positive learning environment, our aim is to build solid foundations and develop the confidence to tackle challenges.
Since 2011, we have established a reputation among parents and students for consistently helping students achieve their personal and academic goals, and gain admissions into the likes of James Ruse Agricultural High School, North Sydney Girls High School, Normanhurst Boys High School, Girraween High School, Sydney Grammar School, Meriden School for Girls, and St Ives North Public School (Gifted and Talented Unit).
“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.” – Clay P. Bedford
Here are a few quotes that are representative of our values at Mind Builder Education.

“Looking back, I realize that nurturing curiosity and the instinct to seek solutions are perhaps the most important contributions education can make.” – Paul Berg
