Education & Care Plans

On the face of it,  writing an academic plan or education and care plan (under KHDA in Dubai) for a nursery is easy. How hard can it be?

So many (actually one too many) of my clients have made this assumption, which has led to thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Avoid the stress of another rejected academic plan and contact me today.

Owner ECC, Dubai

“I am so very thankful for contacting Patricia from Professional Minds in November 2022. She has rescued my company as we needed to rewrite our Education and Care Plan. I am from the USA and she had taken over the process, allowing us to submit the plan within a short period of time and providing advice on how to liaise with the KHDA. We now have a license and have opened the doors to a new early childhood centre in Jumeirah!


Patricia works to high standards and I hope to continue to use the services of Professional Minds”.

Owner of 3 nurseries, UAE

“PRMINDS was strategic in starting up my early childhood center in Dubai in 2022. I had come to a standstill and was uncertain about securing the licence.


However, within a short time Patricia Mezu was able to provide excellent advice and I secured the licence”. 

“Patricia has been pivotal in allowing me to expand my brand. I have no hesitation in recommending Professional MInds as an early years advisory service.”

Owner of 2 nurseries, UAE

“I have worked with Patricia for over many years. She was the consultant when we opened our early childhood centre in Dubai and worked with us until we opened. She wrote the academic plan, advised on curriculum, lesson plans, recruitment and the overall development of a successful start up.


PRMINDS continues to advise on the recent development of our brand and we are very happy with her professionalism and expertise in  early years”.
