MIK’s opened it's doors in Beijing, in 2004 as “Muffy’s Education”, a small English immersion school. The founder, John Kung, envisioned a school that felt like a family. A school that provided quality education grounded in care for children and respect for parents.

 

Ten years on and MIK has grown to include over 400 students… and we still feel like family.

 

In 2012, we changed our approach to kindergarten education and began adopting what we call a “Holistic Approach” to kindergarten education. Using Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory as the backbone of our curriculum, our education philosophy has evolved and now it emphasizes social, cognitive, and character development alongside the goal of language acquisition and proficiency.

 

After ten years we are evolving once again with a new visual identity which reflects and celebrates our expansion and development as a kindergarten. “Muffy’s Education” has evolved into “Muffy’s International Kindergarten” or “MIK”. Our fully licensed kindergarten now includes three different campuses, locations in Wanliu and Xiangshang locations, as well as a headquarters in Wangjing.

 

We take pride in our strong reputation for providing a caring, quality learning environment for our students and are committed to the ongoing advancement of our facilities, curriculum and teaching philosophy.

Is this review useful?
Have you taught or lived abroad before?:
Yes, lived and taught abroad
How supportive was your employer?:
Muffy's was not supportive at all, management is too busy filling their own pockets with money to worry about the teachers until something goes wrong and then they are quick to throw teachers under the bus.
How did your employer manage the administration side?:
Terrible, no teaching materials and teachers were constantly asked for things they wanted but the school never provided.
How well did your employer communicate?:
It was really awful, there was an unfortunate divide between the foreign staff and the Chinese staff. Management lies about everything and anything
How were day to day lessons and your students?:
Students were great, there is little flexibility which is difficult to work with when you have such young students.
Would you recommend this employer to someone else?:
No way

Have you taught or lived abroad before?:
I worked there some time ago. Worked with Muffy's for over a year
How supportive was your employer?:
Somewhat. It feels like the whole organisation was a "figure it out as we go" place. This was before being sold though, so now there's a parent company calling all the shots. No idea how that is.
How did your employer manage the administration side?:
For some it was perfect, for others it was a nightmare.
How well did your employer communicate?:
Too many emails, and half the campus staff didn't speak englihs so there was always a division among the staff.
How were day to day lessons and your students?:
Kids were generally awesome but the parents could be crazy.
Would you recommend this employer to someone else?:
Depends if the person is desperate enough and can already teach

Good reviews are really useful and we take them seriously. We ask a lot of questions to make sure, that they provide a well-rounded picture. You can post a review anonymously but we do ask for emails (won't be shown), in case we need to get in touch to clear up spelling, unclear answers etc.

Most importantly, thanks for writing one! A well written review is often the best advice another teacher can have.
