Mimi Tamrat

Director of Early Childhood Education

"I believe in every child’s ability to become motivated and excited learner."

Mimi Tamrat brings over 30 years of top, diversified early childhood experience to her role as Director of Early Childhood Education at Stratford's new West Los Angeles campus. Before taking on her current role, Mimi taught preschool children and served as the Preschool Director at other local preschools. 

According to Mimi, children need to be in a nurturing and loving environment that allows them to be who they are and to pursue their unique passions and interests. She also knows that in order to succeed, children should be given permission to explore, take risks, and fail forward. 

Mimi believes in every child's ability to become a motivated and excited learner, and knows that it is up to the educators in their lives to make that happen.
