Drop Off and Pick Up
MECE requires a signature from the authorized parent or guardian who is dropping off or picking up your child. A contactless signature option - where you sign your name on your own cell phone - is available to parents who download the Procare mobile application. (Please note: Procare's mobile app is available only to parents; other authorized guardians must sign their name on MECE's tablets).
To set up your cell phone:
Procare Childcare App for iPhone/iPad
Procare Childcare App for Android

MECE Preschool & Kindergarten partners with the following scholarship providers:
Family Empowerment Scholarships through Step Up for Students and AAA
The Family Empowerment Scholarship-Educational Options give families a choice of financial assistance toward private school tuition and fees based on financial need. Families of United States armed forces and/or law enforcement do not need to meet the income requirements.
The Family Empowerment Scholarship-Unique Abilities (formerly Gardiner and McKay) allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology – even a college savings account.
The Hope Scholarship is for students in grades kindergarten through 12 who are enrolled in a Florida public school and have been bullied, harassed, assaulted, threatened and/or a victim of other violent acts.
Parentally placed private school student with a disability does not have an individual right to receive some or all of the special education and related services that the student would receive if enrolled in a public school under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as amended.
