Pre-school is the foundation of a Montessori education. We offer a full programme for children aged three to six years. We also offer a playgroup for toddlers and parents interested in joining our community.

Playgroup 0–3 years

Our playgroup provides a nurturing Montessori environment for children from birth to three years. It’s also a wonderful way for parents and caregivers to learn more about Montessori. The playgroup environment is designed to support your child’s natural development, independence and confidence. Sessions of no more than 16 children are supported by a Montessori co-ordinator. Parents and children may attend up to three mornings each week. When your child is ready, they can transition into our preschool classes as they turn 3 years old.

Preschool 3–6 years

Our preschool programme is designed to support your child’s growing curiosity and encourage them to explore and learn with the guidance of qualified Montessori teachers. The preschool learning environment has specially designed Montessori materials to engage your child to make discoveries and develop their concentration, motivation and self-discipline. Your child will learn to cooperate with children of different ages and to respect and celebrate the efforts of others. They will also learn to take care of themselves, others and their environment.

Our preschool classrooms are called Pōhutukawa, Rewarewa, Nīkau and Kōwhai.
