The teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori provide the foundation on which our Montessori Children’s House is built. Strong relationships between staff, parents and children are the framework within which we build a respectful, welcoming, nurturing community. We strive to be sensitive and responsive to the different cultures and heritages among our families.
Staff share a strong sense of commitment to the Montessori Principles supported by the NZ Early Childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki and provide a high quality programme that acknowledges and reflects The Treaty of Waitangi.
Our Montessori environment is designed to foster independence, responsibility, self-directed learning, self-worth and identity. In this way children are supported to believe in themselves, to explore, learn and discover.
