Preschool Programme

Our preschool programme offers a foundation for life. Everything we do is designed to nurture a child's joy and love of learning, independence and self-motivation, confidence, respect and creativity. The first two years prepare your child for meaningful, holistic exploration of key learning areas - practical life, sensorial, language, music, mathematics, science and cultural topics. The final year is the culmination of these two years - where the concepts and skills they have learned truly blossom and a 'love of learning' becomes a strong and enduring part of who they are.

The Montessori Classroom

The Montessori classroom is the ideal environment for young enquiring minds to develop their problem solving abilities, visualise abstract ideas and have lots of fun all at the same time. Children love using the interactive Montessori materials to explore interesting and important concepts. Our classrooms are warm, inviting, peaceful places carefully prepared to stimulate and inspire our children and support their natural development.

The outdoor environment is a vital part of every child's learning. Each of our classrooms have their own native, flower and vegetable gardens and the children have free access to outdoor spaces throughout the seasons.  

We have two preschool classrooms (Koru and Kowhai) with children aged under six years. The school day is from 8.30am to 1pm or 3pm each day. We follow the primary school terms with four terms each year and an extended break in Summer.

Play is the work of the child
