Our Philosophy



Our Philosophy

PrintAt Montessori Beginnings, we aim to provide the community the opportunity to take part in an excellent quality Montessori preschool education, supported by the principles and strands of Te Whariki.

We see the child as a unique individual, deserving of a holistic education able to cater for their complete development…..cognitive, social, emotional, physical and cultural.

We will endeavour to help our children to grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit and secure in the sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society.

We believe that children learn by doing and this requires movement and spontaneous investigation, therefore we will provide them with many opportunities for self discovery and independence.

Family and Whanau are an important part of our centre and we encourage and appreciate their involvement in their child’s education.

At Montessori Beginnings we embrace the bicultiral nature of New Zealand and aim to provide the children with an understanding of the rich heritage of Aotearoa.
