Montessori Children’s House is a warm and welcoming Montessori Preschool in Henderson, West Auckland catering for children aged 2 to 6 years of age and offering both sessional and full day care and education.

Montessori philosophy offers student-centred lessons and activities where children are hands-on and active participants. Our Montessori teachers act as guides and consultants to students on a one-on-one basis and each child is assisted along his or her own learning path. Our well-resourced environment is supportive of this approach.

At the preschool we offer a beautiful spacious playground with many natural elements and lovely established trees.

We have two classrooms so that our programme can be tailored to meet the individual needs of children. Ruma Iti is our introductory classroom for 2 year olds and Ruma Nui classroom is for older children transitioning to continue with the 3-6 year old curriculum.

Our families benefit from excellent child to teacher ratios and a stable and passionate teaching team who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge.

We offer 20 ECE hours and fees for additional hours are affordable and competitive.
