Montessori Rotorua Preschool offers care and education for children from infants to 6 years of age. Our infant toddler community combines the wisdom of Maria Montessori and Emmi Pikler. Our preschool programme is inspired by the work of Dr. Maria Montessori and known as the Montessori method of education.
Our philosophy is based upon the principle “Help me to do it myself” and encourages all children to:
- Be an active learner
- Be able to communicate
- Accept challenges
- Develop independence
Why choose Montessori Rotorua Preschool
Our children are all special. They each have individual talents. We want to develop their attributes to best advantage. At Montessori Rotorua Preschool we believe the Montessori method of education provides the best opportunity for each child to fulfil his/her potential. Montessori education is unique. It places emphasis on the child’s individual needs. The self paced curriculum offers opportunities for independence, exploration, discovery and creativity. In a Montessori program, a child gains an early enthusiasm for learning by pursuing his or her own individual interests according to personal abilities. It is this approach that gives the child the foundation from where he/she can develop to his or her fullest potential.
