We offer half day and full day sessions for up to 24 children from 2 yrs and 10 months.

The following options are available:

  • five morning or
  • five afternoon sessions per week or
  • five full days per week or
  • five days - combination of morning and full days

Session times are:

Morning: 9 am - 12 pm
Afternoon: 12.30 pm - 3.30 pm
Full day: 9 am - 3.30 pm

The preschool is open during the primary school term holidays (fees on days attended only) but closes down for three weeks over the Christmas/New Year period.


Deciding on an education for your child is one of the toughest decisions parents have to make. At Tawa Montessori Preschool we foster your child's growth, inspire their curiosity and nurture peace.

With a Montessori philosophy and a very strong emphasis on multi cultural, environmental and nature education, we provide an excellent foundation for your child's education.

Our next Open Day is in Spring 2022

In the interim you are welcome to arrange a personal classroom visit. These are available most days by appointment and are usually undertaken 3-6 months before a child turns three. By observing the classroom you will be able to see our programme in action and get an overall feeling to help you decide if we may be the right fit for you and your family.
