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 on Monday September 23rd. This is the perfect time to introduce your child to the preschool, meet our teaching team, explore our classroom and large garden and learn more about who we are and what we do. In the interim please contact us to register interest and as your child gets close to age 3 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 are the right fit for you and your family.
