Welcome to Tōtara Hill Montessori

We hope the children who spend their early years with us will reach their fullest potential, beginning their journey through life with a passion for learning, a respect for all peoples and the environment we live in. 

At Tōtara Hill Montessori nature abounds, Tui's feed outside the window, we pick fruit in the orchard, the trees shade us, and we have bush walks without leaving the property.


Please contact us for availability.




"The child, with its immense physical and intellectual potential, is a miracle standing before us....this....should be passed on to all parents, educators, and other persons interested in children, because education from the start of life could really change present and future society"


Dr. Silvana Quattrocchi Montanaro, M.D
