One of the walks in the Totara Hill Montessori Garden
We are unique because
At Totara Hill nature abounds, Tui's feed outside the window, we pick and eat apples in the orchard, the trees shade us and we have bush walks without leaving the property.
Our AMI Montessori training is internationally recognised.
We hope the children who spend their early years with us will reach their fullest potential, beginning their journeys through life with a passion for learning and a careful respect for all people, as well as the beautiful environment we live in.
We have limited places most terms, please contact us for availability.
"These words reveal the child's inner needs:
'Help me to do it alone'."
"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
