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 and a careful respect for all people, as well as the environment we live in.
We are unique because:
At Tōtara Hill 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.
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
