“You have all invested your time, energy and passion and we have watched her grow incredibly in her time with you. You have prepared her not only for school but for life in general and we thank you for this. It has been wonderful watching her growing passion for learning, reading, art and ballet. She has enjoyed every moment. Word cannot express our gratitude enough, but thank you.”


He said, “I miss you mum while I’m at school, when I went to Monte it was like going home but going to school is big and it feels like there might be bad guys there” I said “One day big school will feel like home just like Monte, you just have to get used to it.“ He replied “No it never will, Monte is a special place to me.”


“I have had 2 children go to Waikanae Montessori and I have been delighted with all the experiences they have had there. From the time I first sat in and enjoyed ‘mat time’ and the children telling news to the concerts, outings and preparation for school, I do not think my children could have had a better introduction to learning and socialising. They have both made great friends there.
The teachers are very friendly and kind and provide an environment that really nurtures a child. It encourages them to be independent and confident human beings.
I am so pleased we discovered Waikanae Montessori and I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
