About Us

Your Child Is in Great Hands

Philosophy

At Dreamers Nest Montessori we provide all children with a warm and caring educational environment.

We encourage our children to become confident, competent and independent individuals, who will leave our centre with a love and joy for learning.

The Teachers at Dreamers Nest Montessori are inspired by Maria Montessori’s approach to learning, which advocates the holistic development of each child through a specially prepared environment. 

The Montessori approach recognises in each individual child a natural desire to learn.

Our Teachers are talented and passionate about what they do and enjoy every day they spend with the children.

Our centre

Each of our room is calm, warm, friendly and aesthetically pleasing. We provide our children with quality learning experiences through well organised science-based Montessori materials. Our emergent curriculum is based on the principles of the New Zealand national curriculum known as Te Whariki.

We have an outdoor environment where evergreen and deciduous trees are present; a place where children can learn, play and explore while surrounded by plants and flowers.  

We are a well-established centre, where many treasured memories have been made and a place where whanau and friends are always welcomed. We value every child’s identity and respect diversity, by celebrating and supporting their cultural background through Maori Tikanaga teaching practices. 

An integral part of our core curriculum is Grace and Courtesy, where Empathy and Social relationships among mixed ages.
