About Us

Little Sweethearts Montessori was established in 2007 to deliver an authentic Montessori Programme to preschool children in Tauranga. We are very proud of our achievements over these years and there are many LSM Graduates now performing very well across a broad spectrum of endeavours and looking back on their positive experiences at LSM.


We now have three preschools located in Greerton, Mount Maunganui and the Historic Village, catering for children aged 18months to 6 years. Our Historic Village preschool is also home to a Catholic Atrium , which provides a wonderfully quiet retreat for children to visit to

support them in their spiritual growth.


For parents in our community who desire to embrace Montessori principles in their home, we provide support through parent workshops & events called “Love Parenting.”


To augment our 3 preschools we have now established our own Montessori Teacher Training School, Montessori Centre Aotearoa (MCA.) MCA is affiliated with the London based Montessori Centre International (MCI) of which our Montessori Consultant, Rhonda is an accredited trainer.


Our website will give you a window into the Montessori classroom, the philosophy, the history and how you can enjoy the benefits of the Montessori method in your own home. So join us on our Montessori journey of discovery.
