To receive the full benefit of a Montessori education, it is important that your child attends at least three full days per week in the Preschool.

We offer “20 Hours ECE Subsidy” for 3-5 year olds and ask for an Optional Charge to cover our programme which provides over and above the Ministry of Education Regulations. Some parents may also be eligible for a WINZ childcare subsidy.

Enrolling your child at Little Sweethearts entitles your family to free membership of the Montessori Association of New Zealand (MANZ). You will receive their very informative quarterly publication with our endorsement and compliments.

Full conditions of enrolment and charges are explained in the Parent Handbook and Enrolment Form.

To enrol your child we invite you to make an appointment to visit us.

Our environments are uncluttered, with a place for everything and everything in its place. We offer a warm, home-like environment where children work on their own and with others. The beautiful indoor environment is light and spacious, providing lovely natural light for the children to work in. The outdoor environment provides beautiful spaces to work and explore.
