Our mission is to promote the joy of independence while working in a family oriented environment which enhances tamariki's sense of trust.

We thrive to provide a caring, child friendly environment which empower children to become confident, competent learners and communicators.

Guided by the Principles of Te Whariki we aim to foster the social, cultural, spiritual, intellectual and physical development of tamariki by delivering a child centred, holistic curriculum.

“ Our family has experienced four other preschools prior to our youngest son attending Tipu Montessori, and as a parent of a child who is extremely advanced, I believe that Tipu Montessori best provides the environment, which assists and encourages my son’s learning and development. This has been made possible by having relevant structures and systems in place, the appropriate resources available and most importantly, by having genuine, nurturing and professional staff who are always friendly and very welcoming. Our family has been very fortunate and feel truly blessed that our son has had the opportunity to learn and grow at such a wonderful preschool, and where a strong academic foundation has been aided. A HUGE thanks to all the staff. ”
