Montessori Children’s House Wanaka (MCHW) provides an ideal learning environment for children/tamariki to achieve their full potential. We deliver Te Whariki, the early childhood curriculum, based on Montessori principles in a purpose-built centre with qualified early childhood teachers alongside caring support staff.
By giving children/tamariki easy access to well-organised equipment and resources as well as the freedom to choose activities they are interested in, they experience the excitement and fun of discovery at their own pace. Our teachers help them to help themselves and encourage their creativity and natural talents. Balanced with group activities, outdoor learning experiences and prepared routines throughout the day, our children/tamariki develop a respect for themselves, other people and the natural world.
