My daughter has been going to Helensville Montessori since she was 2yrs old and she is almost 5yrs old now. I couldn't recommend this kindy enough. They have great ethics and the way they teach is outstanding for a kindy. Its not like a centre where you drop them off and they play in a sand pit all day, they teach reading, writing, maths and more. My daughter has really benefited from this Montessori. She is now all ready for school at the end of this year because Montessori has prepped her right from the beginning. The teachers are absolutely LOVELY soft spoken which is great because the kids trust them and aren't scared of them, they respect each individual child for who they are. I love Helensville Montessori. I can't wait to send my next child there!!!!!!

Teachers do amazing things with my very energetic boy and he trusts them a lot. Always very positive and welcoming to parents & children on arrival. So many practical things to do; peel boiled eggs, butter on crackers, grating cheese! A great learning environment and teachers are so calm and softly spoken.

Our daughter has just started attending Helensville Montessori and already feels at home. She loves the routine and calmness the centre provides. The learning opportunities I observed during visits will only enhance her readiness for school. The staff are amazing and you can tell they have a real passion for what they do. I highly recommend Helensville Montessori as the perfect stepping stone before school.

Being an early childhood educator myself I researched where I thought would be best for my child. My daughter loves it at Montessori and learnt a lot in her time there. I know that all her needs are being catered for and that she is reaching her full potential. Highly recommend this centre
