Little Earth centres are a home away from home for children aged 0-6. Little Earth children learn with confidence, and develop independence and a courageous love of learning, through our child-centred methodology where children choose their ‘work’, and are given guidance and support by our fantastic teachers, in an environment that encourages calm and purposeful learning.

Hear from our parents

We really have found a gem in Little Earth Montessori Kapiti. Teddy LOVES it! We have noticed a calmness since moving to the centre, he is easy to communicate and converse with and is compassionate and responsible.  He has also made some great friends and often talks about them and the teachers at home and on the weekends. He finds learning about his environment and doing jobs like making bread, cutting the fruit, watering plants and taking care of the centre really satisfying. 

Little Earth Montessori Kapiti has far exceeded our expectations - the level of care is so high, and my husband and I know our son is in safe and caring hands. As an ex-educator myself, I hold the professionalism and creativity of these teachers in very high regard. As a working mum it's not easy to leave your children with others every day.  We are so grateful to the staff for being such a safe, supportive and positive force in our whanau.

Little Earth has provided a quality toolbox for our daughter that she will use for life. The quality of care and attention was always beyond reproach everyday. Every staff member engaged with the children and parents constantly. Children were treated with respect and dignity. Parents were always acknowledged, suggestions were always listened to and where possible implemented. I particularly love the way someone greets the children everyday. The trips were consistent with their age. The parent evenings and story park feedback are extremely valuable, useful and appropriate. I will miss everything about little Earth Montessori.
