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

To all the wonderful teachers Thank you. You’ve looked after, cared for and taught our daughters for such a long time now, we feel like you’re part of the family. Thank you so much for looking after them with so much love. Keep doing all the wonderful things you do, we have really enjoyed being a part of it, onto the next chapter... Kylie, Ivy & Penny

Kylie, Ivy & Penny

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.


Initially we were drawn to Little Earth Queenstown because of the smaller staff to student ratios, the calm physical environment and the unique, effective teaching strategies. Once established at the centre these aspects became secondary to the outstanding staff who worked there.

Once there our daughter developed a sense of belonging, rapidly becoming a part of the Montessori family. She was always treated with dignity and respect and given many opportunities to explore and learn
