Our Story

  • Like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis Little Earth Montessori Havelock North is a beautiful jewel within the Havelock North village.
  • Our beautiful outdoor environment is designed to encourage and inspire all of our learners senses with gardens for planting and cultivating, to natural elements that invite our learners to explore freely.
  • Following the principles of Maria Montessori our children are engaged in learning through all of their senses, from tools and resources that inspire and stimulate curiosity to caring for ourselves and our planet.
  • With a curriculum that nutures a love of learning, respectful relationships, and is in harmony with nature, our children are resilient, purposeful, independent and caring.

We are extremely fortunate at Little Earth Montessori to have the combined expertise of teachers with rich and varied backgrounds in Early Childhood, Montessori and Primary, who are all invested in their own professional learning.

ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.

You can read our centre’s ERO review here.
