Burnham Country Montessori Preschool

Our objective at the Burnham Country Montessori Pre-school is to inspire  life long learning within a sustainable ennvironment, filled with respect and aroha, creating global citizens.

We aim to develop each child’s independence, concentration, gross and fine motor skills, co-ordination, self esteem, social skills and awareness, intelligence, language skills and self-discipline, control and order. We also aim to help develop each child’s whole personality and to cultivate the child’s natural love of learning and their inquisitiveness.

Our teaching teams are diverse, with a wide range of experiences, not only in early childhood education, but in life. They all bring their own unique and individual teaching styles to the teaching teams, with enthusiam and a love of teaching.
