Welcome to Ashburton Montessori Preschool. We are a fully licensed Preschool that caters for children aged 4 months - 6 years.


Our Programme

Our programme at Ashburton Montessori Preschool provides your child with the opportunity to explore and learn in a safe and caring environment that promotes independence and respect. Your child will be involved in many activities including the Montessori materials – from pouring liquid and tying shoelaces to learning about nature. Other materials await each child’s interests in mathematics, reading and writing.

Your child’s individual activities with the Montessori materials are complemented with other experiences such as singing, creative art and crafts, baking, games and pottery.

An important aspect of Montessori education is the control of error, Dr Montessori found that children learned best when they had the freedom to correct their own mistakes so created materials that could be self correcting through the control of error.
