We are a small preschool of just 20 children so with limited vacancies we do have a waiting list of between 6 and 18 months although occasionally places can become available. We encourage you to place your child on our waiting list before their first birthday to guarantee a place. Children do not need to be toilet trained to be able to start with us. We invite you to contact our office administrator who will let you know our current availability. She can also schedule you a visit with our Principal who will show you and your child around our preschool and answer any questions you may have. After the visit you are welcome to complete an application to go on our waiting list. Once on the waiting list you will be invited to attend our parent education evenings held 4 times each year where our Principal will speak about a different aspect of our curriculum. Topics include mathematics, language, science, the outdoor classroom, practical life skills, sensorial learning, environmental education, te reo Māori, art, music and dance. The following considerations are used in offering placements to children on our waiting list - whether the child has a sibling that attended, the age of the child, length of time on the waiting list, if particular days are requested, and those children with previous Montessori experience.Enrol Now!To start the enrolment process, please fill in a waiting list form (available for download at bottom of this page), and post to Aroha Montessori or complete, scan and email it to us along with the enrolment fee of $60. This can be paid electronically and the bank account details are on the bottom of the form.
