About Us : Introduction

"Smart Start will provide a preschool where all activities are guided by Maria Montessori’s vision of holistic development – cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth. In so doing, Smart Start will cultivate a child’s education for living a purposeful life."

Kia Ora, Hello and Welcome to Smart Start Montessori Preschool.

Smart Start Montessori Preschool had it's humble beginnings over 20 years ago, in Elisabeth Abbott's living room. Since then, it has evolved into a boutique, 2 classroom preschool located in the Auckland  suburb of Mt Eden.

We offer a well balanced early childhood education programme using the Montessori method of teaching. This fosters an holistic development for your child, respecting their emotional, spiritual, physical and moral facets. Maximum involvement between home and preschool is always encouraged.

The children work co-operatively in a mixed age child care setting, where values of respect and independence are cultivated. Children develop tools for learning and master academic skills. They learn to concentrate, self-initiate, problem solve and organise themselves.

We provide a structured learning environment - prepared into four general areas - the areas focus on: practical life, the five senses, language and maths. Two boutique classrooms are limited to 20 children (a ratio of 10 children to one teacher) to create an intimate learning environment. 

Our children's happiness and security is paramount, nurturing their desire and enthusiasm to learn.
