Totara Hill is the local Montessori Pre-school.
The MMPT is affiliated with Montessori Aotearoa New Zealand (MANZ) and as such our teacher and families benefit from the work done by this national organisation.
Each MMPT family receives quarterly MANZ newsletters and the Montessori Voices magazine, which are valuable resources for parent education.
The teachers and Trustees attend relevant Montessori in-services, workshops and conferences organised by MANZ throughout the year. We believe it is of great importance to provide our teacher with continued professional development which ensures our students are receiving quality Montessori education.
The Montessori Foundation is a nonprofit organisation dedicated to the advancement of Montessori education in the United States and abroad. It has an extensive online resource for Montessori information. We receive issues of "Tomorrow's Child" a magazine written specifically for parents with children enrolled in Montessori schools.
