Welcome to Bright Beginnings Montessori


Inspiring children to learn



 Noble Purpose:

To inspire a positive attitude and support all members of our community to “learn how to learn” within an environment that is underpinned by the Montessori philosophy.


Bright Beginnings Montessori have adopted the following values for our Preschool Whānau to inspire, motivate and live within our learning community:

Integrity-     We seek to do the right thing even when no one is  watching

Respect-     We treat others positively and acknowledge them as individuals

Resilience-   We strive to bounce back and respond flexibly


Kindness-  We show thoughtfulness, generosity and       consideration


Fun- We encourage time for enjoyment together

Bright Beginnings Montessori is a family focused centre where family and community involvement are highly valued and supported. Our teachers are empowered by being part of a teaching team where there is a shared culture of decision making and fun as we learn alongside our families and children. Teachers are offered ongoing professional development to ensure we are providing high quality education and care with a good knowledge of the latest research and ideas.

Our aim is to provide a well resourced and structured environment to bring out the full potential of your child.  We have an expansive outdoor area to challenge and extend your child's physical development. Your child will be immersed in learning experiences in nature, with many messy play and creativity experiences offered daily. Our Montessori philosophy supports the developments of the "Whole Child". Children explore practical life experiences amongst many other areas of the curriculum as they explore with their innate passion for learning

We cannot thank the BBM Team enough. What an amazing environment for children and their Whanau's. Today our Daughter graduated and will be starting her school journey. Her teachers were not only amazing at supporting and developing her education, but more importantly she was surrounded by teachers who nourish, comfort and love our children as if they were their own. It warmed my heart to come in and see her having a cuddle from one of her teachers, or inventing games outside. We LOVE all the staff from the nursery right the way up to the Fantail room. Amazing owners and so welcoming from the minute you meet them. We are so grateful for all the love, laughs and hugs we have shared at this amazing preschool. Highly Highly recommend BBM.

"Absolutely love Bright Beginnings for our son, the team are so loving and kind. Zoe is amazing and very approachable. Our wee boy has learnt so much since he's been there and we will be very sad when he leaves in 2 weeks to go to school 😭😭 Highly recommended"

"Our daughter Esme adores her time at Daycare. We can not thank you enough for your caring and nurturing attitude towards our little one. You made the transition back into work so much easier for me. Esme is thriving and you are playing such an active role in her development! We highly recommend Bright Beginnings".
