Montessori Milestones
Based in Papamoa, we are a small family run preschool licensed for 20 children.  At Montessori Milestones we encourage respect for self, others and the environment.
Our education programme is hands-on, child led learning that:
  • focuses on the unique needs and gifts of each child
  • respects children and their natural ability and desire to learn
  • recognises the sensitive periods in children’s lives where certain skills are learned readily
  • guides self-discipline and respect for themselves, others and their environment
  • provides a non competitive environment with equitable opportunities for learning.
Our programme is sessional and runs in alignment with school hours from Monday to Thursday 8.30am – 2.30pm.  Children attend up to 4 days per week.

Kathyn Stewart

Kathryn discovered Montessori 17 years ago whilst in London on her Big OE.  It was there that she trained and fell in love with the Montessori Method.   It inspires her to see children following their own path in their own time.  The delight when, “did you see”, “I can do it”.  The amusement when they discover something new and the laughter as they share with each other.  “It is a privilege to share these special moments with you and your child, the enthusiasm when they are motivated, the expressions only your child has and watching the development as it unfolds”.
Kathryn looks forward to working together in partnership with you, hearing stories from home and sharing your child’s environment so you too can experience what Montessori is, the activities and resources that we use.  It is a method of respect for your child to gain all the knowledge available to them to prepare them not only for tomorrow but the future.  “I sincerely look forward to meeting you”.

The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.
