Montessori Testimonials

"The best and most authentic Montessori preschool in Auckland! Both my children went to this school for the full 3 years and they absolutely thrived. Although they are both at school now, they still talk about Titoki frequently and go visit. I can't imagine a better start to their educational journey. All the staff are extremely knowledgeable in Montessori philosophy and do a fantastic job delivering an authentic programme. As a Montessori teacher myself, I am truly grateful for the level of care, effort and education Titoki provides. Children acquire skills for life at this preschool! As my 6 year old said "Titoki is the best school ever!""

"Our son has recently graduated from Titoki Montessori. He absolutely loved his time there and we are very glad that we chose this preschool. At Titoki they follow a very authentic Montessori approach which values the whole child. The environment is fully prepared to suit the children’s needs, making child-led learning a really enjoyable experience for these pre-schoolers. The staff are absolutely wonderful, very nurturing and supportive and there is a great community vibe to the school. Our son left very well prepared for starting Primary School. We are so lucky to have such a high quality, authentic Montessori option right here in Torbay."

"My daughter could not have had a better pre-school experience. Titoki Montessori pre-school exceeded my expectations and helped develop my child into a caring confident person. A must for all 3 - 6 year olds! ‘Education is a natural process and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiencing the environment’ - Maria Montessori."
