Montessori at Arrowtown, part of the BestStart family, is located in the heart of beautiful Arrowtown, licensed for 50 children with a Preschool and Nursery. We are proud to be part of a multi-cultural community which has proved beneficial to both our children and staff, enabling them to learn about, understand and respect the exciting cultural diversity within our community.
At Montessori at Arrowtown the team is committed to providing high quality child care and education along with warm, friendly, fun, and stable environments in which children can explore and learn. Expectations for children’s behaviour are well established and adult’s positive guidance fosters children’s social and emotional competence. There is strong emphasis on developing self management skills, also children are self motivated learners and empowered by teachers to make choices.
