Choosing an education for your child is one of the most important decisions you can make as a parent.  We are proud to be able to offer a Montessori choice at Howick Primary School.

Our HPS Montessori Academy was proudly opened in 2003 and is very proud of its strong reputation and commitment to the philosophy of Maria Montessori.

The Montessori @ Howick Primary is a member of Montessori Aoteroa New Zealand (MANZ) which signifies our commitment to professional excellence and to promoting Montessori within New Zealand.

The HPS Montessori Academy is excited to have begun work on the Montessori Journey to Excellence pilot programme and celebrates our selection as only 3 Montessori Schools in New Zealand to have been asked to participate.

Montessori education at HPS is provided within the framework of the New Zealand National Curriculum and in addition our Montessori students participate in school wide cultural, social, sporting and arts programmes.  Our experienced teachers, specialised learning materials and community focused school make Montessori @ Howick Primary an exceptional school to attend.

Montessori @ Howick Primary welcomes applications from children attending a Montessori pre school in New Zealand or overseas.  It is important to place your child’s name on the waiting list as early as possible by completing the HPS Montessori Expression of Interest form.

Once you are on the waiting list we will send you a copy of our information and enrolment booklet as well as keep in contact with you via email.  This means you will be included in newsletters and invitations to family and educational events.

For further information about Montessori and the Montessori Enrolment Process please contact our Montessori Academy Enrolment Co-ordinator, Kathryn Taylor,
