Montessori learning in a family environment


Children at the Golden Grove School learn in an intimate family setting. The school is located in a beautifully renovated historical building overlooking the Port of Onehunga. It is carefully prepared with the Montessori materials that set the child up for independent, interactive and stimulating learning.

Golden Grove caters for full primary and intermediate education. The junior classroom consists of children aged 5-9 and the senior classroom has children aged 9-12. We are very happy to offer small class sizes.

Every child learns differently, hence we encourage children to direct their own learning and follow what interests them.

If education recognises the intrinsic value of the child’s personality and provides an environment suited to spiritual growth, we have the revelation of an entirely new child, whose astonishing characteristics can eventually contribute to the betterment of the world.

Golden Grove integrates the Montessori education method with a holistic philosophy of peace, community and empowerment. This allows the children to achieve academic excellence, independence, social skills, self-esteem and life skills.
