Daisy Cottage supports children in their first plane of development.  Starting from 2 years of age, children can attend up until their 6th birthday when they are legally required to be enrolled in a primary school (Montessori or Mainstream).

Supporting the second plane of development, the following schools offer Montessori primary classrooms for children from 6 to 12 years in the Tauranga area.  If you are considering continuing Montessori education for your child, you should be making contact with the Tauranga Montessori Education Trust (TMET) around your child’s 4th birthday.

“This is education, understood as a help to life; an education from birth, which feeds a peaceful revolution and unites all in a common aim, attracting them as to a single centre. Mothers, fathers, politicians: all must combine in their respect and help for this delicate work of formation, which the little child carries on in the depth of a profound psychological mystery, under the tutelage of an inner guide. This is the bright new hope for mankind.”

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind

    Hi there

    I was wondering if you have space for my son from March 2022 when he will be 3 years old?

    Many thanks

    Hi there, I was hoping to get some more information around fees when the child is under 3 years old, and for when the 20 free hours apply.
    Also, is there a minimum number of days to attend?
