Mana Montessori is a community early childhood service in Endeavour Park, Whitby. We have been providing high quality education in the Porirua Basin for over 25 years.Our programme is carefully designed to meet the needs of children from 2½ to 6 years we offer an attractive and stimulating learning environment, indoors and out, led by highly trained teachers.  We endeavour to keep our charges as affordable as possible - contact us for full details.

  • We offer Mornings (8.45 to 11.45am), Mornings Plus (five mornings a week plus Monday and Tuesday afternoons to 3.00pm) and Full Days (Monday to Friday 8.45am to 3.00pm). 

If you need longer hours of care for your child, we partner with Porse educators who can care for your child in their home and drop off at or collect your child from Mana Montessori.  These arrangements can continue when your child attends primary school with similar hours and terms to Mana Montessori.
