Mana Montessori has been providing high quality early childhood education for children from throughout the Porirua Basin for over 26 years.  Our programme is carefully designed to meet the needs of 2½ to 6 year olds.  We offer an attractive, stimulating learning environment, indoors and out, with highly trained teachers at our purpose-built school at Endeavour Park, Whitby.  As a community preschool, we endeavour to keep our charges as affordable as possible - please contact us for 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) during school terms.
