Learning Links Childcare


Limited Spaces

Learning Links – Queens Dr, St Kilda, Montessori Dunedin

Learning Links Montessori is an Early Childhood setting on Queens Drive in St Kilda Dunedin. We follow the Montessori philosophy of child-directed learning with a big emphasis on the development of independence.

Our programme is designed to support the children’s growing curiosity and encourage them to explore and learn with the guidance of qualified Montessori teachers.

We provide a nurturing and well prepared environment where the children can develop independence and respect for both the natural world and each other. Our Montessori approach is strongly interwoven with the TeWhariki -the Zealand Early Childhood curriculum . Balanced with group activities, a beautiful outdoor learning environment and regular whanau events to promote a strong community feeling.

Our mixed age group settings foster a strong sense of community in which the children care and collaborate with each other.

We believe learning is an exciting process of discovery, leading to concentration, motivation, self-discipline, and a love of learning. By giving children easy access to well-organised equipment and resources as well as the freedom to choose activities they are interested in, they experience the excitement and fun of discovery at their own pace.

We are a passionate team of educators who strive to support the children on their individual leaning journey to become independent human beings.

The Montessori philosophy doesn’t just prepare the child for school, rather gives them tools to life creating a love of lifelong learning.

Feel free to arrange a visit to discuss the philosophy in more detail and to view our three Montessori environments-Nido, Rata and Kowhai.

With a complete new internal fitout and all new resources and an incredible refresh outdoors you will love our new look environment.
