Kia ora and welcome to Mahurangi Montessori Primary. 

We are a dedicated group of parents supporting an independent Montessori unit in partnership with Matakana School, north of Auckland.

The unit is fully integrated into the mainstream primary school. This ensures our children not only receive quality Montessori education, but also have access to wider cultural, sporting and social opportunities.


The unit opened in February 2009 founded by Jane Watson and has grown over the past 10 years to support 30 - 40 students to explore the NZ curriculum using a Montessori approach.


We welcome two new teachers for the 2018 academic year, Kavya Thomas, an experienced Montessori guide who has taught both in the UK and NZ, and Emma Gutmann a beginner teacher with a passion for Montessori education.
