Welcome to Capital Montessori School.

The Italian educationalist Dr Maria Montessori recognised that the first six years of your child’s life are the most important – their adult personality, attitudes, world-view -  all will be formed in those early years of life. Through a lifetime devoted to education, she also uncovered a pure, simple truth: that children learn best through experiences of discovery, exploration and self-discovery. We call this “Learning by doing”.

Capital Montessori in Wellington is a pre-school for children aged 3 to 6 years where Montessori principles are embraced to help children develop their independence, confidence and a love of learning. Our website is both an introduction and a resource where you can discover more about our approach, teachers, activities and most importantly all the benefits that Capital Montessori offers your child.

Rata Playgroup at Capital Montessori is a caring and peaceful environment where parents and their children under 3 come together. We have three sessions per week with the option of coming to more than one session. The community is parent-run and provides a place for parents to develop relationships, find support, and learn about ways to support children under 3. The community is for families that have children at the School or are interested in joining the School. Find out more
