Pricing & Fees

Fees are billed weekly, and are required to be paid two weeks in advance, including prior to your child starting at our pre-school. Whilst we do accept cash, we prefer that you set up a weekly or fortnightly automatic payment. Bank account details are on our emailed invoice.

A non-refundable enrolment fee of $50 applies to each child – this covers our administration fee and MANZ (Montessori Association of New Zealand) membership. This is charged again if restarting with us.

The following fees are effective 14th June 2021.

The above fees include lunch and snacks, as well as the 20 hours ECE subsidy for children three years old and over - for up to 6 hours each day. We do not offer sibling discounts.

Gluten / Dairy free / Special meal children will be charged $2 per booked day (excluding booked holidays), to cover the additional costs of preparing these meals - sign up for these meals on our Food Form.

Children must:

  • be in attendance between 9-12am for our Montessori work cycle
  • attend three consecutive days, minimum
  • attend a minimum of 25 hours a week if they are over three years of age
  • bring a piece of fruit every day as a contribution to the community
  • bring their own milk and nappies – they are not included.

    We carry a Healthy Heart award which includes a nutritionally balanced menu. We are also an egg-free, pork-free and nut-free centre (including in any baking). We offer water to drink, except in the babies room where it is provided by parents. All meat is Halal, and every meal has vegetarian, dairy and gluten free options available.

    Any extra-curricular activities that a parent opts for will also be billed weekly, and permission will be sought for your child to attend and for you to be charged for these activities prior to them taking place.

    Information in relation to WINZ subsidies is also available on request. (e.g. families earning less than $1400 per week gross with one child, may be eligible for a WINZ childcare subsidy).
