Horizons Montessori Preschool - New Lynn

Horizons Montessori Preschool opened in 2000 and is proudly owned and operated by Mike and Helen Emberson, both qualified early childhood teachers.

Since 2013 our ERO report has assessed us as very well placed to promote positive learning outcomes for children.  We are proud that this assessment positions us in the top 20% of New Zealand preschool centres and requires a routine visit every four years.

Our preschool offers a family feel, catering to 30 children aged 2-6 years, with a caring and nurturing atmosphere.  It’s a place that teachers’ parents and children can feel a strong sense of ownership and belonging – a wonderful foundation for the early years.

We are inspired by children’s interest and love of learning and we support this through an environment rich in resources and devoted, passionate Early Childhood teachers.
