Aranui Montessori Preschool is located in Auckland's North Shore at 17 Chartwell Ave, Glenfield. 

In Te Reo Māori,  'Ara' means pathway and 'Nui' means great.

Aranui Montessori is a private preschool that offers a high standard of specialised care and quality education that is deeply rooted in Montessori teachings, practices and philosophies.

Our goal at Aranui is to provide a stimulating platform that enables independent development by nurturing intelligence, curiosity and imagination whilst ensuring the well-being of all children in our care. 

Our school has been carefully designed to offer a homely and safe environment for children ages 2 to 5 years. It is equipped with scientifically prepared Montessori instruments and facilitated by qualified Montessori teachers. 

We at Aranui strive to provide a balance between education, social, emotional, physical, creative and developmental needs in a child's journey.
