Our warm and welcoming Thrive Montessori centres follow the teaching principles of Maria Montessori, helping nurture learners who are socially, academically and emotionally well-developed and ready for life’s challenges.

Each of our centres is an appealing, purpose-built environment. We support our highly qualified teachers by resourcing each centre with high quality, carefully selected Montessori materials that support our children’s holistic learning experience.

About Us

Thrive Montessori centres are a home away from home for children aged 0-6. Thrive Montessori children learn with confidence, and develop independence and a courageous love of learning, through our child-centred methodology where children choose their ‘work’, and are given guidance and support by our fantastic teachers, in an environment that encourages calm and purposeful learning.

Whats New

Learning about the moon

After we celebrated Matariki, all the talk, and singing about the stars lead the conversation to outer space, and the moon. We had a bit of fun recreating the phases of the moon using Oreo cookies.

Winter has arrived at Thrive Montessori Queenstown

Introducing Thrive Montessori

Toward the end of last year, we took on the exciting task of creating the first sub-brand for Evolve Education Group. At the time, there were only four Montessori centres across the country, and Lollipops Educare Remuera was being transitioned to Montessori. After a few months of consultation with our Centre Managers, we feel the result is an inclusive, holistic approach that encapsulates both what Montessori stands for and what we aspire to achieve.

Testimonials

  • When we were looking for a Montessori pre-school for my son we found [Thrive Montessori Rosedale] and upon enquiring they were extremely helpful and friendly. After coming for a first visit we were instantly convinced it was the right choice and we have had no regrets in our decision.

    Thrive Montessori is a lovely environment for the children and every time I pick up my son I experience a friendly reception from all the teachers and I have found them very understanding and supportive.

    We receive regular communication and wonderful updates on our son’s progress including great photos and information on his current learning so we feel involved in his day-to-day activities. We absolutely recommend [Thrive Montessori Rosedale] to other parents.”

  •  I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone for all you have done.

    I would like to acknowledge your talent as educators. I have been constantly amazed over the last 6 years, at the depth of your understanding and skill, your commitment to your students, and the results that you effect with the wonderful kiddies, including ours.

    The life skills you give them at the start of their life journey is a real gift, and an asset that they carry with them as they move into the next step of their lives. Today our child bounced into his new class, keen to get on with it. I am pretty sure he will be quite a scholastic achiever.

     He seems very structured, precise and particular about how things are done, and likes to figure out how things work.

     Certainly at Thrive Montessori Queenstown those inherent talents of his have had every chance to develop, grow and flourish under your tutelage. I’m really looking forward to seeing him progress as I know he will.

  • The decision for M to go there was by far the best thing we have done


  • "We leave richer for knowing you and are confident that our precious I. and S. have had the best possible start in life.


  • We have grown as parents and learned a lot from working in partnership with you.


  • Initially we were drawn to [Thrive] Montessori Queenstown because of the smaller staff to student ratios, the calm physical environment and the unique, effective teaching strategies. Once established at the centre these aspects became secondary to the outstanding staff who worked there.

    Once there our daughter developed a sense of belonging, rapidly becoming a part of the Montessori family. She was always treated with dignity and respect and given many opportunities to explore and learn
