Our ERO Report

The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood services. ERO’s reports are used by parents, teachers, early childhood education managers, school principals and trustees, and by government policy makers.

Early childhood services are reviewed on average once every three years. Reviews will be more frequent where the performance of a school or centre is poor and there are risks to the education and safety of the students, or less frequent where a school has a stable reporting history and demonstrates good self-review processes and use of its assessment information.

  • 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 Rosedale 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.
