About UsJenz Montessori

Jenz Montessori was created in humble conditions back in 1999 in a rented room with one pupil. A move to Hawkes Bay with a vision and passion to see Montessori education delivered and offered in Hawkes Bay, resulted in a permanent, purpose-built facility which is now Jenz Montessori. Although what is now a thriving centre, it emerged slowly building up family connections and often teaching a succession of siblings.

The vision for Jenz has always been steadfast:

  • To build a community not just a childcare service;
  • To foster 'Turangawaewae' – a place of belonging;
  • To deliver Montessori education to every child in line with New Zealand culture;
  • To ascertain an affinity with nature, animals and the environment;
  • All integral parts of Montessori.
