March 2016 Recipients
Otaki Montessori Preschool received $514.28 to purchase Te Reo and Maori cultural resources to use in the classroom. Currently the preschool’s Maori cultural resources are sparse and there is little variety for the children to choose from.
The Preschool offers the Otaki community the opportunity to choose the Montessori method of education for their younger children.
These resources will enable the preschool to continue providing high quality early childhood education which embraces the learning of English and Te Reo, as well as engaging the children with the local Maori culture heritage.
