Music City Montessori

Established in 2020, Music City Montessori is located in the Donelson area in Nashville, Tennessee.
We serve children ages 8 weeks through 5th grade.
We employ Dr. Maria Montessori's method of teaching.  The environment is a mixed age grouping, this provides the opportunity for the children to learn from each other.
The children get lots of one on one lessons and learn about respect for themselves and those around them.
Our Mission is to provide an environment that encourages and entices the child to become self motivated to exhibit their own greatest learning potential while under the guidance of trained Montessori teachers.
Music City Montessori is dedicated to creating a community that instills peace, courtesy, respect, and a love for learning.
The children are given time to explore, to create, to relax, and to discover.
