What We Do

We provide a beautiful, happy, and safe Montessori school environment for children 3 to 6 years old.  Within this multi-age classroom, an American Montessori Society certified Montessori guide gives lessons to the children, and peer-to-peer learning is fostered and respected with the understanding that learning is a dynamic activity that can happen at any moment, alone or in tandem with a friend or guide.  

We provide instruction in the traditional Montessori curriculum areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, and Cultural; social-emotional learning; art; music and movement; exposure to Spanish, and how to be a kind and joyous human.


Movement and Music Classes

We offer monthly classes that complement the traditional Montessori curriculum.  These classes include:

Dance lessons with Shabaz 

Shabaz (of the Nashville Ballet) is sharing monthly dance lessons based upon the work of the following visual artists:  

  • June - Gerard Richter
  • July - Chuck Close
  • August - Josef Albers


​Janne Hennesaw, a folk song artist, is sharing music with the children once a month.  She is singing songs for dancing, singing along, listening, and increasing awareness of the world around us.

Yoga with Habitat Yoga

In Habitat Yoga's fun, exploratory classes, we embark on imaginative yoga adventures, combining simple yoga poses with engaging songs, stories, puppets and games. At the preschool level, we focus on exercises that build social, sensory and motor skills, while also increasing flexibility and body awareness. In a class full of self-expression, our youngest students learn how release energy through movement, but also how to focus through breathing and relaxation techniques. These classes are especially helpful for little ones who have trouble sleeping or an excess of overflowing energy.
