Established in 2007, Bambini Montessori is located in the Donelson area in Nashville, Tennessee. We serve children ages 8 weeks – 4th 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 and at their developmental level. The children get a lot of one on one lessons and learn about respect for themselves and those around them. We are state certified through the Tennessee Department of Education. Bambini Montessori is a member of the American Montessori Society.
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. Bambini 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.
