The Children’s House is a Montessori preschool and kindergarten that guides a diverse group of children to become joyful and confident lifelong learners who respect others and the world around them.
Children’s House students are extraordinary citizens: independent, responsible, unique and confident in their abilities to influence their world.
The Children’s House was founded in 1973 by a group of Nashville parents seeking a quality early educational experience for their own young children. We serve 72 children in three multi-age classrooms guided by Montessori certified educators. Located in the Green Hills/Belmont area of Nashville, Children’s House offers Montessori early childhood and Kindergarten opportunities to children ages 3-6. Our campus includes an art studio, dedicated space for before school and after school childcare, adult meeting rooms, volunteer work areas, beautiful gardens and outdoor play and learning spaces.
Montessori is a unique educational method that fosters a child’s intrinsic desire to learn. At Children’s House, your child will learn to participate in a community of self-directed learners and creative thinkers, and use his/her own mind to solve problems. Our educational approach focuses on the whole child – cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. At Children’s House, we give children the language and structure to nurture their independence, confidence, and creativity.
We invite you to explore our website and learn why Children’s House is the place to foster your child’s love of learning. If our school seems like a good fit for your child and family, please contact us to set up a virtual visit.
What Our Families Are Saying
~ Todd and Carlie Cruse ~
Parents of Marlow and John Crawford
“We love Children’s House for the teachers! They have years of combined Montessori experience; sensitivity to each child’s needs with gentle but firm encouragement; they implement social-emotional learning as well as Montessori education; and longevity at the school, which is important to us. Of course, we also love the outdoor classroom!”
~ Jessica and Keith Massey ~
Parents of Taryn
“As an alumni, the values and skills that I learned at The Children’s House were a huge part of my formative years. As parents, we are so happy that our child now gets to attend the same school and learn through Montessori teachings. One month into his first year we saw major improvements in his confidence, social skills, and desire to learn about the world around him.”
