Welcome to Abintra Montessori, an intentional and inclusive community centered in developing confident, self-motivated learners who creatively meet the challenges of life.
It is this intentionality of focusing on the development of self that speaks to so many of our current and prospective families. Maria Montessori was one of the first great thinkers (a medical doctor and social scientist) that recognized that all children everywhere carry the internal abilities they need for optimal development. They are not empty vessels, but never-ending wonders of internal growth, sense-making, and knowledge acquisition.
At Abintra, we are committed to offering a prepared environment coupled with dedicated adult guidance that sparks joy, fosters independence, and engenders a deep love of learning centered in interest and exploring the natural world and human connectedness.
We value and welcome all families, of all types and make-ups, as we believe that Education is the pathway to peace for all communities. Our remarkable children, welcoming parent community, and deeply trained and talented Team make Abintra Montessori an authentic Montessori educational home in greater Nashville. We hope to meet you soon!
We must see the child from the point of the future man. We must understand that it is a human right that the child should grow in the right way because the man will grow from the child in a few years. This man must have the rights of every citizen.
~ Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 140
