Love this place. I will only use this childcare. They truly love and take care of the children. My son (only child) is now going to be 8 and I am so thankful they have opened care for 8 and up. He has been with Mrs Moore (Owner) since he was 8 weeks old. I did the pop-in check up and all was perfect. I have picked up my son unannounced at all times of the day over the years and have never been disappointed. Thank you all at LPLC for the love and care you have shown my son over the years.

I live close by and all I can hear during the day is "caretakers" screaming at the children. Not for discipline, but just yelling. I can't imagine that children are bad enough to constantly be screamed at. I have a son that is 2 1/2 and every day for the past year I have walked through their drive since it's nice and it gives me a little more length away from the street. Today, for no reason, I'm not sure which woman it was, but she screamed at me to get off their private property and that she had told me this before. I was so shocked that I had no response and kept walking but apparently I didn't move fast enough because she proceeded to scream and cuss at me. Like I said, I'm not sure who she was in relation to the school but I know I wouldn't want her anywhere near my son.
My children are no strangers to Montessori education and have grown up in the Montessori environment. I can say this school is truly the area's best kept secret. One would never know what is tucked away there! It is a small school, but certainly not small in learning and good care. The director, Nikki, is the very embodiment of Montessori. She is kind, passionate, energetic, and possesses all of the qualities that would make Maria Montessori proud. She is never without a smile, is humble, and always professional. You can't manufacture the joy she has in what she does. If we've ever had a question or issue, the staff has never once been defensive or unavailable. You could go to the school at any point in the day and note the cleanliness, safety, and comfortable atmosphere. The extra touches the school does and their drive to always improve is amazing...for instance, the sign in process is done via a personal pin that you are given upon start. You put in your pin upon arrival in an Ipad on the wall. Any person able to pick up your child has their own pin, and each parent is emailed the time and who dropped off and picked up the children. That is the most thorough and safe drop off and pick up process I've ever encountered anywhere. The teachers are all attentive, and kind. They attend to every detail. If my slobbering teething baby has a wet shirt from the drool, they immediately change the shirt and tell me about it at the end of the day. If something seems out of the ordinary, they are quick to tell me about it. My almost 3 year old daughter has been able to do gardening, she's learned about the parts of the body, she's learned about the solar system, and she was recently so excited to tell us about South America. She is excited to go to school, and excited to tell her about day (and sometimes hard to get to leave!). My baby does a variety of activities to encourage and inspire his curious mind. My daughter smiles ear to ear talking about her school. This learning environment is small, it is warm, and it's an excellent place of happiness and learning. They prepare children well, and encourage hand washing and encourage and hone independence in many ways (I can only say we've not had the experience another reviewer had...even my young baby washes hands upon arrival), they drink out of actual open cups, they learn how to be good citizens in a community. They allow children to make messes, but they don't just leave the mess on them. They teach and model kindness, and they have fun! These are all reasons why I choose Montessori, and you'll find this school executes the learning style well. I couldn't be more pleased with how my children are cared for. Ms. Nikki is truly a gem, and her school is sincerely a jewel in Donelson as well. No need to take my word for it...visit and you will see.
The teachers at Bambini Montessori are great. They talk to me constantly about my child and their learning progression.
This is the pre-school where both my children went, and what a wonderful, smart, and fun enviroment it was -- not only for the kids for but for we parents, too! The teachers are first-rate, and the administration is friendly and effecient.
Percy Priest is an outstanding elementary school! Our daughter is on her fourth year and we continue to be impressed by the staff and administration. The quality of instruction is high and we've always felt that our teachers are keenly aware of our daughter's strengths and weaknesses and get her extra help if needed. The class sizes are about 20. The art and music teachers are amazing. The culture is positive and supportive. The school has extra resources for helping kids with learning differences. The PTO is very active and raises a lot of funds to make the school successful. We feel this public school ranks up there with any private school. They even added recess time this year, which took away the only complaint we had previously.
I am very impressed with Bambini Montessori and everyone who works there. Thank you and everyone who works here.
Great teachers, bright classrooms, and excellent playground. BWS is such a wonderful place for kids. I think the most important thing at BWS is that teachers love kids!
If you have clear objectives and goals, Owen will provide you everything you need to be successful. I must mention the faculty at Owen. They are extremely helpful and professional, and alway preparing to answer your questions.
We could not be happier!!! Our son has just thrived since beginning BWDS. Both his educators and staff members have created such a nurturing environment for him to grow as they PLAY!!
