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.

I am very impressed with Bambini Montessori and everyone who works there. Thank you and everyone who works here.
I have been very pleased and often surprised by the academic progress my daughter has made at Bambini Montessori.
The facility is new but disappointing. The class sizes are large and the teachers do not know how to differentiate their instruction for the needs of the students.
This is a small daycare center. Just a few years old. Nice building. Teachers are decent but not overly happy. Their prices are high. They should be paying their teachers more. Parking lot is way too small. Hard to pull out onto Learning Lane!
Children are treated in an individual, respectful manner. There are inclusive field trips on a regular basis that help students explore academic content in real world settings The guides use positive discipline to build confidence in children while teaching them personal life skillsThe rigor is high, and every student learns at his or her level. I cannot recommend this school highly enough. My child looks forward to going to school every day.
The Montessori School is an awesome place. I never have to worry about my new born. The care and attention she is given is commendable. I am blessed to have a safe place to bring my child. It definitely relieves the worry of having to leave my baby.
As the director of Leaps' n Bounds I strive to prodive quality care for all children. All teachers are required to become CPR and first aid certified as well as receive 20 hours of child related training annually. Teachers are also encouraged to conntinue their education in Early Childhood Education as well as provided with information to help them achieve this goal without taking on a finacial burden. I also continue to learn all I can by continuing my education in ECE as well. I am a member of National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and recently received the Tennessee Early Childhood Program Administrator Credential. I recommend that you check Leaps' n Bounds out if you are looking for a preschool that we love, nurture and develop your child.
Great school! Classes are very interactive and my daughter always came home learning something new like counting in Spanish and water transferring. She has been a student there for about a year and would have continued had it not been for us relocating. I found the environment to be very clean, friendly and encouraging. The Head Directress Nikki Hatcher was the most enthusiastic, energetic, and reasonable lady. She leads this school with a great amount of love and integrity. Each child is cared for as if they were her own child.
