The Cool Springs Montessori Homeschool Enrichment Program is an opportunity for homeschool students in the Nashville area, ages 1st Grade – 12 years, to engage in both collaborative and independent academic endeavors while following the Montessori method. In keeping with Maria Montessori’s Five Great Lessons, students learn about the world we live in and the interconnectedness of all living things – how the sciences, art, history, language, and geography are interrelated. Students develop a sense of wonder about our world and a respect for our global community and all of its members. Through our child-centered approach to learning, our program provides homeschool students (and their parents) with new, alternative ways to approach education as well as a fun, engaging environment where they can develop relationships with new friends.
For the 2019/2020 school year, our Homeschool Enrichment Students will meet two days per week to supplement their at-home learning with coursework from Dr. Montessori’s First Great Lesson: The Coming of the Universe and Earth. During the Fall 2019 session, we will explore Astronomy + Matter: a focus on stars, the solar system, asteroids, meteors, and the states of matter. During the Spring 2020 session, we will explore Cultural Geography: a study of Planet Earth, its place in the solar system, its atmosphere, weather, and seasons.
Art lessons are also provided every other week, courtesy of Wee Little Arts. Our classes are taught by our talented elementary educators, and we encourage students to engage in collaborative and independent academic endeavors while following the Montessori method.
This is a drop-off program, from 9am – 2pm on your choice of Monday/Tuesday or Wednesday/Thursday. Our Monday/Tuesday class is taught by Rhonda Moyers, and our Wednesday/Thursday class is taught by Jenny Bonham.
