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.
FALL 2021/SPRING 2022
In the fall, we will begin our studies with the universal needs of humanity: food, clothing, shelter, defense, transportation, medicine, arts, entertainment, government, and religion. We will then consider early civilizations in terms of how they organized themselves to meet the fundamental needs of all peoples.
In the spring we will continue to study civilizations, but there will be an emphasis on how humans have changed over time and the contributions different groups of people have made. Included in this study will be The History of Writing and The History of Mathematics.
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.
