Our Mission & Vision
Mount Juliet Montessori Academy (MJM) employs Maria Montessori’s holistic approach to education to foster joy, intelligence, independence and self-confidence in children. With personal respect for each child and a sincere dedication to his or her potential, our AMS (American Montessori Society) certified teachers help establish a life-long love of learning and a sense of belonging in community. Love, leadership, practical life skills and academic growth are cornerstones of our school.
Our multi-age classrooms encourage leadership, cooperation, community and respect for different levels and stages of learning. MJM’s prepared environment allows the child’s natural curiosity and innate talents to blossom at his or her own pace, making learning through fun possible and achieving without fatigue a daily experience.
Freedom for parents to decide how much time their child spends in school, Spanish as part of the regular curriculum, child directed learning, and developing personal focus and problem solving are all important aspects of MJM.
To provide an environment that encourages and entices the child to become self motivated to exhibit their own greatest learning potential while under the guidance of trained Montessori teachers. MJM is dedicated to creating a community that instills peace, courtesy respect and a love for learning.
“We must support as much as possible the child’s desires for activity; not wait on him, but educate him to be independent.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori-
