From One Parent to Another
NIA House - A Gift
“NIA house has been nothing but a gift for my family and I. Sonceria has been great in fostering the growth and development of my child on an educational level. Sonceria and her staff took the time out to understand my child and what works for her, while helping my husband and I continue to develop those skills and traits she possesses.”
A True Blessing
“This Montessori school has been a blessing for our children. My husband and I began learning about Montessori methods just after having our first child. We believed in it, prayed about it, and are committed to having our children educated in this way. With that said, NHMS is more than Montessori. Here, the method is enhanced by the beyond amazing teachers, their superb curriculum, vibrant culture of the school, and extracurricular programming.”
“Being able to take my child’s loving, yet dominate mothering spirit and transform it into strong leadership qualities has been nothing but great for my child’s self-esteem and worth. Not only do they provide support, but they hold every parent accountable in their child’s education. At the end of the day we are all family, NIA House family! Thank You for all do and will do for the families in Nashville.”
A Strong Foundation
“NIA House did a tremendous job of giving my daughter a strong educational foundation. I was deeply impressed with how the school made the learning process very applicable and hands-on. The teachers at NIA House made special efforts to partner with parents by making them aware of what their child was learning and ways that they can further build on those items at home.”
