Welcome Home

Located in the heart of Nashville, NIA House Montessori School is an independent, private Montessori school. With a commitment to being a socioeconomic and culturally diverse community, we provide children, from preschool to 4th grade, with an educational environment that encourages curiosity, exploration, and discovery as a means to achieve academic excellence.


Our Curriculum

The Montessori classroom environment is beautifully designed to entice the child and to meet the needs of the specific age range. Every Montessori learning material in the classroom is designed to support an aspect of child development. Marrying the child’s natural interests with readily available activities, provide the space for the child to develop to their greatest potential.




Our core staff possesses over 70 years of experience working with students of all ages including collegiate, high school, and primary education levels.
