About Us

We believe that children are inherently good.

At Midtown Montessori, located in the beautiful Evergreen Historic District of Midtown Memphis, we honor the fact that children require that we take our task of creating and maintaining an environment where this good can manifest very seriously. With teachers holding internationally recognized accreditation through the Association Montessori International (AMI) Midtown Montessori aids in the development of children in a way that is the product of the child's own intellectual, emotional and spiritual work.

Our greatest goal is that the children of our community go into the world knowing that we are all responsible for one another's welfare, for the stewardship of all that surrounds us and with the wisdom that we are each tasked with the important work of creating a world that is more peaceful than we found it.

Our Community's Mission

  • The Prepared Environment, Academic Excellence and Emotional Development: Through a carefully prepared environment, a multi-age classroom and a Montessori curriculum, we support children as they build both the intellectual and emotional skills needed to make meaningful contributions to society.
  • A Connected & Compassionate Community: Children experience well being, dignity and interconnectedness at Midtown Montessori. They are the center of a community that is connected, compassionate and collaborative in the support and development of one another's interest and development.
  • Freedom, Responsibility & Peace Education: A more peaceful world tomorrow rests upon the efforts we put forth today. At Midtown Montessori, we support children's natural inclinations toward kindness, friendship and justice. We offer the children opportunities to resolve conflicts peacefully with their peers, they grow in understanding as they observe the positive outcomes of the collaborative work of children and adults in their community.
