St. Philip Learning Center is an affordable Catholic Montessori preschool and Homeschool Enrichment program located in the heart of downtown Franklin. While our catechesis lessons embrace the teachings of the Catholic Church, we warmly welcome all children. St. Philip Learning Center is a ministry of St. Philip Catholic Church, using the Montessori materials and methods to educate children. The children learn in a prepared environment, freely choosing their work while being guided by Montessori trained teachers.
