Montessori trained, loving teachers. Montessori Instruction and Curriculum which incorporates Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori based Catholic Religious Education program adopted by the Diocese of Nashville and currently in use by the 3-12 year old students at St. Philip Church. A nurturing, hands-on environment for the children of our community to spend time learning and growing in their faith.

Students are in multi-age classes with children ages 3 – 6, 6 – 9, 9 – 12. This allows the older children to model skills and behavior, and the younger children to learn from the older students. This also provides children the ability to work at their level, regardless of age.
