KMS’s Primary (preschool and Kindergarten) classes have been validated by the Montessori Alliance of Tennessee (MAT) – a statewide network of Montessori schools, teachers and families supporting high-quality Montessori education.
Being validated means that an independent team of experienced Montessori educators have visited KMS, evaluated our Primary program, and confirmed that both of our Primary classes have Montessori-credentialed teachers and use a curriculum, materials and teaching strategies that are essential for a quality Montessori education.
As a result, parents of KMS Primary students can be confident that their children are attending a school that implements all of the important elements of a Montessori education.
Currently MAT only validates Primary classes, but plans are in the works to include Elementary classes as well. As soon as this happens, KMS will apply to have its Elementary class validated too.
