Who We Are
Montessori Center of Jackson (MCOJ) is a private, non-profit education center dedicated to educating young children in the Montessori philosophy. For 30 years, we have successfully utilized Dr. Maria Montessori's educational approach for children. By fostering the development of the whole child, we provide students “freedom within limits” to learn in ways that tailor to his or her unique learning styles. Our school is affiliated with the International Montessori Council (IMC), and our staff consists of Montessori and Early Childhood professionals. MCOJ is also an approved school under the Tennessee Department of Education.
Education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing for school, but for life.
