I am new to this site. I currently live in Columbus, OH, and I am moving to Nashville in the next month. I have a 1.5 year old son who is currently in daycare. We are thinking about moving to the Inglewood area and I will be working south of town. Does anyone have any recommendations for daycares and school districts, or any information about homeschooling communties. Thank you!
I'm in south Nashville and there are some really good preschools in the area. We have an excellent Waldorf School (http://www.lindenwaldorf.org/) and quite a few Montessori and Reggio Emilia schools. It really depends on what you are looking for and how far you are willing to drive. :)
In Inglewood, you would be in the Metro Nashville School District (MNPS) which is sort of a mixed bag. There are some active homeschooling groups in the area, but I am not that familiar with any of them. You may want to consider joining up with the local API group for more information -- it's great group and pretty active: http://www.attachmentparenting.org/groups/webtn.php The East Nashville area (which includes Inglewood) is a really diverse and eclectic area. I think they have a MOMS Club (http://momsclubeast.blogspot.com/) and several Meetup groups that focus on families.
I'd be glad to tell you all I know. Feel free to send me a PM!
I just tried to send a PM and I wasn't able...
We have found a home and we are actually moving to Franklin. Is this close to where you are? The first thing we are going to need is a daycare. I sent some e-mails to a couple and haven't gotten any responses. Thank you for the earlier suggestions!
