The Knoxville Montessori School is a nonprofit private school that provides high-quality Montessori education for children from 3 years old through 5th grade. Founded in 1966, KMS is widely recognized for its nurturing environment, high academic standards, experienced teaching staff, and diverse student body.
Following the Montessori method, KMS students work at their own pace, individually and in small groups, using a variety of hands-on materials that build critical physical and intellectual skills and help them move naturally into more advanced academic work
This process encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning, and it nurtures independence, curiosity, creativity, and teamwork skills – all of which are critical for future success in our rapidly changing 21st-century world.
For more information and to find out if Montessori education would be a good fit for your child, contact Operations Director Charlie Biggs at 865-525-6042.

Our in-person curriculum includes all of the core classes designed according to your learner’s individual level (math, science, reading, social studies, Bible). Online classes expand upon these as learners can choose which classes they enjoy taking or need more practice with. Extracurricular online courses could include music, art, foreign language, ASL, political science, apologetics and more. Can’t join us in person? Sign up for à la carte online classes – you can even join the school in semester long live classes.

Mission Statement: To provide a safe and fun space for learners to get a well rounded Christ centered education.
Who We Are: A Christian hybrid teaching platform that includes a variety of classes both in-person and online. While the world is teaching our children that genders are subjective, science disproves God’s existence and we need to separate God from schools – we will teach children how to defend their beliefs, that science can coincide with God’s beautiful creation and be able to stand firm in their faith backed by logic, facts and science. As more learners are transferring to online education, there is a lack of Christian courses.
We’ve got you covered! We provide a large variety of engaging core classes including math, reading, science, social studies, history, government and are adding new courses all the time. We foster a strong belief in independence therefore providing many life skill courses including homesteading, financial independence, farming and entrepreneurship. Often children that are brought up in Christian homes still can turn away from God later in life, that is why we offer apologetics courses to build a strong and unshakable foundation.
Statement of Faith: We do not have an official statement of faith as we accept all Christian denominations.
Our classes are family focused and are designed to help families prepare for the birth of their new little one, whether you are expecting your first child or your 5th!

Knoxville Moms, I have a gift for you!
Hey y’all, my name is Kendall Shields and I am a senior student at The University of Tennessee. Throughout my 4 years at UT, I have been lucky enough to have been mentored by some amazing women in the Knoxville area, many of whom have had young children. Therefore, I have gotten to see first-hand, how hard it can be to schedule those girlfriend lunch-dates, coffee chats, women’s bible studies, or even just a few hours alone to get some work done with those cute little distractions by your side.
I would love nothing more than to lift this burden for you, Mom! I am offering my childcare services, free of charge, in order to open up space for those life-giving conversations and restful reunions you deserve.
A little bit about me!
- I am from Austin, TX, and may still have a slight allegiance to my longhorns (oops!)
- I just finished up my swimming career at UTK, so let me know if your kiddos could use some swimming lessons this spring!
- I have many years of experience in KIDS ministry at my local churches and have spent countless hours babysitting some dear family and friends.
- I am graduating in May with a degree in Management and Data Analytics, and will be getting married in October!
If you are interested, the best way to reach me is either via text or email. I am available between 11am and 2pm on weekdays and on weekends. I look forward to introducing myself more formally as well as meeting your little ones soon :).

My name is Karen Vacaliuc, and I am a birth doula, connecting families through birth. I offer doula services in the Anderson, Knox, Morgan, and Roane Counties. I am passionate about mothers, babies, and family. I also have a deep desire to empower women through positive experiences of pregnancy, labor, and childbirth.
I know that the support I can give to mothers-to-be and their partners, during pregnancy and childbirth, can help make their experience less stressful, more informed, more comfortable, and more satisfying. One quote that I have read before stays with me. “The motherhood ideal is impossible to achieve because it ignores reality. Babies don’t need super mothers, they just need good mothers.” (author unknown) In working together with families, I hope to create a more healthy and satisfying approach to family dynamics in its early stages.
My name is Jennifer. I am a sophomore at UTK studying Speech Pathology. I volunteer at many organizations around Knoxville (Knox County Schools, The Cross, UT). I have experience with kids from 9 months to 14. Please send me an email if you have any questions!
I am a CAPPA certified postpartum doula and Overnight postpartum care is my passion. I believe it is the most needed area of postpartum support to be able to set a family up for success. I provide the extra set of hands, emotional support, and expertise during the night that you and your baby need. I am there to encourage you and be the educated baby whisperer when you feel you have no one else to call during those middle of the night parenting hours. I help create a comfortable, safe sleep environment for both your family and your baby so everyone gets the rest they need.
