About the PB&J Day School


About the Founders

Brooke Pate and Jennifer Walker, the founders and directors of the PB&J Day School, are sisters who share a love of working with children. As parents and certified elementary educators, they saw a need for a different kind of day school and so the idea of the PB&J Day School was born.

When Brooke's son was one, she taught three-year-olds for one year at a local MDO. After teaching at the MDO and touring other facilities, she didn't find any of the facilities to be suitable for her child. She met with Jenn and they started developing the ideas that formed the foundation of PB&J. Now, PB&J Day School has one of the highest enrollments among preschools, daycares and franchises in the area.  

Brooke Pate holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Belmont University in Health and Elementary Education. She has taught kindergarten and preschool.

Jennifer Walker holds a Masters of Science degree from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in Curriculum and Instruction. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Learning and Behavior, Elementary Education and Psychology. She has taught first, third and fourth grades, and was a Title I Coordinator for the Nashville Metro School System.


Our Philosophy

They believe education should be relevant, inspiring and fun! They strive to provide a fully inclusive environment that fulfills each child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs, appropriate to their age and stage of development.

Parents are always welcome during the day, and fully encouraged to become involved in their child’s school experience. Parents are invited to attend the Parent Socials. Through these year-'round socials, parents are encouraged to get to know one another and to form friendships. Parent-teacher conferences are held throughout the school year.

Brooke and Jenn strongly believe in parent-teacher communication, and practice this in many forms: personal conferences, email, phone, the website, newsletters, notes from school, bulletin boards, take-home folders, individualized reports of your child’s daily activities, and so much more.
