Any opinions on Montessori\'s (U.S.)
I am looking for opinions on a Montessori curriculum opposed to public schools?
I am trying to enroll my 3yo PA DD in a Montessori for the 2002-2003 school year (only 20 openings). The reasons I liked the school are based on her safety, but I want to make a good decision for her education too. I am thinking of sending her to the school through her elementary years.
The reasons I like the school are: they are located between my house and the hospital (1.5 miles); there is one teacher and 2 assistants for a class of 30 children; there is a "no sugar" policy (even on b-days!); they already have a child with PA & have a no-peanut policy and I met the director and teachers at an open house and felt comfortable with all of them.
