I am very interested in Montessori schools and agree with alot of their teaching techniques and alot of Maria Montessori's ideas. The one thing I have a problem with, is children being discouraged from "imagination" and pretend. This is mentioned in alot of literature regarding Montessori principles. My question is, do you recognize this in present day Montessori classrooms? How do you feel about it? What else can you tell me about your experiences with a Montessori? Thanks so much!Answer Question

My son loved the Montessori program. He is highly gifted and it fostered his freedom too. However, not every Montessori is a true Montessori. Some of them use the name to attract people, but do not practice the principles. Here is a link that can help you identify a legitimate program.
