Montessori Schools?

Any mama's out there have (or used to have) kids in a Montessori school? Thoughts? Likes, dislikes? What ages are (were) your kids? DS is not even 2 but I think about these things. LOL.

  • I went to montessori from 3-8th grade...It was great! I have an ability to "think outside the box". It was very beneficial from when I began until about 5th grade, but once middle school hits, i think traditional school setting would best prepare a child for high school...based on my experience. I would love to send my son to one from preschool until about 4th-5th grade.

  • I was bored one day and started researching schools for my son (who is still very young) and I came across a website for a Montessori school and it looked really great. I love the concept so I'm interested to see the answers you get!

  • I have not yet had any personal experiences with the Montessori teaching technique, but I do plan to use it when I begin homeschooling.

  • That's about the ages I'm thinking about too.
