There's a school near our home and I'm going to attend an open house to observe the classrooms but they only go up to grade 6 and I'm wondering if there might be any problem when she has to transfer to a non-montessori high school. She'll be entering 3rd grade next fall if I choose this school.Answer Question
Cons: My experiences are that it is a bit more costly than regular preschool. Pros: The kids learn soooo much and are independent. My daughter know the continents by age 4, and her letter sounds too. She just loved school. I still feel badly that my son is not in a program, but we moved and I did not like the ones that are around us. I do love his current school, but it is less academic based. You also have to consider each child's needs. I would say the program is academic based, but the children find everything fun. If your child was not ready he/she may not like the structure. Mine did. I love the Montessori philosophy, as a teacher too. Google Maria Montessori. Good luck!!!
