I am just curious. My son is showing a real interest in learning to read. Has knows his ABC since he turned 2, upper and lower case. He spends hours a day with books and wants to decipher the words. I am wondering how they go about fostering this love in a Montessori classroom. He is currently in the toddler program waiting for a space in Primary. We kept him back this fall since he has such a late birthday but we now think that was a mistake. As the brand new really young kids came in and made up so much of the class he became a bit bored, and sadly a bit of a bully. I am thinking I will start at home a bit. I don't think they do anything other than prereading in his room as the majority of the kids don't know their letters yet.
