I was hoping for some feedback from other parents out there.
I have planned on homeschooling, and at this point still plan to, however, I am seriously thinking about opening up a school in the distant future, say 3 - 5 years.
I would like to open a Reggio school, and am in the very very very early stages, researching reading, etc... and there is nothing Reggio based (or Sudbury based,) in this area.
So anyway, I was hoping to see what everyone thinks about credentials. I do not have any teaching credentials. I am a work-from-home mom, former small business owner, current organic farm owner, and am in university part time.
I feel like taking ECE is a waste of resources (money) for me, but I was thinking that taking a Montessori course (or 4 of them for the different age groups,) would be very helpful.
I am extrememly confident I could open a school sucessfully, and have everything including teachers, in place, but my credentials are minimal.
So does anyone agree the Montessori will be helpful, or should I pursue my ECE just to have it on paper? (Not that I won't learn anything cause I am sure I will!)
