Wow! Stillwater School does look amazing! We're in South Portland and wishing we had more options for Montessori schools, too. When a mother actually stops and considers a 40 minute drive to school, we know we need more options! I am considering, seriously considering homeschooling next fall for my daughter. She is currently enrolled in a private, pricey Montessori school but I don't think we can afford to do it next year at twice the price we PREpaid for this year.
The new charter school law that was recently passed has got the wheels in my head spinning. If we got a nice group of mothers and teachers promoting and presenting the Montessori method as state funded charter school, imagine how wonderful! Is anyone as interested in this as I am? I don't want to let this opportunity pass us by, but I don't know the first thing and I am unqualified to do this stuff. I do believe there would be so much interest in Maine for a Montessori charter school...
I think I am going to be brave and go to the meeting for charter school discussion being held tonight in Portland. I would love some support, moms!
mainemommy & interestedinhome, I would also be sincerely interested in some kind of homeschooling meet up once or twice a week to exchange ideas and get the children together. We can do it!
