We may be relocating to the midwest region (we're currently in NJ) and so I'm starting to do some preliminary scouting for Montessori schools. Our new location is not at all set; we're pretty flexible, and it may depend on where we can find the best school.
I'd love an Erkinder program, though an elementary (at least thru 8th) would be okay; adolescent (thru 12th grade) would be better; erkinder would be ideal!!
If you live in the Midwest (we could possibly go as far West as Vegas or as far South as Texas): Kansas, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska... please chime in! Do your kids attend Erkinder or another elementary/adolescent Montessori? Are you near by or in a more "crunchy" community?
I'm just in very preliminary research mode here, but kids are so happy currently; we want to make sure any transition is smooth, and for ourselves, we'd very much love to move to a place that reflects more of our natural parenting ideals... so crunchy communities are a plus!
Thanks so much. <3
