Just plugging in my .02 here as a Montessori teacher (primary and elementary trained)!

To see a typical day, as it should be, go to: a typical day in the children's house

laralou- What you said about your son talking and being sent to the office is definitely *not* Montessori. The children are allowed to talk. The only restriction would be if they were bothering someone (talking excessively loudly, talking to someone who was busy and had already asked him to "please let me work - we can talk when I am through, etc.), basically if he was being disrespectful of his classmates. But, regular talking is not prohibited!

Satori - most children do well in a Montessori environment, but it sounds like your child would thrive there.

Hope this is somewhat helpful.
