I have a 4 yr old who's been attending a Montessori pre-school for a year now. DS#2 is TOTALLY different from his brother. I know there is certain structure involved in every activity, but to a certain extent the kid has a lot of flexibility, which is a good thing, but sometimes I wonder...does *he* (my oldest) need a little bit more structure? Of course he does at home, but maybe in some ways it's contradictory for him (I hope not), but I'm not 100% convinced by the system. The reason he's staying there for another year is because he's REALLY-REALLY happy there. I keep wondering if it would be the right call for my second child. How to decide though? I might visit some other schools around, that way I can compare.
