I am considering sending my dd's to a school that uses this curriculum, even though it is a little too pushy for my taste, jsut because the public schools here are very far below standard. Sorry for going on and on.
Yeah, this is kind of the situation here. I don't want dds in the public schools here where I live now. I'm not thrilled about this curriculum, but I guess for pre-school it is okay. Even though I'm a former teacher, homeschooling is not right for us, sooo . .. our choices are kind of limited.
I like Montessori but it is SUPER expensive - like $550 a month and they don't take part time students. I don't want to send dd full time just yet, but I DO want her to go somewhere part time.
Plus, to think about Montessori for two girls is just . . . .
: $1,100 per month!
