No, that''s not Montessori, it is just plain old lack of proper supervision. That can happen in a school of any philosophy if it isn't well run and staffed.
That never happens at DS's school, I observed for ages at the begin of DS's first year, b/c he was very anxious. If a student is upset, the teacher tries to comfort him/her. If the teacher is unable to comfort the student within a few minutes, the student gets one on one attention from the director. The director usually takes the student for a walk outside and talks with them. If the student really just can't calm down, then they call mom and suggest trying again tomorrow.
Students are never left in wet clothing. There are always enough teachers available to take a student inside immediately to use the potty or get changed during recess.
I would find a new school, if you trust her description. If your in any doubt about the accuracy at all (mommies get separation anxiety too sometimes,) then you might want to observe yourself before you decide.
