Hello everyone!
I just moved to the US from Europe with my husband and two children. I am glad I discovered this great parenting resource.
Let me tell you few things about me and my family. We lived in a small European town for 9 years, my kids are 7 and 6. They attended private Montessori school since the age of 3. However, we found that here private Montessori is too expensive for us ( husband works, I am SAHM). I tried lottery for charter and they're on the waiting list. I am also trained in Montessori. Right now kids go to a public school, and my son complains of starting to forget things he learned before and my daughter complains that she never plays in this school. I am looking into setting up some classroom-like environment at home, but since I am new here I don't know where to start ( I know of few websites that sell Montessori materials but are costly)
I would appreciate some ideas and comments.
Looking forward to connect with other moms here!
