Does anyone have any links to information regarding the overall philosophies of Montessori or Waldorf? Or comparing the two? Thanks.

Especially the one above. Both systems can be wonderful. Every parent has to decide what is best for their child and family. No one system or school suits every family. I wish public schools would get that! I never realized that Montessori can also have a spiritual side.
