Since this is my very first MDC post,
I am not sure whether this is the best place for my query, or if it should go to the CA/NV tribal area (and I'm not sure if x-posting is a no-no. Sorry if I'm in the wrong forum!
I am wondering if anyone here has personal experience (positive or negative or mixed) with any of the Sacramento (CA) area Waldorf or Montessori schools?
My husband and I are starting to think about pre-school programs for our son, and are attracted to aspects of both of these (very different! :smile) educational philosophies. What we really want to know, though, is how those philosophies are put into action at the various schools (esp. pre-school and elementary) in the area. Of course, we will be visiting many schools, but wanted to talk to some parents with experience. (I searched through old forums and didn't see any specific comments about this area's schools.)
If you (or someone you know) has had experience with any of the area schools (Camellia Waldorf, Sac Waldorf, Sac Montessori, McKinley Montessori, etc.), do you mind either a) sharing your perspective here in the forum or b)sending me a PM so that I can ask you a bit about your perspective?
