I don't have any questions, but if I do I'll come back. My kids have been in Montessori for 6 years now, and we love it.

Also, I am AMI trained, 0-3, and loved my training, as intense as it was.

I joined in 2005. I used to come here a lot when my kids were infants/toddlers. Now they are all middle-school/elementary aged... and I don't know that I can relate so much, and I'm busier, I guess.
