Hello! We are at a Montessori family looking for a Montessori friendly school in the southside Indianapolis area. I am open to considering public, Montessori'like schools and am having trouble figuring things out. Does anyone have any good expieriences to share?

I don't know anything about the area where you live. I would visit the schools in your area and see how you feel about them. Good questions to ask are:

Is your school accredited by AMI or AMS?

How long have the teachers and assistants been working here? Are they all AMI or AMS graduates?

Do you have mixed ages 3 - 6 in one class? (The answer here should be yes.)

What is the teacher child ratio? (An AMI school will have a higher ratio. Don't let this scare you off. It actually works very well. An AMS school will have a slightly lower ratio but still higher than a traditional preschool.)

If it is possible you should observe the classes in session so you can get a feel for how the teachers work with the children and if you think that would be a match for your child.

Good luck!
