Hi!<br><br>
Yesterday I went for a tour at a co-op preschool in my city where the parents go to school with the children, its Montessori type of learning and teaching style. Everything sounds good to me so far.<br><br>
Especially the going "with" my girls there. Me being with them all of the time is so important to me and our family. I wanted to look into it because I feel like they don't have enough friends and everyone in my family is hounding me for "socialization."<br><br>
If nothing else, the school will be great for that. They seem to have a lot of activities and developmental stations for children to play at, at their leisure and it seems to be child focused.<br><br>
I'm very into natural parenting, attachment parenting, we co-sleep, extended breastfeeding, and have a very child centered house.<br><br>
I'm posting to see what others here have experienced with Montessori style schools? My children will be in a toddler and preschool group. This is their first year of any type of school.<br><br>
The tuition is incredibly affordable, only $1500 total for both of my girls per semester. I guess I'm just looking for others experience here on this forum, with Monetessori style schools. I'm so scared to commit to something without knowing about it as much as possible. I have read a lot, but never "been" to a school other than our walk through yesterday. I had planned on homeschooling my children, but then heard about this and it seems fun. I don't have many friends in our area that parent the same style as me either, so I think i'm also looking for like minded mothers as well.<br><br>
They don't have a problem with our choice of not vaccinating our children, and she told me that she didn't vaccinate her kids either. Thats rare in my area, i've never met anyone else who didn't. I want to do this for the right reasons though, not because I want like minded friends, but because its right for my girls.<br><br>
Thanks for your insight.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
