I was hoping to send our daughter to Montessori for preschool, but then I discovered the tuition is just eversoslightly less than Med school! No joke.

For a 3 year old.

Seriously!

Anyhow, I was hoping to find something a LOT less expensive and stuffy (ie: uniforms - wtf?)

Do any of you here know of a public school in Toronto that offers Montessori programs, or a more down to earth (financially and socially) Montessori preschool?

ANy help would be appreciated.

My dd went to a nice one just on the border of Scarborough/Pickering. It was called the Montessori Learning Centre. They were diverse, both in staff and the kids that attended, and the school was comfortably shabby. There was quite a bit of economic diversity. The program was really good, the kids were treated well and with respect, and the ratios were low.

I have only ever used Blaisdale montessori and we didn't like it so much.
Is homeschool an option for you
I find Montessori really overpriced in the GTA and the programs just sort of eh.

Toronto has a rocking Waldorf school however if your near it.. I would definately check it out!

Blaisdale is one of the options we're looking at for our son - if you don't mind saying, what was it about it that turned you off? Thanks

There is a Montessori teacher's discussion forum at teachers.net that has ongoing threads about M schools in and around Toronto with alot of specific information from different parents' perspectives. Under "Chatboards" select "Interest Groups". The M subforum is there.
