What are your thoughts on Montessori preschools? I've heard a lot about them but would like people opinions good or bad

I think you need to figure out if you want to do full day or half day. 5 days a week, 3 days, 2 days. You need to ask class size, student to teacher ratio, any assistants in the class. Are they accredited, some are some aren't. I would ask the questions on the phone and then visit with you child.

Just start visiting different preschools in your area, preferably w/ your child so you can see their reaction to the setting. These are some things to consider:
academic based or montessori style preschool?
all day or half day?
how many days a week?
class size?
outside playtime?
tuition rate/financial aid?

I had visited a couple of schools, but honestly, when I found the right one I just "knew".
