Montessori School, maybe?

So mommies, I didn't think I'd ever be asking this question but it seems as though the time has come. Sky is so sweet, kind, and very very smart but I can tell staying at home is starting to affect her mood. I can only do so much teaching her, loving her, taking her out and attending to her in a single day before we both start to go nuts. I've started to look into Montessori chools in Tampa. Does anyone have some advice or experience with this type of program. I love her so and just want the best for her. She'll be 3 in April and I think even a half day would offer a little more to her world. Does anyone have a toddler in one now? Thanks

I have read up on them. I wanted my little boy to go to one so bad (he just turned 3 at the beginning of the month). He's so smart, unfortunately they can be pricey and I don't think we can afford to send him to one, although I am trying to find a way and haven't quite ruled it out yet. We have gone to look at a couple and they seem fantastic!

Basicially the method is to allow the child to learn the way they should learn, through play and discovery. It operates different subjects into your child's subject of interest. From what I've read the method of teaching is most beneficial from infancy to 5 or 6 years of age (although there are schools that go straight through until the end of high school). When they're young like that there brains are so wanting to learn and just soak up everything.

I say if you can afford it and you can get her in, do it. Just start looking into it now I don't know about your area but around here they usually have waiting lists. Good luck. I hope this helped even though I don't have any first hand experience.
