I was pretty much rejected over the phone because the lady said the child has to attend for 2 years to get the full benefit. Then she went on to say that most of their children go on to regular schools and do just fine......1)I dont understand how theres such thing as too late for a cold that is entering kindergarten or prekinder. This is not ideal but also no too late2) considering that Montessori methods should be taught i wouldnt expect a child to do just fine at other schools. I would expect them to be advanced and flourish above and beyond regular class room standards.Lastly if these folks want to reject kids perhaps theyre not really Montessori. I doubt Maria Montessori (the creator of the Montessori theory and methods) would have rejected any child.
