Hi there, I currently have my 4 1/2 yr old son in his second year ( full day) of Montessori and am torn on whether to keep him here or move him to public kindergarten. I can't put my finger quite on it... is he happy in this environment or not....and would he do just as well in public kindergarten. Academically he is doing well & mostly works well on his own. When he has behavior issues it is mostly because he wants to play and be more social/interactive. We are concerned that largely this is a result from the Montessori classroom environment /education being overly sedate & controlled. HOw important is it to complete the 3rd year cycle to cement the skills & learning he has already begun? Would he get this just as well in a 1/2 day Montessori class or in public school? Thanks for your valued opinions!
