Robert Thompson, B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed. is the owner/principal of Willowglen Montessori School in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, established in 2000 and providing Montessori education for Toddlers through to grade 6. We are delighted to welcome Robert as a guest contributor to the NAMC web blog, and to share an article from his Principal’s Corner:
I am planning to enroll my son in a preschool program next September. Is part time or full time better? Ideally 2 full days a week would give me time to get my work done while he was at school but is this too much or too little for him?
As much as possible, NAMC’s web blog reflects the Montessori curriculum as provided in its teacher training programs. We realize and respect that Montessori schools are unique and may vary their schedules and offerings in accordance with the needs of their individual communities. We hope that our readers will find our articles useful and inspiring as a contribution to the global Montessori community. © the North American Montessori Center - originally posted in its entirety at Montessori Teacher Training on Friday, July 31, 2009.
