I would spend some time in the schools you are interested in. I'm a firm believer in Montessori, I went to one when I was young before transitioning to main****** schooling. However I went to our nearest one when I was looking for a kindy for DS1 and I didn't like their interpretation or believe the way they ran their school would have suited him. At the end of the day all schools of whatever philosophy have a "personality" and you need to decide what's the best fit for your child.
