    Wow. How wonderful to find what sounds very progressive. My choices have been limited here. There is Steiner (playgroup to class 12), Montessori (primary), the usual main****** schools (public, private catholic or Anglican etc...) and one independent primary school - that I wasn't impressed with.

    😂😂😂 I just came back to ask why a cheese school is suitable... I mean, I love cheese, but I couldn't imagine a passion so deep that one would send a preschooler to learn how to make it.

    Now to google reggio.

    It's funny DS school does the IB and it's just dawned on me how it would fit the Montessori style ( DS is only in kindy and they also start in year 1so It's all new to me!)

    I'm not working at the moment (we just moved interstate), so can't justify the cost of putting him in child care for the educational benefits. And while I'm primary trained, I'll confess to preferring to teach the older kids, and the littlies are completely different! I need ideas to help him learn and discover, and I had heard, clearly very basically, that Montessori allows that. I think I need to do some research. I've already started searching Pinterest for ideas.

    Cheese is also an important philosophy.

    I'm learning a lot about alternative methods here! It's great.

    Montessori, IB are both based on forms of using inquiry learning for kids to explore the real world, investigate and basically become independent learners.
