When is it best to consider Montessori for my child?
Dr. Montessori encouraged parents to consider education as an aid to life from birth. Montessori's four specific educative environments are: Toddlers up to 2.5 years, Casa classrooms (2.5 to 6+ years), Elementary (ages 6+ to 12), and Adolescent environments (teens up to 18 years). Since the environments support one another it is highly recommended that children begin with Montessori no later than 4 years of age, and stay with each program for at least 3 years.

I would like to send my son to a private High School, I have time to think about that since he is just 7 months old. But I like to plan in advance. I am originally from Montreal, and I'm fluent in French. I would like my son so speak French as well. I was considering sending him to French middle school then English HS, but I'm worried he would fall behind other kids in English. I'd like more information on bilingual schools if available.
