We went on our first school visit today, to Montessori @ Home. It was just to see the facilities and to chat with the teachers so all the children had already left when we were there. Grace took a short while and then settled down to exploring some of the toys and equipment that they had, and in the end we spent quite a bit of time playing on the jungle gym outside while Donné chatted to the principle.
They have lovely equipment, a good approach and seem to be really warm. We will most likely send Grace there for her preschool years and I think she is really going to enjoy it lots.
Unfortunately the poor little girl has come down with a fever and snotty nose, so she is feeling a bit muck. She spent most of the afternoon lying on the couch watching Dora, looking pretty sad and sick. Hopefully she'll be feeling a bit better tomorrow.
