Hi
I am looking to enroll my girl in preschool or Montessori startin this sept.. she will be 3 in October. Can anyone recommend a good preschool/ Montessori in Swords?? Also she is used to being at home with just me I´m concerned that she´ll get lost in a big class any opinions which is best for a little one who´s been a bit socially isolated to ease her in? Playschool or Montessori?? And wat exactly is the difference in the two?
Thanks

As a parent mine went playschool (more emphasis on Play and free play). As childminder I see alot parents pushing for Montessori, more structured learning. My eldest, although 4 at time attended a week summer camp prior to three days paid playschool (prior ecce) as I was working fulltime (not childminding) and needed to be adjusted to the environment. Do you go any Parent/Toddler Groups, freedom to mingle but safety of you being there.
