Hi there, at 3 and a half they would probably be well able for the 5 days but it really is a personal decision. I have 3 and a half years olds in my class at the moment & they are all full time, the part time children are mostly 2 and a half so they will be going full time in September (5mornings) The other thing to remember is that classes are generally only 3hrs so gives you a lot of time with them after or before class? I offer both full and part time, morning and afternoon classes so please feel free to look at my website - it might help your decision making looking at the curriculum & daily structure etc.

I was wondering is anyone could help me make a decision?

My child is just 3 years of age, and i want to enroll him in montassori for this September, he will be just over 3 and a half by then, my dilema is do I send him full time (5 days) or part-time (3days). There is not much difference in the price. I would like to have him at home for one day, but this is not possible, it is either 3days or 5days. I would be afraid that he would be missing out if I only sent him part-time. This is my first experience with preschool and would be obliged for any help from other parents who have been through this or from any montassori teachers. Thank you.
