I'm trying to make a decision between preschool and montessori for my child. He's only 1 but would like to enroll him in a half day program when he is 2. I hear good things about montessori schools but am wondering if it really is better than preschool or are they different but equal. Really what is the difference between the 2? Any advise and suggestion would be good.
