Re: Montessori

I would recommend Montessori. We sent our daughter there the day after turning 3 (for 5 mornings a week), by the end of one term, she could identify all the countries of the world, spell simple words, identify a variety of obscure animals and socialise with multiple age groups. The Montessori we sent her to also placed a huge emphasis on respect and courtesy too. With great regret (due to finances and locality) we changed schools 18 months later and were disappointed with expectations at a "regular" kindergarten. Since then she has been accelerated and another school change and is doing really well. Above average in schooling and socially as well. Montessori is a great choice, for long term but especially for early learning, as very few schools accommodate that for a gifted child ... they think they will be satisfied with play doh and sand pits.

Re: Montessori

Then again, if you want to broaden your gifted child beyond the scope of a single area, you would be wise to go with the Steiner/Waldorf system which encourages a broad 'encultureation', to develop empathy and social skills as well as scoring extremely well on academic performance ( contrary to some of the myths out there! Do some of your own research).
