Montessori School

It's official, the paperwork is filed: Lillian will be attending Western Montessori starting March 1st. We really love her daycare, but over the past several months the kids her age began to go to pre-schools. It's gotten so that most of her same-age friends there are gone, and she's getting noticeably restless about going there with mostly younger toddlers.

In hindsight we probably should have gotten started on the process much earlier, but regardless we started the search for a pre-school last fall. By the beginning of this year we were getting pretty confident that Western Montessori was the one: Eric still has fond memories of his time at Montessori in Illinois, Western is just about the closest pre-school to our house, and our visits really sold us that it is the right place to be. Lillian had caught wind of our decision and has been talking about it non-stop for weeks.

No sooner had we finalized the start date than we caught wind that Western was having an open house this weekend. We had been confident in our decision before, but after turning Lillian loose on the facilities today, it was totally clear. She settled in like she had always been there, and had a great time inside and out.
