I myself enjoy the Montessori method, and when we are blessed with a child, Jesse and I plan on teaching our child with these methods.

As a former Montessori teacher of three-to-six year olds, I highly recommend your child be exposed to this awesome method of teaching.
Best for the basics, recently Montessori has expanded thru 12th grade levels with some success. I found children at the age level I was responsible for WANTED to learn. They were eager to absorb the knowledge of the lessons they learned from playing with the various teaching tools in the Montessori environment.
The Montessori class is controlled chaos, with everyone exploring whatever they like, and the teacher would rotate amongst the students sparking interest here and there, explaining as needed, and showing by example. Remarkably the kids kept themselves busy and their was little conflict.
I learned as much from them as they did from us.
