    Montessori or traditional schooling

    We are in the process of deciding on our 2 yr olds education. We are looking at Woodlands group of schools. The pokfulam panda school goes by traditional teaching methods and the midlevels one is a montessori. We cant seem to decide which one to go for. Any opinions would be great! thanks

    I didn't know about Panda school, but I heard the teacher turn-over is so high. How about IMS .. if you are deciding the Pokfulam school.

    Will u consider Montessori playgroup ?

    Personally I think Montessori education is overrated and I also think it's just really "popular" right now. I went to a Montessori high school and my husband did Montessori Elementary but honestly I don't think it really matters for this age group, 2-5 years old. I would just go to the school / location you feel best about it, regardless of the teaching method.

    BTW, my friend has her son at Woodlands (Scenic Villas; renovated location) at Pokfulam and is very happy with it.
