Dear Ashley:

I like what others have said about control of your environment. I would
add…if you are looking for a fun, amazing form of education, research and
consider Montessori schools. I am currently getting a Master’s in
Montessori education, and am blown away by the philosophy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me off list.

Best regards,
