We homeschool our children, but right now they are still very young- the oldest just turned 4. I plan to homeschool for as long as possible.

I do have a place in my heart for both public school and private though, as before I had children I taught/ worked in both.

No worries, that's what I voted! I was just more specific in my reply.

I thought Waldorf was like Private school, kind of like Montessori, with different philosophies.

SInce we will have to pay for it, we classify it as a private school. I think her comment was too unschooling though because its kind of a 'sect' so to say similar to homeschooling.

Well the kids will be going to Montessori for the first couple years then will move to Catholic school.

In Ontario we have the Catholic school board which is separate from the Public school but not "private" you don't have to pay for it.

Then we also have "Private" very expensive schools that are both religious and non.


The kids will go to Catholic separate school after Montessori.

I guess technically I should've voted private at the moment since our oldest goes to a private Christian preschool and will continue to do so next year. Eventually for K she'll go public....maybe even to the same PS I went to.
