Separation anxiety is a normal behavior and it is part of the development during the first years of life. It is normal for children to feel this way, to cry and be distressed to the new changes as they are separated from you.

What is Montessori? I hear that kids choose their own work, what does that look like? Isn't it dangerous to allow them to walk alone in the hallways? How will my Kindergartner be able to learn if he is in the same room as a three year old? Do they have to be potty trained to be in preschool?
