Both of my kids started attending Stepping Stones in Kaka'ako after we moved to Honolulu. My daughter was in the Junior Kindergarten and my son is still attending the infant classroom. We absolutely love this pre-school. My daughter was in Ms. Anca's and Ms. Soo's class. They both made my daughter feel very welcome and she was able to get over her initial shyness and find friends very quickly. I was so grateful for that because my daughter never liked going to pre-school and used to cry at every drop off which was very frustrating. Now she wanted to go to school even on weekends! She also grew academically, overall we were very satisfied and our daughter was too. The infant class is the best in Honolulu in my opinion. It was recommended to us by a friend. My son attended since he was six months old. The teachers are really good and they asked us a lot of questions about our son and our expectations. They tailor the care to each child/parent needs in the infant program. They offered options for sleep training after I mentioned he was waking up a lot at night. I explained that I liked to pick him up and comfort my baby as much as possible and I noticed they were doing the same with my son. My son especially loves Ms. Christie, he follows her everywhere! That's how I know he is happy while we are at work.
