Our son M started at Stepping Stones Academy just under a year ago...he was 1 and 1/2 and had never been away from me (Mom). I was so worried and nervous about how he was going to do at daycare, especially because he was a really picky eater and not a big sleeper...I cannot say enough how WONDERFUL and AMAZING his teachers, Ms. Anca and Ms. Christie are. They were so loving and supportive with M and with us. The first couple of weeks, I would call during my work breaks to check up on M, and Ms. Anca would be so incredibly sweet and patient with me. She took the time to listen to my concerns, to be encouraging and supportive when I called and when I picked M up after work. She has a bubbly personality, always smiling and singing to and with the children--they love it and love her! Ms. Anca and Ms. Christie gave M the extra attention and care he initially needed to adjust to his new surroundings and friends, and to being away from me. I could tell, from day one, that taking care of the children is not just a job to them. I don't know how we would have handled M's transition to daycare without them! M adores them both (and we do too) and will always have a special bond with them. We could not be more grateful.
M now moved up to a different class, he loves his new teachers Ms. Cece and Ms. Rosa, and Ms. Renee (who watches him early in the morning)! He loves Stepping Stones so much that all he wants to wear everyday is his blue Stepping Stones Academy T-shirt (M calls it "Ms. Cece's shirt"). I am so thankful that we found Stepping Stones Academy. Thanks to the amazing teachers, leadership (Ms. Kiran!) and staff, M is eating well, sleeping well, thriving, and growing into a happy, happy little boy. Again, THANK YOU!
