My son Jared began attending Stepping Stones Academy when he was almost 18 months old. In only a few short months his vocabulary has expanded greatly and communication skills improved so much. His teacher shared with me how he has learned to pass toys nicely to his friends, when in the beginning he used to throw them. I always feel peace of mind when I drop him off in the mornings because I know he is being given wonderful opportunities to develop and grow daily, with activities such as painting, water play, singing songs, reading stories, building things, exploring, drawing, climbing, sliding, and socializing with friends his age. The teachers and staff of Stepping Stones always greet us warmly and I can tell that they genuinely love and care for Jared and give him their full attention. Whenever I pick him up they are happy to give me updates on his progress. The classrooms, eating, and play areas are always so clean and organized. There are such a great variety of toys and stimulating activities for the young children. I truly enjoy receiving the daily Parent Post reports that detail my son's mood, amounts of food he ate, how long he napped, and how many diaper changes and bowel movements too! The Parent Post reports also detail the songs, books, and activities that my son participated in and there are always photos of him doing these things, as well as photos of him with his class. The photos always brightened my day at work and just continued to make me feel comforted that he was happy and well. Other things that I like about Stepping Stones Academy are the ease of tuition payment (you can set up a recurring credit card payment), the ease of parking for drop off and pickups (there is a designated street parking area in front of the school or validated parking in the garage), and the safety measures (there is a pass code protected door, as well as gates and doors inside that keep the children from roaming wherever they want). I am just so very happy that we chose Stepping Stones Academy and recommend it to anyone who wants to ensure the best and safest and happiest learning environment for their child!
