Stepping Stones is a great Montessori environment where our daughter thrives. She loves her teachers and most of the students, and learns how to solve conflicts with her peers. She is learning an amazing amount of things for a child her age, and also learning life skills.
Stepping Stones is a great community of teachers, staff, and parents who love to help the children learn and grow. The education is outstanding and the knowledge they have about each individual child's needs and learning methods is incredible. It is such a peaceful environment to help nurture and grow in, and it is amazing to see the good mannered, intelligent children produced by this environment. We tried this school with a lot of reservations, and are staying with extreme gratitude towards all of the staff.
My daughter attends this school -- her mind soars and engages in all dimensions of life. Her teachers know her as an individual and help her to grow as a complete and wonderful little person. She is thriving and becoming the kind of learner we need in this world.
Our school has a great commitment to the Montessori philosophy. Our daughter has participated in this school from primary through the elder years and now all the way through elementary. She has really grown each year, and we think Stepping Stones has been a big part of this. We love the commitment and quality of the teaching staff and the strong community feel of the school. This year, we especially enjoyed participating in the Montessori Model UN experience with the trip to NYC and actually holding the final session at the UN itself!
My children have been a part of the toddler, primary, and elementary classrooms, each offering a nurturing and developmentally supportive environment. My children are developing a wonderful love of learning in the Montessori classes. When we started in the toddler and primary programs, I did not anticipate keeping my kids in Montessori for the elementary level. After a lot of deliberation, we decided the Montessori experience was the best placement. Two years later, I know we made the best choice! We are thoroughly pleased with the teachers and support staff.
Stepping Stones Montessori School has been a perfect fit for our family. We have both of our children (2 and 5) attending and have been extremely impressed with the quality of instruction, learning, and mentoring throughout our time here. We look forward to seeing our children grow, learn and become who they are at Stepping Stones!
Stepping Stones focuses on the educational development of the child through the Montessori method. Our daughter has grown from primary to elementary. She loves going to school and completes challenging assignments. Staff look out for the child's best interest and guide students to their maximimum potential. We highly recommend Stepping Stones to any parent selecting a school. It is a wonderful community and its curriculum diverse and is the best in the area.
Stepping Stones has been a great school for our daughter. She has attended there since she was 3, and will graduate soon as a 6th grader. We are sad to see her go. She has blossomed into a wonderful young person in part from the great learning and growth environment that this school provides.
Stepping Stones is a child-centered place of education, which allows each child to discover their own interests and develop confidence and curiosity about the world around them. Great teachers, great learning environment, wonderful head of school, I highly recommend Stepping Stones Montessori in East Lansing.
