My 2 boys love Step By Step. The teachers and administration demonstrate Gods love everyday through the way they love and care for my children. My 5 year old preschooler is reading (by phonics and sounding out words), counting past 100, doing addition and subtraction problems, counting by 5's and 10's, knows the pledge, the Lord's prayer, scripture, and so much more. But most of all, he loves learning and the environment that the school provides. My 2 year old, is potty trained, prays before meals, can count to 15, loves to sing with his teacher, and is learning how to swim in the school's Red Cross swimming lesson program. Both of my children have a relationship with GOD for themselves because of the daily faith based curriculum and loving teachers at this school!
My kids went here and while I can agree that hours are good for working parents, my children have never been so belittled by such a group of narrow-minded "educators" as at this place. If you want your child sheltered and learning material so irrealivant to everyday life, send em here. It all begins at the top- the principal is extremely narrow-minded and when challenged by knowledgable parents, she proclaims the school is a "step by step" learning process. What it is- a facility which children have an extremely advanced, complicated and disorganized curriculum placed in front of them setting them up for failure, thus leading to undue stress on children and recommended "hold-backs" of kids not learning or achieving up their lofty standards. Best move, getting my kids out of this school
Step By Step has been a huge blessing for our family. You can tell the curriculum was planned to developmentally progress children from child-care through 8th grade. We like that it's a small school in a larger city and everyone is looking out for your child.
Being a public school teacher, I knew my daughter would go to private school. Step by Step was the answer. The hours are great for working parents, and the staff is very loving. They combine a good balance of rigorous academics and fun! I researched the curriculum and when compared to public school, she was 1.5 years ahead! It is a small school, which means your child will get that one-on-one attention when they struggle. Although she is just in kindergarten now, I anticipate keeping her there through 8th grade!
SBS is the most woderful experience we could ever have! They are like a great big family that loves and cares for each other. The administration is very profesional and the teachers are very good and loving with the kids. The expectations are set high and they make sure the kids reach them. My kid have a blast at the same time he is learning. The classes are small so the teachers have more time to work one on one with the kids. Every single penny you pay to this school is worth it!
Step By Step is the best thing that ever happened to our family! The whole facility from the ground up is filled with love, care and concern for the well being of your child. It is the only place I have ever taken my 3 girls and as long as they need a school or daycare, Step by Step is where they will be.
SBS came highly recommended, however, was very disappointing. The faculty, although they have been there for many years, can not think out of the box. They can not resolve problems or issues with students and parents. Their solution is to remove the child from the school! Wow! One would think that if your going to pay that much money for your child's education, they would have better solutions! The teachers belittle the children and degrade them. They also strip away your child's identity of who they are and what makes them who they are! I'm sorry I ever submitted my child to this type of environment!!!
