My grandson has learned so much and l loves his teachers! It is self-directed learning and a wonderful kind, respectful environment. The children learn respect for other cultures, people. We looked at other schools before choosing Stepping Stones. A+

I fell in love with Montessori Stepping Stones the first moment I stepped inside. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the classrooms were gorgeous and filled with beautiful displays of Montessori materials. That was more than nine years ago and now I have two children that attend Montessori Stepping Stones. Through the authentic Montessori environment, both of them have been able to explore and develop a love of learning in a safe atmosphere of acceptance created by a warm and caring staff. As a result, they have been able to develop into the amazingly unique individuals that they are and are truly valued as people in the classroom community. The Montessori environment, which includes multi-age classrooms, provides a unique opportunity for children to develop life skills including leadership and working with others. It is also an environment which inspires exploration, creativity, and empathy. As a result, my ten year old daughter is an exceptionally well-rounded individual that displays a quiet confidence and has acquired an incredible knowledge of herself. As a parent, I developed such respect and affection for the school that I was inspired to pursue further education to become a certified Montessori teacher and started working at Montessori Stepping Stones over three years ago. My love of the Montessori philosophy and this school continues to grow daily.

I love that my daughter has a smile on her face going to school : ) She has been at MSS for over 6 years and has not once said she didn't want to go! She loves and respects her teachers and receives the same in return from them. I could not ask for a better school for her to spend her preschool, elementary, and middle school years at!! Thank you to all the wonderful teachers and friends we have made at MSS!

This has been the best experience for both of my boys-and they are completely different children with very different learning styles, needs, and interests. The music program is unparalleled in this county. My children love learning and are interested in every subject and I give the credit Montessori stepping stones (and the wonderful teachers)!

My daughter loves going to school at 3 1/2. We''ve been very impressed with what she learns and how the school engages her in the activities. I would recommend everyone give their child a chance at this school.

My son is a preschooler here. He loves school and has learned so much. The student/teacher ratio is wonderful and they really pay attention to each child. The teachers are so kind and caring. It has a wonderful music program. The kindergarten and elementary students all get to sing a solo during performances with no stage fright! Love this school!
