We have been at Stepping Stones Montessori since September 2005. Our daughter has been so happy there. All the teachers are so good at figuring out what is best for each child and creating a supportive environment. We would not go anywhere else.

We chose Stepping Stones Montessori when we moved to East Lansing four years ago because it most clearly represented our values in education for our child. It is child-centered but not child-directed. Students engaged seriously in learning and in having fun. We have been delighted with the teachers, the school, and the school community.
