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.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
