When I started my two-year-old at Stepping Stone, I was feeling a bit skeptical. My oldest son had a bad experience in a childcare, so I was hesitant. My two-year-old was not flourishing in his private care and actually regressing socially and verbally. \r
Stepping Stone has really nurtured his growth in both of these areas! He is talking much better, and although he is still verbally behind, he is making up that gap through his teacher, Lisa, and with his peers. Lisa is very patient with him, teaching him how to speak correctly and really trying to understand his language. She has nurtured him socially and taught him how to play with his friends in a positive manner, where before, he would not play at all. \r
At his old school, he would cry when I dropped him off, and cry when I picked him up. Now, when we get in the car, his words are, ""I go see ""Isa"" (Lisa)!"" When I drop him off at school, he says, ""Hi, guys!"" and ""Bye, Mom!"" There are times I could almost cry he's so happy. When I pick him up, he tells me about his day, shows me his artwork, and tells me about his friends. I couldn't be happier. \r
I had the opportunity to go to a daycare that is cheaper next year, that would be at my workplace. I had to turn them down in fear that my child would not progress as he has at Stepping Stone. I absolutely adore the program they have at this school, and I just love Lisa. Thank you to Lisa and Stepping Stone for all you have done for my child.
