I was surprised to read the previous two reviews, as our experience at Stepping Stone XIV has been almost entirely positive. We have two daughters, four and one, and our oldest has been at SS XIV since she was 12 months old. Her teacher, Miss Bill, is now my younger daughter's teacher, and we have always felt that our girls were safe and in good hands.\r
The last two teachers that my oldest daughter had, Miss Pam and Miss Debbie, have been at the school since we first enrolled there, and they are two of the finest people we've ever met. They have positive attitudes, a genuine warmth toward the children, and incredible rapport with both kids and parents. Both of our daughters are actively engaged in learning, and the oldest is definitely getting good preparation for school. We looked at a lot of child care options when we first became parents, and Stepping Stone was the only place that we felt comfortable enrolling our children.\r
I'm sure that every business goes through cycles, and there have been times when we've seen teachers come and go, but overall, we still feel like Stepping Stone is the best. We love the curriculum, we love the staff that ALWAYS greets our daughters by name, and we love the facility. I'm sure the previous reviewers' experiences are NOT the norm at Stepping Stone. Our concerns have always been promptly resolved by the staff. I hope that the previous reviews won't prevent prospective parents from going and checking out the school for themselves. In our book, Stepping Stone is still Number One!
Pros: Superior Staff, Warm Atmosphere, Great Learning Environment
