Stepping Stone School parents can be confident in the quality of the educational experience their child receives, thanks to our exclusive and rigorous VerifiED™ Quality Assurance Program. Developed by our own expert team of Quality Specialists, the program maintains, evaluates and assures the highest standards for health, safety and curriculum in every school, every day.
Our Quality Assurance Team assesses more than 1,000 items within each school in order to uphold the highest standards for your child every day. The program is designed to not only evaluate the learning, customer service and environment we’re providing for our students and families but to continually improve our methods and advance our standards.
A sampling of criteria examined at Stepping Stone Schools:
HEALTH & SAFETY – Ensuring the health and safety of all areas of sanitation, classroom equipment, structural maintenance, playground equipment, building and playground security, classroom cleanliness and protection from hazards.
CURRICULUM – Ensuring our teachers are clearly understanding and incorporating their extensive training into their classrooms, by consistently changing their environment to meet the needs of each individual child and to reflect their curriculum.
ENVIRONMENT – Ensuring a full spectrum of factors is contributing to a highly functional classroom environment, including encouragement of language development, exposure to multiple cultures, overall structure, and developmental centers and materials that foster both independent learning and group socialization.
OPERATIONS – Ensuring our administrators are maintaining high-quality childcare through their leadership, training, accountability, relationship-building and operational responsibilities.
It’s this consistent attention to detail that serves as the cornerstone of our unrivaled reputation and helps make Stepping Stone School the best.
