Our son started with Ms Lola & Ms. Priscilla few weeks ago. Most loving and caring teachers I have ever experience. My son goes in smiling and leaves the same. I have seen a huge improvement from learning development and behavior. I know our son is always in safe hands.

I rarely write reviews however I had such a great experience with the awesome administrators! Brooke and Bailey are so attentive and listen to everything and anything my husband and I have to say. From the very beginning at the tour, to the parent orientation and even the first day they gave us all the information we needed, answered all our questions, and followed up with us. It really put me at ease seeing how they run the school and manage the classrooms. This really made me feel comfortable leaving my daughter in their care. My daughter is always asking for Ms. Brooke and Ms. Bailey even at home!

My daughter has been at stepping stone in Lola and Priscilla's class for 7 months now and I couldn't be happier with the attention and love they give her. Lola always makes me feel like she cares about my daughter and wants what's best for her, as well as Priscilla who is so patient and kind. My girl is always well fed, dry, and happy when I pick her up. She adores her teachers. Everyone I see in the halls always seems to know my daughter also, and the management is very friendly and helpful. Lola and Priscilla have made my transition back to work so easy and comforting.

We enrolled at SS in Oct. 2017 after having some issues with our previous child care facility not having nap time for preschool ages and being intermixed with after school program kids up to 12yrs old.
My 3 yr old daughter began in the Commanders class with an exceptional teacher and after her departure there was some transition time in finding another good fit for her class but the staff and the children handled that time well. With the start of this new school year and having turned 4, she has moved up into the Phoenix class (advanced pre K) and Miss Megan is an amazing teacher. Megan has children herself and is in tune with how to constructively handle AND teach such a rambunctious age. My daughter is actively encouraged to reach her potential in all areas of growth; kindergarten prep, social skills, food exploration,etc. This year we are also being integrated with the use of ABCmouse which my daughter is so excited about! Megan is also very personable and provides detailed information about my daughters daily activities and progress, which makes me even happier with our decision to continue another year at SS.

There has been a recent change in the campus principal this past month and we are delighted. The news letter informed us of her degree in Early Childhood Development as well as her experience in the field of over 10yrs made us excited to welcome Ms. Autumn to our school. She is always smiling and is very hands on with every aspect of the school which makes her the ideal leader.

Lastly, one aspect that provides comfort and joy everyday is the Tadpole app that the school uses to send pictures and the day's events of my child. I get to see pictures of her doing school work, singing along with the music man that visits the school and playing with her friends on the playground. In the notes section I am informed of everything that she actually eats from the meals provided (morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack) as well as what the day's learning objectives were and my daughters accomplishments. What more could a parent ask for...?

My son Lucas has been going to Stepping Stone since he was 6 months old and he is currently 3. When we first started, i loved it. We've had our ups and down's with the location. The principle Jessica and staff were great, no turnovers and everyone seemed happy. Than another int-rem principle came and it was terrible. Now, there is a great principle, Jeanette that took over and she is amazing. My son is currently in Quasars with Ms. Kathy who is phenomenal. it is mainly because of her that my son is potty trained. Her disciple and dedication to the children is amazing. Both my husband and I are so happy with her mannerism & attention to detail.

I have both my kids here at Stepping Stone Brodie. My First son has been going since he was 6wks old. He first started off in the Satellites classroom with Priscilla and Lola. Being a first time mom I had many requests for my child especially with him being so young, the teachers were very understanding and helpful. Everytime I would drop off they would light up with excitement to see him and at pick up I would get a detail note about his day verbal and through tadpoles along with pictures. He is currently in Comets with Ms. Julie he is learning so much everyday and his vocabulary is expanding so much. Ms.Julie also talks to the kids in both English & Spanish. My second son is currently in the Sputniks with Ms.Jordan and Ms.Sarah I love seeing them love on all the babies amd play with them in the classroom and just care for them. All the teachers at Stepping Stone School Brodie are full of joy as soon as you walk in.

This is a very well-run and caring facility. Our infant son attended for 6 months. Their safety measures are great, and our son seemed very happy there. He was truly loved by Miss Lola and Miss Priscilla in the Satellite room. We loved that they used an app to send pictures and updates of your child every day. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was for reasons they can't really control. One was that they didn't get much, if any, outdoor time. I think there may be a law they have to follow on that. Second was that it was just too far from our house, so the drive was killing us in the mornings. Third was something I wish would have gone better, which was how often he got sick. It was pretty much a weekly thing. Runny nose to a fever. 5 days well, 5 days sick. This is the downside of large daycares and a hard thing for the facility to manage. Part of growing up, I know. But maybe more fresh air might have helped. I'm grateful for the love my child was given however and I think they're great.
