I have three children here and could not be happier. We actually tried a few other schools in the area thinking that we would have what we have here elsewhere. That has turned out not to be the case. It seems the other systems have a priority focus on the children that are behind, which leaves the ...  Read more

We started our children at 18 months and 3 years. We decided to pull our second child after 5th grade. The school academically has not been strong for years now.

We have two older children who have attended other Montessori programs/schools, and this is by far the best we have witnessed. The faculty, staff and entire environment is welcoming and calm and ...  Read more

We started looking at Infant/Toddler programs in the area when our daughter was about 10 months old. She started SSMS at 13 months. We had researched Montessori and knew that this philosophy fit well with the dynamics of our family. We're now moving into Children's House and adding our youngest to ...  Read more

We started our son there last year in the Toddler Room, He has continued on this year and is in his first year (as a 3 year old) in the 'Children's House' program. We are thrilled with the way our son is ...  Read more

Initially I found this school when looking for an enriching program for my 2 year old, which is difficult to find! We have loved Stepping Stones so much though that we will be doing preschool there as well. In addition I am going to move my older child there as well in the Fall. We have enjoyed so ...  Read more
