My son (now almost 5 and about to start kindergarten) has been attending Stepping Stone Schoolhouse in El Cerrito for 2 years and everything about the school has been fantastic, from the core approach to teaching and the dedicated teachers to the supportive community, great environment, and wonderful kids. My son has learned about astronomy, biology, botany, geography, art, music, cooking, sports, and more. And the best part is that he has loved every minute of it. I highly recommend Stepping Stone Schoolhouse to anyone looking for a great preschool experience for their child. Doug
My son has been attending Stepping Stone Schoolhouse for a year now. At SSS, each student is loved and appreciated for his/her strength while the teachers are gently working on their weaknesses with patience and unique approach based on the child's needs. They learn through the themes as they are exploring each theme using science, art etc. This is a great school for kids with curious minds that love to learn while having fun. It's also a school that created great community among parents - we know each other well and organize activities outside the school as well. If you're looking for a school in El Cerrito/Albany area, this is a lovely little school that I would recommend with all my heart. Ali
I wanted to pass along my strong recommendation for Stepping Stone Schoolhouse in El Cerrito. Tew is an absolutely amazing teacher and our 4-year-old daughter loves getting up to go to school each day. She's grown so much at Stepping and is surrounded by a great group of kids. I normally don't post reviews like this at all but this place has been such a wonderful force in my daughter's life that I want other people to check it out. If you are looking for a great preschool in the El Cerrito area you can't beat Stepping Stone. Justin
Re: Need Montessori Preschool Now!
You don't mention what part of the East Bay you are in, but if El Cerrito is convenient for you, you should definitely check out Stepping Stone Schoolhouse, which is Montessori-based. While it is brand new (opened last fall), the Director/Teacher, Tew, has been teaching preschool in this area for many years (including at Growing Light Montessori in Oakland). My 3.5 year old son was a student of Tew's for a year at another preschool and now attends Stepping Stone and we could not be happier with it. Tew is an amazing teacher. My son is very high energy and I think he has really benefited from the structure of Montessori. I also like that Tew isn't rigid in her philosophy, incorporating lots of other methods and ideas in her teaching. There is a magical sense of both peace and joy when the school is full of kids. I know Tew has a few spots left and right now she has mostly boys, so she would love to have more girls. You can find information about the school atwww.steppingstoneschoolhouse.com. Feel free to email me, as well, if you have other questions. Robin
