This week as I get back into blogging (finally!) I want to feature somewhere near and dear to our family hearts… Lalo’s preschool!!
This fall we had to begin looking for where he would enter his first year of preschool and we were fortunate that our church building hosted a new preschool just starting up. We were a bit apprehensive because Lalo doesn’t always make adjustments well (or so we thought) so we wanted to make sure this was the right fit for him. We visited last August and he was shy but that first September day we dropped him off he flew into the classroom and has never looked back!
We have been overwhelmingly pleased with the care that the teachers and directors give to all of the students as well as the smaller class sizes. Lalo has made some great friends and I have met some really wonderful parents and I am sure we will both have some lasting friendships 🙂
The center is run by Kristi San Miguel and Donatella Arona. Both are certified Early Childhood Educators and there are two classroom teachers as well. The school has a playbased learning philosophy were students are encourage to explore and engage in their education as well as have some time to learn center based education prepping them for kindergarten. Lalo has greatly benefited from this program and not only loves it but has succeeded wildly!
Stepping Stone Learning is enrolling NOW! If you want to schedule a time to swing in let me know or fill out their contact form. If you do enroll we both get 50% off a month’s tuition so make sure to let me know so we can both get that benefit! 🙂
