Our son has spent all his preshcool years are Stepping Stones and will switch to primary next Sept. He is very curious by nature and we want to help him quench his thirst for knowledge. Putting him at Stepping Stones was the best decision we made. He have watched him - and his classmates - grow from toddlers into confident, considerate, compassionate children, open to the world, able to beautifully express themselves in French and English, and with so much knowledge already for their age. The mix of active and led pedagogy, with the right amount of freedom and structure, is a wonderful way to teach children, learning has become a pleasure for them, and the results are obvious. The school team is simply the best, the numbers of students is limited, and it is such a pleasure to be able to fully trust those who care for your child during the day. Last, but not least, the fees remain very reasonable compared to other schools for such a level of quality teaching and setup. We are so happy they are opening up their primary section in Sept 2021!

Our daughter spent all her pre-school years at Stepping Stones coming right from kindergarten.

We were immediately impressed by, and grateful for, the understanding and the compassion that all teachers and supporting staff showed towards her and to the family, as she had some difficulties separating from her parents.

All teachers are extremely competent and, very important to us, kind, human and respectful towards the children. Children are loved and taken really good care of. All of this contribute to the excellent atmosphere in the school.

From an academic point of view, we always liked the structure that the school provided. We were particularly happy with the right mix of ‘directed’ activities and ‘Montessori activities’. We were impressed by the quality, the variety and the quantity of the materials available (for art work or any other activities), of the various toys, t... read full review

Our son joined Stepping Stones preschool in 2019. He absolutely loves the school and its teachers and so do we. It’s a five stars plus school.

In terms of academics it manages to find the right balance between structure, guidance and a traditional preschool curriculum on the one hand and free play, fun and creativity on the other hand. The quality of the education is fantastic. Even more amazing is the fun the kids have learning. The school is truly bilingual French and English – which is often written on schools’ webpages but unfortunately not that often true in practice. Our son didn’t speak English nor French when he joined preschool and he learned both languages via immersion at Stepping Stones. The school offers stages during holiday times which is great for kids and parents.

The teachers are all very qualified. They are warm-hearted and passionate. They love the child... read full review

I've been a parent at this school for a little longer than a year, and I have seen them through Covid, quick changes of rules as regards safety and lockdowns, change of staff, and normal daily life; they have always managed to keep a high standard of education, and also care for the children. Both really go together in Stepping Stones. It is a small school and the children are very much loved. The teachers are great: you can tell that children love and respect them, and they provide a real range of activities and learning opportunities. They are also available to talk, listen, and explain to parents, and you can work in a team with them. I also really like the end of terms' reports, they are accurate and honest.
So absolutely 5 stars for level of education, affection for the children, passion for teaching subjects and values, variety of activities; and also the fact that they o... read full review

Our two girls went to stepping stones. One is still there. There are so many things I really appreciate about this school : the kindness of the teaching team and the beautiful energy that unites and carries them. Also the educational project which places the well-being of the child at the center of its learnings. Montessori pedagogy and learning to read in a small group. Music, art and gymnastic lessons with great teachers too.
I’m full of gratitude to see my girls there flourish and grow with confidence and joy. It seems to me that the school really answers to the children’s needs.

My 2 children attend this school and I must say I am very satisfied and feel good about the quality of education they are getting - very good combination of learnings, self-learnings, singing/dancing, outdoor activities, arts, civic teaching, maths/science, languages... During the covid19 period, the staff have gone the extra mile producing a lot of online material. This demonstrates the strong commitment of the teachers and a positive culture towards learning ! Soon, they will be opening a primary school (2021) and the same fundamentals will apply, while there will be more than anywhere in brussels cultural activities outside of the school (museums, exhibitions, science....).
