As soon as I walked in to the school I knew it was the place for my daughter. It was bright, clean, and organized. I checked out several schools and none compared to Step By Step. The teachers, Ms. Martha, Ms. Rachel and Ms. Marzi are warm, welcoming and very respectful. The kids have free choice of “work”, and being that my girl is very independent and strong minded this works out well. I love that they use redirection and correction rather than time-outs and shame for discipline. The classrooms are full of educational opportunities and the backyard is a wonderful safe playground setting. The children are free to choose the sandbox, bikes, the slides, balls and other outside activities. The schedule includes outside play several times a day. I highly recommend Ms. Marzi’s Step By Step preschool.K P. Concord
