Stepping Stones is a bilingual French/English school neighbouring the Bois de La Cambre in Brussels. It is located in a typical 19th century townhouse with its own terraced garden.Animated by her passion for children's education and many years of teaching French as a foreign language, in 2014 Hélène Nabokoff developed a new teaching method inspired by the principles of active teaching but using a traditional preschool curriculum, including a vertical teaching method for 3-to-6-year-olds. Our project is "tailor made", creating stepping stones to primary school where our principal goal is the wellbeing of child.
Each child has a unique background, potential and knowledge.Our educational project is based on two fundamental principles: - meeting each child's needs- creating a happy environment of general wellbeing and so enabling the child to learn well.
Our son and daughter are extremely happy at Stepping Stones. English is their mother tongue, but after a year at the school they were both coming home singing french songs and speaking to us in french. We were delighted! They particularly love their sessions in the Montessori room and the wonderful music and dance lessons.
A remarkable school in every way. Children benefit from constant benevolent attention, thanks to an enthusiastic and competent teaching team. An ideal place of joy and learning for children ... who are sad to have to leave it one day! To advise without hesitation.
It's a good looking school, they serve lunch and snacks (which is very convenient) and have a good garderie program until 6 PM. However, their communication with parents is close to zero, they don't take any kind of suggestions, and they are pretty inflexible about many things (e.g. keeping a +/- list for parents to know whether kids have eaten lunch or slept that day, which is a minimum of information; or taking the kids outside more than once a session) . It's mostly because they are understaffed and the director is pretty inflexible in many respects Also, when my child was sick, they didn't administer the medication I left for her (prescribed by a doctor), because "she seemed fine". That was outrageous. Make sure you ask all the right questions and get all the answers before you make a decision. What was a great school for us and our daughter during the first semester turned into a nightmare during the second one. We left and never looked back!
