Stepanski Early Childhood Center Ratings & Reviews

My Granddaughter attended Stepanski Early Childhood Center, she attended the “Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is a free program funded by the Michigan Department of Education, and is offered to 4-year-olds who meet certain criteria such as low to moderate income, single parent families, and family history of school failure. Children attend class all day; four days a week and classrooms use the High Scope curriculum.” This is how it reads on the Stepanski web page. We were also interested in the Tuition Based Program which reads “Our district-wide NAEYC Accredited Preschool programs provide high quality, developmentally appropriate experiences for children ages three to five. Highly qualified teachers implement the High Scope curriculum (, a research-based hands-on, play-based curriculum, designed to expand your child's knowledge and skills through daily experiences with Language & Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Music & Movement, and Creative Representation. The High Scope curriculum's Daily Routine framework guides Preschoolers through learning opportunities designed to nurture their physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth. 30-Week Session with 2-day, 3-day & 4-day options runs mid-September through mid-May * $1075 - $2375/year.”Need I say more…which program would you like your child to attend? I am composing a letter to the Governor of Michigan, Department of Education, and Waterford Board School District. The Stepanski Early Childhood Center/Children Village are NOT educational programs, it is a DAYCARE system and a inadequately run daycare at best.

My son is in mrs. Berden/Wiseman 4yr preschool class now and I think they are excellent with the kids. There is a lot of structure in the classroom and they don't put up with whinning or violence in the classroom. They are kind, but stern with the kids when they need to be, but they are fun and my son loves them. In a couple years my youngest will be attending stepanski and I am looking forward to him having mrs. Berden/Wiseman for teachers just like his big brother.

Overall I've been very pleased with Stepanski for my child's first school experience. She attended the Hand-in-Hand program as a 2 year old with Mrs. Hungerford, and also had her for 3 year old preschool and a number of their summer enrichment classes. Mrs. H is simply the most wonderful preschool teacher you would want for your kids going to school for the first time - she is so warm and so caring and she helps all the kids feel great about being there. She then had Mrs. Berden and Mrs. Wiseman for 4 year old preschool - while they were good teachers, and my daughter did well in their class, it is much more rigid and structured. I was disappointed with how they treated some of the other kids who weren't as good about following the rules and seemed to show more frustration than patience with them. The 4 year old program is more academic-based and they did a great job preparing the kids for kindergarten, but I worry for some kids it could be a really negative experience rather than a positive one. The impression that they gave me was that they would be better off teaching older kids in grade school. My daughter as enjoyed the child care program as well.

My daughter attended both the wraparound child care and the 4 year old 4-day class. I found the child care to be sufficient but disorganized: issues with meal times (some days she wouldn't eat more than a few bites at lunch) and communication (the morning people wouldn't talk to the afternoon people so when I would pick her up, no one would tell me of how she got that cut/scrape). The preschool class was okay - but there was absolutely no personalized attention. Your child will learn only what the teacher is expected to teach - my child went backwards in learning because she wasn't being challenged and I had taught her everything they were going to teach. The extras (library, gym, etc) were good and the playground is great. This preschool is better if your child is just starting to get ready for school, not already ready for school.
