Stepping Stones

Primary school

Kindness, Autonomy, Curiosity

Established in 2015, Stepping Stones welcomes preschool and primary school children in Brussels.

At Stepping Stones, our priority is to instil self-confidence, curiosity and autonomy in each child.

Embedded within a bilingual environment (English/French), our teaching method combines the Montessori approach with collaborative and traditional teaching methods. This unique pedagogy is rooted in the belief that all children have immense potential, and that above all the role of an educator and parent is to activate this potential in the child.  The combination of these teaching methods offers each child the structure and freedom to explore. As a consequence, guided by attentive teachers, our students are given the opportunity to develop and progress in harmony with their own rhythm.

The French learning programmes are aligned with that of the “Fédération Wallonie Bruxelles”, while the English programme is the primary programme duplicated in English immersion but assessed by “Cambridge English”.
