My son has really enjoyed his time at Stone School. The community feel has been amazing. Mrs. Beth is a caring teacher and I really like being able to be involved in educating not only my son but the whole class!

Stone School is an outstanding preschool. My son enjoyed every single moment there. The environment of this school is very nurturing , my son developed socially and gained lots of knowledge about letters, numbers and letters’ sounds. Thanks Miss Rauchelle for your efforts and thanks to all moms who help in running this awesome place.

I get emotional every time I talk about how much we love this school. The enrichment our son receives (socially, emotionally, and academically) from his experience in Miss Rauchelle’s 4’s class is astounding. He looks forward to school every day and is sad to leave. He has grown in his math and literacy skills and in his empathy for others. I cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience has been.

We have been a Stone School Cooperative family for the last five years with one more to go! We have loved our time being a part of this great community school. Being able to be present in the classroom, helping the teacher and have special times spent together with my children have been great. My children have mastered skills, socialized, played and created during their time here. We have built long lasting friendships and are (obviously) happy to spread the word!

My daughter has learned so much at Stone School. Not only academic skills such as math and phonics, but also important social skills such as careful listening and effective communication with teachers and peers. After seeing how excited my daughter was to go to 3’s class every day, I dual-enrolled her in 3/4’s and 4’s PM for her second year, and she has been loving every single day! *I* love the welcoming community and involvement that come with the co-op preschool experience.

Stone School Co-op Preschool has been a great place for my kids to begin their formal learning journey. The teachers use best practices and their joy for teaching and children is evident every day. My children have all been very well prepared for the Ann Arbor Public Schools where they have excelled. I am grateful for the social skills my kids have developed in this safe and nurturing environment. And I have met some of my dearest friends at Stone School. I highly recommend this preschool!

Stone School has played an important role in both my children’s education, it was a wonderful introduction to school. It has taught them both to love school and to be excited about learning. Stone School is a very nurturing environment, and from the first day both my children were comfortable and at ease at school. They both grew academically and socially as well at the school, and I felt they were both very well prepared for kindergarten.
The friendships made with other parents has been a blessing, and being able to be involved with my child’s education in this way has really made me bond with my children, the teachers and other parents.

Fantastic Preschool!! Miss Beth was the perfect first teacher for my daughter. She is a caring, patient, and compassionate teacher. The kids are happy and love going to school to see her and all their friends. The play based learning atmosphere has been wonderful for my daughter. Every day the kids have free choice time, exposure to letters, numbers, an art project, free play in the downstairs area, snack and outside time.
We loved the 3/4 class so much we decided to dual enroll my daughter is in it again this year along with the 4’s PM class. Miss Rauchelle is a fantastic addition to our school. She, like Miss Beth, was a Stone School Parent when her kids went to preschool here and has been wonderful with the 4 year olds. While it is still play based she incorporates phonics, writing, numbers, and kindergarten readiness skills into all that they do. The kids learn how to play group games, which has been amazing to see the kids transform from the beginning of the year when it was so hard to wait turns to now when they start the games on their own.
We also love the science, math, and mystery bags that get sent home too. Mystery bag is like a show and tell, but with clues before they see it. My daughter is always so excited to bring in her mystery item and report back about what they guessed. Overall the preschool has been a great experience for my daughter and we are so happy to have gotten to be a part of the whole Stone School Community. We’ve enjoyed play dates, school potlucks, and making great friendships during our time here.
