My son, who is now 3 1/2, attended Step Ahead from the time he was three months old until just last week. I cannot say enough positive things about this school. The owner, director, and teachers went above and beyond every expectation we had and offered such a loving environment for my son. We moved out of the area, or else he would have remained at Step Ahead until kindergarten. The school is clean, organized, and has a great curriculum for the kids. Not only do the teachers always have fun activities planned, they offer a wonderful pre-school program. They have fostered a love of learning in my son that I am sure will follow him through school. The summer program is always so much fun for the kids and I am really sad that we moved right before it began! In addition to having weekly water play outside, they bring in pony rides, a petting zoo, the ice cream truck, and have special activities planned multiple times a week. Throughout the year they have various special programs that you can sign up for, such as a weekly sports program, gymnastics, and dancing. The teachers fill out progress reports and meet with the parents on a regular basis to keep you updated on your child's progress. My husband and I were extremely happy with our experience with Step Ahead. I would recommend this school to any of my friends moving into the city. My son thrived here and we will miss the teachers so much. The teachers and staff love the kids and love what they do. We will miss Step Ahead greatly.

Words cannot express how wonderful Westport School has been to me and my children! After almost 5 years there, my children have grown and blossomed under the care of some of the most dedicated and caring child care experts I have ever met. Never once did I worry about my kids during my work day because I knew they were being nurtured and educated by some of the most patient yet down-to-earth people - who know how to let kids be kids in the best way possible. There is always terrific continuity of care because their staff turnover rate is so low. Over time, my kids have been in the infant-toddler, 2&3s room, pre-school, pre-kindergarten, and school-age programs and all are equally fabulous! My older children still look forward to visiting to see their favorite teachers, who are still there. (Big hugs to Miss Melissa, Miss Terry, and Miss Donna!) If you can't stay home with your kids, this is the next best thing!
Words cannot express how much of wonderful experience our family has had in the four years of our sons life, he started at 12 weeks old, and from the moment I felt at ease leaving him in loving arms. The teachers are extraordinary, always hugging and loving on the children, while providing excellent level of education, values, manners, potty training, socializing, playtime,arts and much more....all the teachers have been the numerous years and some 20 &30 years, that told me something is right for people to stay that long, I receive pictures on my son doing arts or napping and much more nice feedback. The owner listens well and put in a new 30,000$ Playground, and hands out a healthy snack at the end of the day ;). I would refer anyone looking for A warm family orientated place for their child or children. Plus great access to the highwaylll
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to the teachers and all caregivers at the Westport School. This has been a wonderful environment for my son to learn interesting subjects and experiments. The kindness and dedication of each person there really makes a difference in the experience the children have. We are grateful for the individual attention that each child receives and are conscious of how much self esteem building has been accomplished in these important younger years. Our son is just now beginning kindergarten but will definitely be back for summer camp. The Westport School staff is filled people who make a positive contributions for the benefit of the children. Thanks again!
After a bad experience at another daycare I was hesitant to trust anyone with my son. After talking with Jim (the owner), meeting some of the staff, I was hopeful that this could be a place that I would trust to take excellent care of my son. After one week I was sold. This place is amazing. The staff are great. They respect your time in the morning if you are in a hurry but will also take the time to talk to you if you have questions. Safety is of utmost importance as well. I truly consider myself lucky to be able to send my son to the Westport School. And best of all, he loves it. I do not worry about how my son is being treated during the day. And that is worth more to me than anything.
Thank you so very much Westport School for all of the top notch care that you provide our children. While our two children are with you we have total confidence in the care you provide. All of your staff are simply amazing, caring, kind, professional, nourishing and stock full of wisdom. The environment that you have created feels as if we are leaving our children with family, and like the other daycares/schools that we have experienced. It is really awesome the curriculum that you have in place, and the way that you have balanced learning, creating, caring and recreation. Thank you again for all that you do, and we hope we never forget to say thank you so very much. Jes and Margaret C
I have guardianship of my grandson. He is 19 months old and has been going to Creve Coeur KinderCare since he was 7 weeks old. Everyone there is so friendly! He enjoys going to daycare to see his friends and teachers! I like the fact that there is a code you have to use in order to get into the facility. KinderCare has great nutrition food for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. They send emails on upcoming monthly events and what things my grandson will learn that month. I enjoy reading his daily sheet to see what he ate and what activities they did for that day!! I would recommend Creve Coeur KinderCare to anyone!! :-)
The staff at CEC are very nice and good with kids; they have taught my child a lot. BUT, they always close if there is questionable weather. They have closed many days this winter due to weather, more like a public school than a private provider. Today they're closed all day while the Lacy Clay Center opens at 10 and 3 other day cares our friends use in STL city are open as usual. I guess you get what you pay for; those 3 day cares are all more expensive than CEC (Child Garden, Kinder Care, and Bright Horizons). If you have family available to help or a flexible work schedule, CEC is great!
After a horrible day care situation my daughter was in (a student kept biting her and the previous day care did NOTHING), I heard about The Westport School. Upon me walking in to take a tour, I was treated with respect, kindness and overall happy atmosphere, I signed her up! I am so glad I did. She has been so happy! The teachers are hands on, truly care for her and let me know of her progress on a consistent basis. I am so happy I have found The Westport School! So is my daughter!
This daycare center has changed multiple directors in the past few years. Unfortunately the current one is least professional or flexible. This lady director doesn't care children's wellbeing or family needs. The facility is totally business driven. My older son had a good time back a few years ago and it was why I put my second son here again. Unfortunately the culture was totally different due to this new director. I had to take my second son to a new place where he is much happier.
