Written by the grandparent of a BMS Early Childhood student in May 2016. (In the 2016-17 school year, Ms. Stefi was joined by co-teacher Tammie Sarver.)
As the school year draws to a close, I wish to thank you and Ms. Stefi Schafer for the wonderful introduction to school given to my grandson. "No child left inside" and the outdoor sign, "...free range children," combined with the biggest playground I have ever seen, perfectly describe this school's understanding and respect for the way children learn. This exceptional school and faculty provide a rich and complete learning environment for the children and families served.
Ms. Stefi's classroom is packed with enticing learning opportunities, a variety of experiences, and touches of Reggio Emilia. She is full of enthusiasm and is positive and respectful in her approach to children. Whenever we speak to our grandson on the phone, we always ask what he did at school that day. He can always recount some exciting adventure and ends with, "I love my school!" He has grown in all areas of development and found joy at Blue Mountain School this year.
For 17 years I was an Early Childhood Education instructor and supervised a laboratory nursery school and internship program. During this time, I had the opportunity to visit and observe a variety of public and private programs. I couldn't have chosen a more perfect school for my own precious grandchild. Many thanks to all who made his first year such a positive experience.
