Cynthia Fish, the Director, and Founder of the Stoneview Children’s University discovered the need for an affordable center for children when she was a young mother herself. At the time, she was a working mother who needed a place for her daughter to stay. It was because she could not find a suitable place that, years later, she founded Stoneview.
Founded in 2005, Stoneview Children’s University offers instruction and learning like no other educational center. They accept children ages three to ten years old. Here is a list of seven aspects of why so many testimonials have been given for this school.
One-on-one instruction is the main method in which the teachers instruct the students. Unlike most classroom settings, the teacher is not the main focal point while the children learn. Instead, the teacher maintains an unobtrusive role while encouraging self-discipline.
Because the teacher is not the classroom’s controller, students can learn at their own pace. The students can also work on projects for as long as they would like.
The students have the flexibility to work where he or she wants to, free to visit with their classmates as long as it does not disrupt.
When there are errors on a student’s coursework, the child spots them from feedback given by the teachers.
Students have individualized learning programs, which cater to their interests and abilities.
In addition to learning topics of interest to each student, the school puts an emphasis on every child’s social development. To assist in this, children of mixed age groups are in the same class. This encourages them to teach one another.
Unlike traditional teaching methods of basing a child’s knowledge through report cards, the Stoneview Children’s University gauges the student’s learning through skill checklists and benchmark evaluations.
As noted above, Cynthia Fish founded this school because she could not find an educational situation that would fit with her long days of working and attending school. It is because of that, that Stoneview offers parents a before and after school care program.
This school will give you and your child a “mix-in care, love, curiosity, creativity, imagination, and serious purpose.” Their promise to you is that “…you will find the everyday magic of children who love to be here and are busy cultivating their independence as life-long learners!”

Choosing Stoneview for my grand-daughter's pre-school was the best decision I've ever made. She is now in kindergarten and receives instruction in a small group setting, allowing for more direct teacher-student interaction and attention. She is reading, developing math skills using organic materials, can recite the continents and writes in her daily journal. She's made wonderful friendships and is able to express both concrete and abstract thoughts. Stoneview is truly a CHILD centered place of learning. The staff provides instruction in a loving, nurturing environment with the child's developmental needs always in mind.

My children adore going to Stoneview Childrens University. The teachers are amazingly nurturing and my children have become so responsible and independent. They really focus on academics while fostering a true love of exploration and learning. Several of my friends children have attended the program and can testify that the experience is stellar. I highly recommend this program.

Stoneview Childrens University is an experience for my twins that neither I nor they will ever forget. They have blossomed by the care of all of the teachers and with the help of the other students to flowers that are in full bloom. We love Stoneview, and Ms. Fish has been an amazing owner and friend to us through all times. I cant imagine where my boys would be without Stoneview.

When looking at private school options we were very concerned about value. Will this or that school be worth our hard earned money? At Stoneview not a day has gone by that we didn't feel that the quality of education has been worth every cent. Our children have worked with all three teachers; every one being fantastic. All work beautifully with each child to provide individual curriculum so that each child reaches their highest potential. Stoneview is much more than a set of classrooms with a playground ~ Stoneview is an extended family village. The love and care received there will last a life time for you and your children.
