About Us

At Stepping Stones Preschool/Child Care children are encouraged to discover their individual strengths and unique talents. We believe that each child possesses a capacity to learn at their own pace. Learning is best accomplished in a place that is emotionally secure, physically safe, and fun!

Our Philosophy We believe…

 

• That children are precious and must receive care from adults who are capable and caring--whose values enable them to be excellent role models.

• That children should experience numerous positive learning milestones, leading to an increased sense of competence and independence.

• That children's play is extremely vital to healthy physical development, acceptable social skills, and cognitive growth.

• That teachers, drawing upon their training and experience, must create an appropriate educational environment which carefully guides children from one developmental level to another.

• That parents contribute to and enhance the quality of care offered in our program. Stepping Stones Preschool/Childcare welcomes those of diverse faiths, ethnic origins, and race. While diversity may include different faiths, gender roles, socioeconomic status, and ethnicity it is not limited to just these areas. We believe that diversity also includes the different physical, cognitive, and social abilities that one possesses. We strive to create a developmentally appropriate classroom environment that not only reflects each child’s unique abilities but also encompasses their home culture and experiences as well. One of the most important things that we can do to teach our children about diversity is through role modeling that all people are treated with kindness and respect. While it is impossible to list all the things, we do to encourage diversity, listed below are some of the ways we incorporate diversity into our curriculum:

• During enrollment we encourage families to share their home traditions with us and always have an open door policy for you to join us during our day.

• We encourage families and members of our community to visit with us throughout the year, not just special occasions, about their traditions and customs. • Our teacher follows Mother Goose Time Curriculum and she incorporates props and materials into the different learning environments that reflect diversity in the above-mentioned areas.

Upcoming Events:

- Labor day celebration!

- Back to school!
