"Stepping Stones provides quality, age-appropriate education and care for children 2 years old through kindergarten. We strive to create a warm, loving atmosphere where the children learn to be self-reliant, solve problems, interact with their peers and adults so they learn tolerance and positive skills of social interaction. Through active involvement with the staff., as well as their physical environment, games, art materials, dramatic play, music, and science activities they gain confidence in their abilities and develop positive self esteem. Activities are offered which encourage physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth.
Our goal is that children will learn to view themselves as worthwhile, and develop their own unique potential. While they build their own self esteem, they will be encouraged to value the uniqueness of others, their peers, teachers, as well as other children and adults with whom they come in contact. They will be exposed to a variety of different cultural and social experiences through lessons, curriculum materials, special visitors, and hands-on materials.
By encouraging the child to attempt and master age-appropriate tasks, by setting limits appropriate to the level of each child's capabilities and limitations, and by listening to and understanding how the child responds, we strive to strengthen the gifts each child possesses.
