Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The main objective of Stepping Stones Educational Center, Inc. is to provide youngsters from age three to age twelve with an environment to foster their natural curiosity. We feel that the early years in a youngster's development are some of the most important ones and that children should have a chance to reach their fullest potential.

We understand that parents do not place their children in a daycare facility because it is the thing to do, but because they have to. It is our intention to make this transition as easy as possible on both the parents and the children. We understand how important it is for our youngsters to have the opportunity to be creative, to experiment, to explore, but most of all, to be prepared for the unexpected. It is our intention to stimulate not only their growth and development in the areas of social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills, but to provide great opportunity for creative play and experimentation.
