Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Stepping Stones Learning Center's classroom programs provide a unique learning environment for children with and without special needs. Of prime importance is the match of values and goals between families and staff. We are striving for an acceptance of diversity and learning variances for children and adults participating in the program. Positive adult relationships, along with rewarding experiences for children and low adult to child ratios (below state requirements) provide for a well-rounded program.
It is our belief that this program will instill values, encourage enthusiasm and creativity and strengthen socialization while children are engaged in the activities and routines of a stimulating classroom. Enrichment activities including music and rhythm, creative art and dramatic play, encourage active exploration of the environment from the youngest crawling across the floor to the oldest investigating the world around him. We promote curiosity, individual interests, creativity, and the development of self-esteem. The child's ability to be a competent individual, increasingly independent in action and thought is the overall objective.
In conclusion, Stepping Stones Learning Center's philosophy is to provide the finest possible environment for the safe, healthy development of young children. Our highest priority is on the development of self-esteem, confidence, and a love of learning."
