Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our purpose at Stepping Stones is to provide your child with a loving atmosphere full of daily learning experiences. Our teachers act as coaches; cheering your children on and sharing the exhilaration of their accomplishments!

We use a 'whole child' and 'sensory' approach to our teaching, based on the idea that children will use every aspect of their senses and bodies to learn about the world in which they live. Our teachers understand that each child is born with an incredible amount of curiosity and that each child has a unique style of learning. We provide educational activities that challenge our children to absorb information and problem solve.

All children develop socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and verbally. We address all of these aspects of growth daily through our alphabet based lesson plans. We incorporate language, math, science, art, music, drama, physical activity and creative exploration into our lessons. Our main units are based on a letter of the alphabet and then broken down into smaller units daily; such as dinosaurs, ducks or doctors for the letter 'D'. We use books, art, music, outside visitors and other related activities involving small and large muscle groups to teach our children about the topics. From engaging play with the infants to painting with the preschoolers, our planning provides a nurturing and stimulating environment where children can be safe to learn about the world.
