"A child's first encounter with child care and school is extremely important. Throughout every stage of learning, Stepping Stone's philosophy is, that every child be respected, valued, and provided with the opportunity to be happy, by fostering a warm and caring atmosphere that encourages creativity and success; along with:
The opportunity to feel secure by taking time to let your child know that he or she is listened to, cared for, and important.
The opportunity to be challenged by promoting activities that will lead to problem solving in all areas (social, emotional, physical, & cognitive).
The opportunity to be creative by providing materials, activities, and guidance so that your child might develop his or her individual talents to their fullest potential.
The opportunity to experience success and to be accepted by planning activities that are appropriate to your child's developmental level, and by encouraging individual efforts. "
