From the Director:
State of the Art Learning Centers: Our Learning Centers provide opportunities for children to make decisions, follow direction, work independently, and learn the care and use of materials. They include areas for books, block play, art, puzzles, manipulatives, science, dramatic play and technology. Each classroom is structured with age-appropriate educational toys, teaching games and materials related to the current unit of study which the children may use individually, with a friend or in small groups. Guidance Methods: All Stepping Stone School Early Childhood Educators are trained in the use of positive guidance methods that help children learn self-control without loss of self-esteem. Stepping Stone's professionals have received extensive training in early childhood education and are available to consult and assist Stepping Stone families.
