Philosophy

Stepping Stones Preschool is a caring learning center with an understanding that age appropriate curriculum as well as social and emotional well-being are significant aspect to a child’s development. Our curriculum, activities, and daily experiences provide children with experiences for a fun, enriching and encouraging environment while they make long lasting relationships. We create a positive environment, which encourages children to explore their surroundings on a daily basis.

Developing Whole Minds

Academics are an important focus at Stepping Stones Preschool. Areas of academic development include early learning processes in art, math, language, and science.  We provide each child with the necessary foundation for school readiness using a well-known curriculum called Handwriting Without Tears.

Developing Whole Bodies

We nurture our student’s health and whole bodies with an emphasis on healthy nutrition, a variety of physical activities, and play based learning. Our in-house food service provides organic and healthy meals and snacks, and our students have access to activities such as dance, yoga, and soccer throughout the year. Whether we’re inside the class or outside on one of our two playground areas, our students are encouraged to play, leap, dance, run, and move their way to whole body health.

Developing Whole Spirits

We strive to instill a foundation of Christian faith in our students. We are partners with the St. Anna Greek Orthodox Church in introducing our children to the wonders of God’s love for them. We have a weekly Story Time with Father Chris where the children learn about the Icons in the Orthodox faith as well as have a non-denominational Christian story read that focuses on our character building word for the month. The children also pray throughout the day before meals and we encourage our families and visitors to place their intentions on our prayer boards in the school so we can lift each other up in prayer.

Upon completion of our program, we believe your child will have an all-encompassing experience that will provide them with strengths in spiritual, emotional, social, cognitive, gross/fine motor, and academic development that will help them achieve excellence in their future.
