Stepping Stones School strives to provide an exciting learning environment for children between the ages of three and six years.
We encourage play, discovery, and problem solving that are vital to the development of every child.
Children are accepted into our classes according to their birth date.
All children must be three, four, or five years old by September 30th to qualify for each of our respective programs.
These dates are arbitrarily set by the state of New Hampshire public schools system.
The curriculum at Stepping Stones is designed to meet the needs of the children as a whole, yet accommodates each and every child as an individual.
Independent Consultants are contracted to provide music instruction and interactive storytelling experiences on a weekly basis.
Plus we have Monthly Field Trips with the Four's and Kindergarten Classes.
Our highly trained, professional staff far exceeds the state requirements for education.
We are committed to Early Childhood and acknowledge the significance of consistency and stability in the lives of these very young children.
Our teachers loop on with our children, staying with them for the three years they may be with us.
