Stepping Stones School

  • 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.
