Our School Mission
Our school community creates and maintains a learning environment that nurtures the development of the whole child. Stepping Stones Montessori was established in 1982 as a non-profit, nondiscriminatory Preschool and Kindergarten. Since then, our school has grown to support a thriving Elementary Program, two Primary Classrooms, and a Toddler House for preschool-aged children from 18 months to approximately three years of age. At Stepping Stones Montessori, we believe in providing an environment in which a child has the freedom to grow and learn in many areas: Practical Life Skills, Sensorial, Geography, History, Mathematics, Language Arts, Cultural, Social, Biology. This prepared environment is suited to the child’s physical, academic, emotional and social needs. We recognize the tremendous capacity and desire of young children to discover and explore their environment. We make use of the fact that a child has sensitive periods for certain types of learning; periods which once past will never occur again in the same capacity. We allow children the freedom to learn in a safe and caring environment with direction and encouragement given by a very knowledgeable and Montessori certified staff.
