Prepare Your Little One for Preschool!
Designed for little ones who aren’t quite old enough for traditional preschool, Stepping Stones helps children build self confidence in a classroom setting. Like preschool but on a smaller scale, children will explore and learn through free play, small group lessons as well as whole group activities like singing and story time. Your little learners will love being able to come to school like a big kid!
Stepping Stones is a year long program. When you register your child, they will have a spot in class from September 2023 through May 2024.
Requirements: Children must be 2 by September 1, 2023 in order to enroll in the respective classes. Your child does not need to be potty-trained.
