Stepping Stones Preschool has chosen HighScope curriculum. HighScope is a researched based and child focused curriculum. It uses a carefully designed process called "active participatory learning" to achieve powerful, positive outcomes. HighScope curriculum helps children excel in language and cognitive learning but also promotes independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity and problem solving.
We use the HighScope and Star Fall curriculums. They meet state licensing requirements and offer a high degree of flexibility. In keeping with our philosophy of an all-inclusive approach to early childhood education, curriculum components are age-specific and can be adjusted to meet the needs of children at varying stages of development.
HighScope Curriculum reflects this comprehensive and highly individualized approach. Kids are divided into different groups during one part of the day in an effort to provide them with developmentally-appropriate activities. At other times, children of all ages play together in order to learn from one another – the younger ones as learners, the older students as role models.
In addition to the basic skills required for a lifetime of learning, Stepping Stones Preschool imparts values such as creativity, self-reliance, compassion, and respect for diversity. In order to achieve this goal, it is essential for us to work closely with you, the parents, to provide the best possible situation for your children.
Our preschool program (ages 3-5) includes:
Because of the developmental differences between preschool and pre-kindergarten classes, our curriculum is divided into two parts. The three year old preschool curriculum is designed to include arts and crafts which help develop fine motor skills, time for independent play and socialization, indoor play groups, sensory/cognitive exercises, and more. Our Multi-age and pre-kindergarten curriculum is structured for kids aged four to five and covers areas such as literacy, math, science, art, and music.
Our Preschool Program emphasizes fine and gross motor skills, socialization, self-discovery, and science. It eases children into the wonderful world of learning through play and other activities.
