Designed for children who are 3 years old by September 1st of the enrolling year. Children must be toilet trained.

The goal of our First Year Preschool program is to help young children grow and mature in a God centered environment with developmentally appropriate activities and instruction.  As we work with each child to help develop their social skills, we also introduce them to Art (emphasis on the process, not the product), Bible(emphasis on God’s word and how it applies to their life), Language (emphasis on beginning letter phonetics and rote recognition along with the written word), Math (emphasis on number awareness from 1-10, placement, measurement, and sequencing), Music (emphasis on sound and movement), Cooperative Play, and Safety.  Our monthly themes make learning fun!

As your child begins to take their first steps in their educational journey, the Stepping Stones environment and teachers provides a positive start!

Tuition is based on a 10 month schedule.

The 2023-24 School Year continues!

We do have a few spaces available, please call for details.
