Curriculum Goal

•Intellectual Development: Early childhood education programs give children a head start. By the time kindergarten comes around they usually have a good grasp of basics like math, art, handwriting, the alphabet, reading, and so much more. Perhaps this boost will also awaken the love of learning

•Physical Development: Preschool teaches many of the basic physical skills like balance, coordination, body awareness, and motor planning. And, this physical development also includes fine motor skills and overall muscle control.

•Emotional Development: Our emotional well-being is central to who we are and how we approach the world. Preschool and early childhood education helps your child get a solid emotional base that serve them well for the rest of their life. Main emotional goals include helping your child get a sense of self-respect, teaching them how to adjust to new situations, and building a willingness to try new activities.

•Social Development: Our lives are spent with people in our family, community, and workplace, and, of course, school. Early childhood programs concentrate on getting along well with other children, communicating with adults, learning to respect others, and flourishing in an educational setting.

Communication

Proper communication between our parents and the teachers and staff of Stepping Stones is extremely important. Teachers will be sending home information on a regular basis. Infant and toddler parents will receive daily reports. Concerns about any aspect of our program, or your child's care, may be expressed to the center director. Each child is provided with a mailbox and/or cubby. Please check these daily for notes, newsletters and daily reports.

Remember to communicate in writing any changes in your child's schedule. We must be informed, in writing, regarding any changes in the person picking up your child. You may add or delete names of authorized adults allowed to pick-up your child on the Child Information record.

Our main office must be informed of any of the following changes:
•Address and/or phone numbers, or email address
•Parent/guardian employment,
•Health/immunization up-dates, or;
•Other pertinent information related to your child.
