Aiding in Your Little One’s Overall Growth and Development/ The Stepping Stones Curriculum
Let your child have a one-of-a-kind learning experience with help from Stepping Stones Learning Center of Littleton. We offer various programs that suit the unique needs and skill levels of children ages 6 weeks to 5years old in and around Littleton, Colorado. These include infant/toddler care and education, preschool, and we are proud participants in Colorado's Universal Preschool (UPK) for 4 year old Pre-K students.
We have 9 classrooms: Brave Bears: 0-6 months, Friendly Foxes: 6-12 months, Happy Hedgehogs: 12-18 months, Brilliant Bunnies: 18-24 months, Silly Squirrels: 2-2.5 years), Creative Cows: 2.5-3 years, Proud Pandas: 3-3.5 years, Wise Owls: 3.5-4 years, and our Kind Raccoons Pre-K!
In addition to our regular care and education, we do bring in extracurricular programs, such as soccer, gymnastics, French, American Sign Language, music, and more!
We are enthusiastic about participating in the learning journey of children under our care. In addition, we believe that every child is full of potential, and we are as passionate as you are in guiding your little one in achieving milestones every day. This is why we nurture their skills and boost their knowledge
by conducting enjoyable activities.
Our curriculum, HighScope, is a research-backed culmination of philosophies that are tested and true in the field of early childhood development, and includes an emphasis on the need to learn through play, sensory connections, and learning opportunities where the children are active participants. The activities and lesson plans for each classroom are created by experienced and trained early childhood educators, align with Colorado's Early Learning and Developmental Guidelines, and are individualized for the children in our care. We utilize our knowledge of each child's development, which we track through the use of CorAdvantage (a Colorado aligned observation tool), to create meaningful learning experiences that will support each child. We do not believe that all children should be expected to learn and express their selves in identical manners, and for this reason we believe in assessing when children are ready to transition into the next classroom, rather than moving up children specifically according to age. Additionally, we strongly believe in the effect of continuity of care, in regards to the social and emotional well-being and development of children, and strive to build bonds with children and their families. We have a very low turnover rate among our teachers, and we advocate for the happiness, professional development, and support of our staff, and other ECE professionals in our community!
We consider ourselves a family, here at SSLC, made up of the children we care for, their families that we aim to partner with, and the staff who are passionate about our roles!
