About the Provider

Description: The Hampstead Congregational Church founded Stepping Stones School in 1970 as a non-denominational, non-profit, coeducational preschool dedicated to providing a warm, caring environment for learning. The school is guided by a five-member steering committee of church members, former parents, teachers and community members. The school’s directors are responsible for the day-to-day functions of Stepping Stones School. We seek to help children develop into self-confident, secure and happy people, while recognizing their individual gifts and capabilities. Stepping Stones is committed to meeting the unique and complex needs of the three to six year old child, encouraging social cooperation and personal autonomy, while fostering intellectual growth. In the school setting the child learns to adjust to a large social group and accept and appreciate the talents, faiths and cultures of others. We feel that learning to listen, sharing ideas, following directions, and enjoying the on-going process and completion of projects are important steps in developing life-long attitudes of accomplishment and fulfillment. Through language development and pre-reading skills, math, social studies, science, music, movement and art, Stepping Stones provides a creative learning environment including instructional and exploratory time.
