St. John's Steppingstones Preschool Mission Statement/files/Steppingstones/Pictures/prschool girl putting together a puzzle.jpg

St. John's Steppingstones is a child-centered preschool that provides enrichment and school readiness in a program that reflects the moral and spiritual values of the enrolled families. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and all faiths are warmly welcomed.



Our program is designed to be child-centered, to encourage a balance of spontaneous activity, and structured activity, to provide enrichment rather than acceleration, and to emphasize life skills, acceptance of differences, school readiness, and the values of Catholic families.

We believe that play is the work of young children and that toys are the tools children use to develop their many skills and abilities.

Our environment is designed to stimulate play, intellectual development, risk taking, social interaction, physical development, language proficiency, spatial perspective, and respect for Catholic values.
