Our curriculum develops enquiring minds and a positive attitude. It aims to create an environment in which children feel secure and conﬁdent. The children at Stepping Stones are stimulated to enjoy learning through a variety of well-planned and carefully structured activities. They develop skills and concepts that will prepare them for primary school and give them a sound foundation for future learning.
All of the classes at Stepping Stones follow an Early Childhood Education Curriculum, which incorporates the following six areas of learning:
- Personal, emotional and social development
- Communication, language and literacy
- Mathematical development
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
- Creative development
- Physical development
We complement the curriculum with exercises to develop the children’s co-ordination as well as their ﬁne and gross motor skills. We also take regular walks and go on excursions throughout the school year.
The class sizes at Stepping Stones are small and are lead by qualiﬁed and experienced childcare staff and teachers, who have been carefully chosen for their experience and understanding of early childhood education.
