EDUCATION is not preparation for life; 

EDUCATION is life itself

It's important to find an environment that will help nurture your child’s growth, development, and set the stage for future learning.

About Us 

Our Classrooms and Curriculum

Stepping Stones Learning Center is an inclusionary program utilizing the Montessori approach to teach students with special needs, alternative learning needs such as dyslexia, ADHD and learning disabilities, and neuro-typical learners in an inclusive, co-taught classroom. Our class is co-taught with a licensed special educator and licensed, certified Montessori general educator. The Montessori curriculum is differentiated to meet the individual needs of each of our students while additionally aligned with the common core standards.

Our Mission and Vision

Our mission is to provide an individualized education that empowers students' strengths and develops critical skills for success in an environment of mixed skills and abilities. Education must include understanding and working with peers of varying skills and learning to utilize these skills for the common goal of all students' ultimate expression of their greatest abilities. 

Our vision is to GUIDE students to discover, value, and become empowered by their individual strengths and demonstrate the ability to show these strengths in ways that are productive and fulfilling.
