Hands-On Learning for Toddlers

Stepping Stones Toddler classrooms are full of energy and an abundance of curiosity. Dedicated and caring teachers guide children, provide hands-on exploration and social interaction in a safe and nurturing environment. Our toddlers progress naturally because they are constantly encouraged to be creative and inquisitive, to learn and to have fun while learning.

  • We encourage toddlers’ holistic development by focusing on physical, cognitive, social and emotional milestones.


  • Our spacious classrooms allow toddlers to explore and discover new ideas through fun, hands-on activities, laying a positive foundation for early education.
What do Toddlers learn and do at Stepping Stones?


Books lay the foundation for a love of reading. They also help children to develop listening skills, expand language and foster creativity. At Stepping Stones, we make story time interactive by incorporating music, puppets, felt board and pictures.

Language & Communication

Toddlers will have an exponential growth in their speech and language skills over the next year. Teachers encourage language development a variety of ways, some of which include:

  • Participating in one-on-one and group discussion conversations
  • Pointing to the words on a page as a story is read aloud
  • Learning to use words to describe the characteristics of objects
  • Practicing to follow one or two step directions
  • Use of crayons and other tools for “writing”
  • Assist child in developing an understanding of the self-concept

Math & Science

Teachers provide toddlers with many opportunities to develop early math and science skills. At Stepping Stones, your child’s play and daily activities are filled with new discoveries and experiences, allowing children to explore their environment and gain knowledge of the world around them.

  • Stacking sorting, matching, dividing and counting objects
  • Shapes, colors, letter and number recognition, puzzles
  • Scooping and pouring
  • Making and blowing soap bubbles
  • Sensory, water and sand table activities

Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds

Toddlers need to be physically active; it’s how they explore and learn about the world around them.

  • Singing, dancing, indoor games, outdoor play and yoga are just a few activities that keep our toddlers active, engaged and developing their motor skills.
  • Meals are freshly made by our in-house chef following a healthy menu focused on fresh ingredients and our LANA program.
  • Breakfast, Lunch and snacks are eaten family style. Children sit with their teacher and classmates; learn the give and take of conversation, practice table manners and how to serve themselves.

Self-Help Skills & Potty Training

“Look what I can do!” Toddlers are excited to show us their new skills. At Stepping Stones, teachers will encourage your child’s ever growing determination to try new activities on their own.

  • We are constantly developing age-appropriate self-help skills such as hand washing, setting the table, picking up toys, self feeding, dressing, etc.
  • We recognize that all children potty train at their own pace and time! When a child is showing readiness, our teachers work with the family to provide the best environment for successfully reaching this exciting milestone.

Enrichment for Toddlers

In addition to our curriculum, Stepping Stones believes all children should have the opportunity to participate in enrichment classes and activities. Our program is all-inclusive; meaning enrichment is provided free of charge. Enrichment for Toddlers includes American Sign Language, Character Educaton, Music Class and more!
