Preschool Focusses on Education for 21st Century

Camden, Maine -

CAMDEN, Maine -  Stepping With The Stones Preschool is now enrolling children for the 2011 – 2012 school year. The family-owned, private Midcoast Maine preschool—entering its 11th year in operation—offers a fun and academically progressive curriculum for children ages 2 1/2 through 6.

At Stepping With The Stones Preschool early childhood education is designed to nurture the child’s self-confidence, interdependence and spirit of celebration while providing the important first steps toward a lifetime of learning. With a focus on cognitive and social skill development Stepping With the Stones Preschool helps children grow during the formative years in ways that will help them excel in the 21st Century world community.

The curriculum at Stepping With The Stones preschool aims to close the gap between the performance of American children and children of other nations in math, science and a host of other subjects. The school embraces a clear vision of American children meeting higher standards of education and community ­– a standard not evidenced in the latest international measurements on education.

“Stepping With The Stones teaches solid academic skills in math, phonics, language development, writing and varied social experiences in fun and interesting ways. We teach skills of peace and nonviolence, then reinforce the same during the entire preschool year,” stated director Jerry Stone. Music, art, poetry, dance, theater, movement and storytelling—activities designed to foster the child’s creativity—are integral parts of the daily schedule. “Our approach is to put the school in preschool. It’s this ‘leaning advantage’ that sets us apart,” said Stone.

The preschool offers enrollment for ages 2 1/2 through 6 for 3, 4, or 5-day sessions to meet the diverse needs of both parents and children. Parents choice of days is always honored. School hours are 8:30 to 11:30 AM Monday through Friday. An optional After Care program for SWTS preschoolers is available from 11:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
