Our Classrooms
 

During the school day, Step by Step serves 6 different age groups, each in their own classroom.  Each group is defined in part by the children’s ages, as well as their abilities and developmental readiness.   Decisions about placement are made with consideration of each child’s strengths and where they would thrive and develop to the greatest extent. 
 

The groups at our school include:        
 

Infants (approx. 0-12 months)                                Crawling Caterpillars    
 

Young toddlers (approx. 12-20 months)                 Toddling Turtles
