Stepping Stones Preschool & Wonders Early Learning Center

Stepping Stones Preschool offers a first school experience that plants in each child a love for learning while creating opportunities for social interaction and intellectual, spiritual, physical and emotional growth. We believe education must be relevant, meaningful, and fun. We strive to build strong a foundation for all future learning and living.

Environment: Stepping Stones Preschool provides a stimulating and caring environment that encourages curiosity and exploration. A purposeful, fun and hands-on oriented curriculum directs the children to joyfully explore the many facets of our world in a safe and loving classroom.

Our Day: When the children enter the classroom, the teacher will greet them and then the children are given the freedom to explore the various learning activities and interest centers that have been prepared before their arrival.

Interest Centers: Interest centers are changed from week to week, day to day, and sometimes, hour to hour. There may be paint, sensory tables, clay, science experiments, art projects, building blocks, dramatic play toys, books, puzzles and dolls to love.

Circle Time: This important part of our day includes carefully selected children’s literature, calendar, songs, graphing activities and sharing time.

Snack Time: Snacks are provided by preschool families on a rotating basis. This is a special day for the snack person, as they are the line leader, our special helper for the day, and have the opportunity to bring in sharing for group time.

Large Motor Skills: One of our favorite parts of offering a preschool in a gymnastics facility is the gross motor learning that takes place each day in the gym! All children are given a 45 minute gymnastics class each day of preschool where they learn floor, beam, bars and vault. This is a great opportunity for them to burn off some energy and have a TON of fun! This is perfect for the rainy Oregon climate. Gymnastics classes are taught by experienced instructors- generally the owner with over ten years of coaching experience. 

Wonders Early Learning Center:

Wonders Early Learning Center began as a Certified Home Care in 2009. We grew into a Certified Center in 2014, becoming the first center to serve South Corvallis.

We implement a National Standards Based curriculum called Mother Goose Time. We have a new theme for each month, which keeps our learning and materials focused and fun.

We care for children age 3-5.5 (Preschool and Pre-K). We have Full Day and Half Day options available. We are open 7:30-5:30, Monday-Friday. Our half day program is 8:00-12:00 and includes a morning snack (Schedule begins 11/1). Our Full Day program includes and morning and afternoon snack, and parents provide their child’s lunch daily. We do provide milk at morning snack and lunch, so no need to pack a beverage, but a water bottle in his/her cubby is a great idea.

Here is a review from one of our parents: “This place is amazing. I am just so impressed with the things my son comes home saying after a day of preschool. He really loves all the teachers, and is just learning so much. I also love all the activities they do, they are way more creative than I’ll ever be. I really feel like my son will be prepared for kindergarten by the time he leaves this place.


PRE-K (3-5 years)

Our Pre-K class is available to 4-year-olds in multiple time slots. 

Students will participate in small group, hands-on learning activities in math, science, art, and language arts. Positive social development is encouraged using cooperative interest centers. The children will also receive instruction in gymnastics and creative movement weekly.
