Local Business Spotlight: Stepping Stone Education Center

Stepping Stone Education Center is a school for children from 6 weeks to 5 years in both part time and full time education. We are located in Franklin Commons Complex in Phoenixville. It is a wonderful, caring environment for your child! Please come and visit us.

OUR MISSION
The Stepping Stone Education Center accepts each and every child regardless of their educational or financial needs. We provide learning experiences to support each child’s individual intellectual, social, physical, emotional and spiritual growth in a safe and fun environment. We focus on the needs of the whole family by offering parent seminars, providing activities for families to enjoy together and connecting those families in need with local social service agencies.

The Stepping Stone Education Center is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.We provide the best opportunities for the children and their families, SSEC works closely with the Phoenixville Area School District, Chester County Intermediate unit, Center for the Arts and Technology, Valley Forge Christian College, Phoenixville Community Health Foundation and the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation. Over 1000 children have experienced a unique preschool education with SSEC!

“For more than twenty years, our mission has been to love each child for who they are, help them to grow into who they can be, share hugs and laughter every day and reach out to families whatever their need may be.”

OUR HISTORY
SSEC began in 1985 as an afterschool program adding the Happy Hearts Preschool classes in 1987. In the 2008 school year we moved from the First Presbyterian Church, our home for over twenty years, to our newly renovated school at Franklin Commons.

We are excited to offer full time and part time preschool for 80 children! Right now, we are hosting summer camps for preschool and school age children! In August, we open our arms to love infants, toddlers and two year olds with a new fulltime class!

With all of these wonderful changes it has enabled us to offer a richer, more comprehensive education to our preschool students. We view each child as a unique gift from God and believe that each child deserves to learn in a setting that enriches their lives while providing them the love and security they need. No child has been turned away regardless of their educational or financial needs. We reach out to help our families with any concerns they might have by connecting them with the services they need. We also feel it is important to stay connected with our alumni and their families. We believe the Phoenixville community enhances us in becoming a more effective school where our children can develop and grow. Therefore, we incorporate the community in our many of our activities.
