Stepping Stones Components

 The new NAD Kindergarten Stepping Stones program is based on the belief that kindergarten is a stepping stone between home, early childhood education, and the primary grades of school. The program recognizes that young ones are created in God's image and must be nurtured to think, learn, choose, and grow. It is responsive to individual differences in developmental stages, abilities, and interests.
