Kindergarten (LEAP)

LEAP (Learning Extensions and Play) is a unique program provided by Stepping Stones Children’s Center within each of our School Age programs in Pine Richland as well as Seneca Valley (aside from Eden Hall Upper Elementary). This program compliments the half day kindergarten program that takes place in the schools. It is offered to children who are currently enrolled in kindergarten, and we offer both morning and afternoon sessions.

Our LEAP teachers are highly qualified, certified elementary teachers who create and implement engaging, child-centered and developmentally appropriate thematic lesson plans each week based on Pennsylvania’s State Standards. Our program is very unique in that we have the flexibility within our curriculum to provide a wide variety of activities for children. These activities include: reading, writing math, science, social studies, gross and fine motor, foreign languages, art, music, dance, dramatic play, socialization, and problem solving. 

While in our care, your child will have access to a diverse library of books, games, a large selection of media related to drama and creativity, science and nature, arts and crafts, as well as educational programs available on the computer (when possible). We will offer a balance of teacher initiated and child initiated experiences. They will enjoy time both indoors and outdoors.
LEAP is available at the following locations:
Hance Elementary
Richland Elementary
Wexford Elementary
