Throughout our various programs (day program, summer camp etc) we have basic fundamentals that make up the backbone of each of the programs such as academics, arts and crafts, fitness, and life skills. A set of goals are established with each client, along with strategies to meet these goals, creating an individualized program for each client. The fundamentals are geared to meet the needs of each individual client. There is no “cookie cutter” approach used at The Stepping Stone, as we believe that each client is an individual, with their own abilities, dreams, challenges and aspirations.
The goal at The Stepping Stone is not to become the largest private day program for clients with special needs. Our goal is simple, to become the best day program for clients with special needs in London, and we are well on our way to achieving this goal.
At The Stepping Stone we want to provide more than just a “service” to our clients. We strive to create an environment that is warm, inviting, nurturing, and fun, where everyone feels they belong and are part of a bigger family. Welcome to The Stepping Stone, welcome to our family.
