ABOUT STICKS AND STONES PRESCHOOL
Sticks and Stones Preschool was created from a dream and a vision of long-time Westchester residents who believed that this nature-inspired and play-based preschool would be a wonderful addition to their town. With the generous support of the Westchester Community Church, we knew the perfect spot to build our program would be here. The spacious classrooms offer so much light and the beautiful grounds invites us to run and explore under the sun.
We are proud of our team for always learning and striving to offer the best for our children in an ever changing community and world. We believe that each child is a gift with endless potential. Our job is to facilitate them in finding their voice and shining their light.
We believe that play is crucial for children’s growth. Self-directed, open-ended, spontaneous, messy, imaginative play is the backbone of our program. At Sticks and Stones, instilling a connection to nature is vital. We make getting outside in all weather a top priority.
We understand how important it is for children to feel safe and loved for exactly who they are every day. We believe children learn from each other and learn from all ages. We believe in the importance of teaching mindfulness every day in our classroom as a lifelong tool. We believe that all children are innate artists who need choices and lots of materials to explore and express themselves.
We believe that early childhood is a journey and that no two paths look the same.
"We can be loved, just as we are."
