Welcome to Stepping Stones International Preschool !

“Stepping Stones” was created to serve the needs of the International Community in Denmark. We are a small, friendly pre-school with qualified and experienced staff to welcome your child in to a wonderful pre-school experience.

Our name “Stepping Stones” represents the small steps along the way that we help children to take towards the big learning goals they meet as they move through pre-school.

Our children at “Stepping stones” come from many different countries around the world. Those children learning English as an additional language are supported by our diverse, child-centered curriculum and our English speaking staff.

Our program is based on the English Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum for children aged 0-5 years, integrating aspects of the Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate Organization. We aim to help prepare the children for entry to International Schools in Copenhagen (such as Rygaards School or Copenhagen International School) or around the world.
