  • DAILY temperature checks for all students and staff.
  • In-person classes held outdoors (weather permitting) on the lawn.
  • Students socially distanced in areas designated by cones or spray paint.

  • Indoor spaces cleaned and sanitized with CDC-approved disinfectants.
  • Hand-sanitizer used frequently throughout the morning.
  • Bathrooms sanitized before and after each student group’s use.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

At SteppingStone, we are committed to access and inclusion for all people. We stand firmly in opposition to racism, and our programs challenge our young artists, staff, and Board of Directors to foster inclusion and seek equity for all, including Black people, Indigenous peoples, people of color, LGBTQIA+ people, people of all economic backgrounds, people of all religions, and people with disabilities. SteppingStone collaborates with families to meet students’ needs, whether they are social, academic, developmental, or physical.

We Believe

Young people are artists, makers, and doers. They need to belong and to contribute to their world. When young people make art together, they change themselves and the world around them for the better.

We Do

SteppingStone ignites belonging, generosity, mastery, self-advocacy, and inspiration by creating art with young people to share with the world.
