STEMM Little Stingers Program

Our Little Stingers Program consists of voluntary prekindergarten (VPK), prekindergarten for students with disabilities, and Community Classrooms which are a blend of VPK and PreKD students. 

Our teachers strive to create positive nurturing environments for children to reach their full potential. Their goal is to partner with families to shape the emotional and intellectual development of children with varying abilities in a developmentally appropriate environment that fosters individuality, develops creativity, and respects diversity.
