At Stepping Stones we believe that learning should be fun, exciting and challenging. A relaxed, child-centered environment invites children to creatively explore their surroundings. This, with the gentle guidance of experienced teachers, helps children grow to their fullest potential.

To help children develop into well-rounded individuals, Stepping Stones provides opportunities to facilitate the social, emotional, physical, intellectual and creative growth of each child. A child must feel loved and valued as a person. Through our expressions of acceptance, love and praise, each child will develop a positive self-image that will allow him or her to succeed and acquire the joy of learning.

We care for 123 children at the center. Because of the ages of the children, each classroom has unique characteristics and curriculum developed to meet individual needs.

Infants: ages 2 weeks to 15 months
Toddlers: ages 15 months to 2 ½ years
Preschool I: ages 2 ½ to 4 years
Preschool 2: ages 4 to 6 years
Part-time Preschool: ages 3 to 5 years
After school: ages 5 to 12 years
Summer Camp: ages 5 to 12 years
