"The environment at Stepping Stones feels like an extended family. We became friends with all of our children's teachers and many of the teachers aides. They were warm and welcoming every day and created a friendly and happy place for our two for many years! A terrific foundation!"

-Missy Ochs

"Both of my girls attend Stepping Stones part time. The teachers have been so welcoming to both girls and to us! The kids are encouraged to make decisions for themselves from the moment they walk in the door. Kids spend so much time outside which is very important to our family. Every teacher we have encountered seems to appreciate our daughter's sense of adventure and her spirited nature. We can’t say enough wonderful things about Stepping Stones!!"


Margaret Kearney 

"Our family LOVES Stepping Stones! My daughter has an absolute blast in their summer programs! It makes us so happy as parents to see her come home with a big smile on her face and tons of stories about her adventures. The staff and teachers are so wonderful to work with!"

-Kendra Brooks

"We have two kids that have attended Stepping Stones. I absolutely love their flexibility and make-up days for missed days. Most of all I love the teachers that spend time with our children. Not only do they focus on life and emotional skills but the teachers invest time to continue their education on how best to help our kids. I highly recommend Stepping Stones!"
