“I cannot express the many ways that my daughters love Stepping Stones Playschool. They have been there for almost 2 years and there aren’t enough words to show the level of care, compassion and knowledge that Mrs. Susan and her staff instill into all of the children. Each and every one of them truly enjoy what they do and it shows through their actions and words. My daughters look forward to going to school EVERY DAY and have learned so much while attending here. Mrs. Susan is truly amazing! She is patient through so many circumstances and continues to find ways to challenge the children and help them grow and prepare for the next stage of their education. I am truly thankful for everything Stepping Stones Playschool has done for my daughters!”

“My daughter was born prematurely and stayed at home the first year of her life. When I went to enroll her in daycare, I was concerned because she had only been around her parents and grandparents and didn’t take well to strangers. My prayers were answered when I found Stepping Stones Playschool. My daughter went to Stepping Stones from age 1 to age 11. She loved it and still keeps in touch with the friends she made while going to school there as well as keeping in touch with the teachers she had through the years. Mrs. Susan, the director of the daycare, is amazing and does whatever she can to make each child feel loved, comfortable and safe. She knows each child by name and still remembers my daughter! If you are looking for a home away from home for your little one, Stepping Stones is the place for you.

If you are looking for a quality, caring and professional daycare for your child, look no further. From the very first day that I took my son to Stepping Stones, Mrs. Susan and her staff made my son feel like one of their own children. My son is now 5 years old and recently graduated and is heading to kindergarten. They have nurtured and prepared my son for his next adventure and helped his growth all along the way. There are not enough words to show my appreciation and compassion for the entire staff at Stepping Stones, and I am confident you will feel the same way.
