Why We Are the Best Childcare for Your Child

Educational excellence, unwavering dedication and outstanding child care. Those are the values that Stepping Stones Childcare Learning Center, Inc. stands for.


The demand for daycare facilities continue to grow day by day, but all too often, institutions are only able to focus on either allowing the child to enjoy their childhood and develop naturally or forcing the child to focus only on mental development in order to achieve high test scores later on in life.  Stepping Stones Childcare Learning Center, Inc. is different. We promote physical activities in large open areas and a wide variety of educational games, various arts and crafts for your child to unleash his or her full creative and intellectual potential.


Our goal is to promote every child's development individually using an appropriate mix of academic and recreational activities.

Stepping Stones offers a home like feeling throughout our centers and we encourage you to setup a tour and visit with our loving staff.

Parent Testimonials

"For over 6 years your staff have cared for our boys, 5 days a week for over 8 hours a day. Added up, that is a lot of dedicated, precious time spend nurturing and caring for our boys.  We want to thank you and your staff sincerely for keeping our children safe and making them feel important.  As teachers, your jobs really are trying and difficult, but always remember that you really are making a difference, you are!

"I have been with the Stepping Stones family since 2012.  I just received a letter from my daughters school and she has tested out of her grade and has been asked to join the "gifted" group..  I know some smarts may run in the family, but most of it comes from her foundation she received from Stepping Stones, I want you to know you are changing lives and doing well at it!"

Nikki F.

All of you amazing ladies have a small piece of my heart you've been there to help me raise my children stepped up to teach them and care for them while i was working.  You have all played a role in shaping my kids to be who they are, and for that there are not enough words. Thank you"
