An Upper Class Learning and Play Experience!

Children are the future’s greatest resource. Therefore, at Stepping Stones Learning Academy, we believe that our greatest contribution to the community and our world is through service to children. The safety, care and education of young children mold their self-esteem and equip them with the ability to find love, happiness and success that last forever. We allow these truths to guide every detail in the origination and continuous operation of our school.

Choosing the preschool that will become your partner in caring and educating your child is one of the most important decisions a parent will make. We are proud of our clean, inviting facility, filled with new and excellently maintained furnishings, toys, teaching materials, and equipment designed especially for children. With classrooms filled with happy, learning children, there are on-going opportunities for developing social skills, building character, making friends and memories that last a lifetime.

Why Choose Stepping Stones Learning Academy?

Stepping Stones Learning Academy is dedicated to providing child care services for children who represent all socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. Quality child care that caters to the needs of children from infancy to school preparedness has been and will continue to be our objective. We recognize that every child is unique and deserves a caring, nurturing and stimulating learning environment, and we provide just that!

Through age-appropriate curriculum and a well-trained teaching staff, Stepping Stones Learning Academy  students are learning from their first day of enrollment. Infancy is a time for quality nurturing and loving care that reassures our smallest ones that their needs are not only met, but that they are planned for and addressed. As children mature and begin to explore their minds are opened to a medley of learning opportunities.
