WOW! The classroom is such a great space–bright, colorful and inviting for small children. An awesome place for learning and playing.
The Stepping Stone philosophy we learned at this visit, promotes responsibility, individuality, creativity, socialization, and fosters independence. All this while being underscored with the principles of Christian values.
And then there is the staff-very warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. What impressed us the most, is the longevity of years they have been at Stepping Stone. It obviously speaks volumes to their dedication to not only teaching children, but to this program.
So after this first visit, the decision was made…
Every morning my daughter asks if she is going to preschool. When I bring her in the morning, she is smiling and skipping across the parking lot. When I pick her up, she is still smiling and skipping back to our car. This to me is the very best endorsement for Stepping Stone–a 100% happy, well adjusted preschooler!”
“Stepping Stone Preschool has been a delight for my family. My second daughter began attending the 4 year old class last year and was extremely well prepared for her full-day kindergarten experience this year at WCS. She loved preschool and thrived on the academic challenges and social interactions…The children are taught to be polite, respectful, and caring to their peers and teachers. They are also encouraged to care for others in the larger community through Thanksgiving Baskets and Christmas Gifts for those in need. Stepping Stone Preschool is a blessing to our family!”

“I looked at several preschools for my son–some local, some not so local. Stepping Stone was the only one that offered the program, class size, and tuition I was looking for.
The director and teachers are so supportive and welcoming. My son stayed at Stepping Stone for two years and loved it. A few years later, when it was time to enroll my daughter I didn’t consider any other alternatives. My daughter already knew all of the teachers just from having been there when we dropped off and picked up or son years before. what most impressed me was when my daughter and I went in just to have a quick look around and re-introduce her to the teachers in the spring prior to her enrollment. They took her right into the class in session and allowed her to participate in most of their day. That was so great, and way beyond what I had expected. Stepping Stone also has several “special days” during the year when parents are invited into the classroom. I love having the opportunity to see what goes on and how my children interact with the other students! Stepping Stone has always been and will always be the only choice for me.”
