I enrolled my son at 8 weeks old. As a first time mother this was a rather unsettling event. I first enrolled my son in another daycare that was closer to my home and had a horrible experience. I spoke with Ms. Lisa, the Assistant Director and she was horrified by my story. She told me to come to the school and look around and see what I thought.

Every morning when I drop him off he smiles at the teachers and starts playing with one of the many toys they have in the room. Ms. Francis is wonderful and gives me great tips and pointers for development milestones.
Ms. Maria is also wonderful and takes great care of him. She makes it a point to tell me when he is learning new things, like when she saw him walk for the first time. Being a first time mother, I appreciate the advice they give me on things from diaper rash cream to helping him learn to use a sippy cup.
Both Ms. Jessica, the Director and Ms. Lisa greet me in the morning and say goodnight when I pick my son up. They know who I am and who my child is. They make my experience very personal, which is essential.
My overall experience with Stepping Stone has been fabulous. I would never want to take my child to any other school for care. They make me feel so comfortable leaving my son there while I am working. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for personal care from a wonderful staff who are extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
