Our Educators Nurture Each Child’s Path

Our early care and education teachers are among the finest in the field and are committed to children and families.

They understand how young children grow and develop during the early years and tailor their learning plans to achieve every child’s developmental milestones. For our educators, their work is a call to excellence and they are supported by our extraordinary training and career development opportunities.

Teacher-Child-Parent Connection

One of our strongest philosophical tenets at Stepping Stone School is the teacher-family connection.  Stepping Stone School exceeds expectations when it comes to these important relationships.   

This includes teacher-child, teacher-parent and teacher-administrator relationships, all of which contribute to the quality of education in the classroom. A personal connection with parents bridges school and home life through continuous communication and understanding.
