Clean, safe, and fun place. My son has been going to stepping stone since 4-week old. We started with Parmer location and moved to Cat Hollow for about a year now. I like how the staff/teachers are really attentive and my son is always excited about going to school. I have not tried other daycares so can't compare it to others, but I'd really recommend this place.

My children attend Stepping Stone School at Cat Hollow. I just found out today that they will begin to serve Farm Fresh producer. I am a Certified Chef by trade so to hear this is coming soon is amazing. This is just one more thing to love about Stepping Stone School. I could not be happier with the love and care my children receive on a daily basis. In my opinion there is no better school. Amazing staff, chef and administration!

My daughter has attended this facility for 6 months now and it was the best decision we've made! The school amenities, curriculum, and attention she receives is just absolutely wonderful and impressive! I can not say anything but great things about this school. The staff, teachers and principal are always so friendly and always greeting us. The school location, in particular, gets 5 stars from this satisfied mom!

I love this Stepping Stone location! I have two little boys(7 and 3) that have been coming here since they were infants and they love it as well. The school goes to great lengths to provide fun activities, field trips and educational opportunities for the kids. The staff is kind, competent and trustworthy which helps make it feel like one big family. Keep up the great work Stepping Stone Cat Hollow!!

I've been taking my two kids here for a couple of yrs now and they have always been great! It always seems to have a positive atmosphere and the kids seem to always enjoy it. The teachers always seem to have a smile on their face and my kids absolutely love Ms. Sara!
