Welcome to the Stepping Stone School located at 2301 N.A.W. Grimes Blvd in Round Rock. This campus is easily accessed from Hwy 79, I-35, University Blvd, Old Settler’s Road, FM 112/Avery-Nelson Blvd and is on the way for those commuting into Austin or Round Rock from Georgetown, Hutto and Taylor. Many major employers such as Dell Computer, IKEA, Scott & White, ACC, Southwest Texas State University and Seton Northwest Hospital are located nearby. The campus sits in front of the Meadows at Chandler Creek Park and walking trails.

The school was designed and built from the ground up by the Paver Family ensuring security and safety. This campus is considered one of the leading examples of a high quality state-of-the art early care and education facility nationally. The campus boasts an enormous indoor atrium filled with lots of natural light. Hallways radiate out north and south from the atrium and a separate school age wing is included. The large atrium provides a place for family gatherings or for our enrichment programs which include Dance Discovery, Kung Fu Kids, Opus One Music, Flippers Gymnastics and Sports Adventure.

The school age wing contains a laboratory where STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum and activities take place as well as a computer lounge featuring computers loaded with age-appropriate enjoyable academic software. A large set of cog wheels encompass an entire wall in the hallway and the cogs can be made to move by the children when the large cranks are turned. This is just one of the many children’s museum quality interactive displays that make children attending this school never want to go home. The three spacious playgrounds are shaded and filled with age appropriate outdoor activities including rock climbing walls and artificial turf.

We educate and care for children from 6 weeks to 13 years old and provide transportation for the following elementary schools: Doublefile, Herrington, Robertson, Blackland Prairie, Callison, Cottonwood Creek, Gattis, Nadine Johnson and Veteran’s Hill.

Campus Gallery


We recently came to Stepping Stone from another local daycare that we had a bad experience with. We are absolutely blown away with the quality of this campus. Our kids (2 and 6) are beaming with joy telling us how much they love their school when we pick them up at the end of the day, and they can't wait to go every morning. Our daughter told us that she wants to go there forever, even when she's an adult.

Ms Taylor, the principal, is so involved and responsive. Our daughter (school age) tells us daily about her involvement in her classroom. The assistant principal is also extremely involved in the classrooms. It is really hard to find management that is so hands on with the children, genuinely cares about their safety and well being, and keeps up with the dynamic in the classrooms.

I have not met the teachers yet due to COVID, but our daily reports are thorough and accurate, full of pictures, and our kids really seem to love them!

Due to COVID, our previous school would sometimes have a 5-10 car wait at pickup. Or we could be sitting by ourselves waiting for 10 minutes for someone to notice we are outside. That is NOT the case at Stepping Stone. I don't know how they do it, but they are so on it. I don't ever wait at the door more than a few minutes, even if there are 5+ other parents arriving at the exact same time. They also disinfect their shoes upon arrival, have hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes at the door for parents, and follow all necessary precautions.

I could go on and on about how much I love their staff and curriculum and it has only been a few weeks.

Thank you, Stepping Stone, for the peace of mind knowing that our babies loved, learning, and safe while we are unable to be with them!

I love Stepping Stone in Round Rock! Ms. Taylor and the staff are absolutely amazing! My son has been attending since he was 3 months (13 months now) and I cannot say enough great things. Everyone knows my son by name and shows us so much love. I’m truly grateful for our Stepping Stone family

I like the loving care the children get. The children are in a warm learning atmosphere with high quality teachers and directors. The children are in a secure and clean building and are served nutritious food and snacks. Every child is special, important, and very loved. My grandaughter loves to go to school there because from the minute she walks in she is greeted and it is expressed that they are happy to see her. We are very fortunate to have her in Stepping Stone.

I was sooo scared to put my child in daycare. After speaking with the director Taylor a few times i felt comfortable and enrolled my child. My daughter absolutely LOVES her teacher(s) and friends. She is always so excited to go to daycare. I am so happy that we decided to finally get her in daycare to be around other classmates her age. I know i can be an overbearing or paranoid parent but any concerns or questions i have had and have get addresses right away. I can tell my daughters developmental growth has truly hit a growth spurt since she has started at stepping stone. All the staff have been super friendly, and caring. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone. Not to say the other locations arent just as awesome but i know from first hand experience about this school. And i know ive had some unexpected things come up and Mrs.Taylor and the staff were able to help me out. Thats a plus in my book. They genuinely care about the children and their safety, well being.

The only reason I'm not giving the school 5 stars is because I'm a believer that we always have room to grow. With that said; the school has been a blessing for my son. His teacher, Mrs. Marissa is patient, understanding, caring and loving. My son adores her and I appreciate her teaching style cause it is helping develop my son's behaviors and intellect. The staff is also great and always ready to listen no matter how small of an inquiry at the time.

Mrs. Vicki was a great principal and Ms. Taylor is transitioning nicely while keeping the safety/care of the kids the key focus at Steeping Stone. My son loves Ms. Taylor by the way as well.

We've made our 6 month mark with the school and look forward to many more years and that 5 star review next time. :-)

What an awesome place! Stepping Stone has been a blessing for our family! Our six year old daughter had a wonderful summer experience there. Field trips, projects and structured curriculum to keep her busy! The staff is professional, friendly and so helpful! We were so relieved to find such a safe, clean, healthy environment to drop our daughter off to daily. Thank you to all of the staff and Mrs. Taylor for always being available and willing to address any questions we had. We are all ready looking forward to next summer! Building and sharing new memorable experiences with everyone at Stepping Stone! Thank you so much!!
