Welcome to Stepping Stone School at South Park Meadows located at 9325 Alice Mae Lane in South Austin. This campus has easy access from I-35, Slaughter Lane and South 1st Street. It is situated directly behind the South Park Meadows shopping center. It is also on the way for those who are commuting to Austin from Buda, Kyle and San Marcos. 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. The atrium provides a place for family gatherings or for our enrichment programs which include Dance Discovery, Opus One Music, Flippers Gymnastics, Soccer Shots, and Sports Adventures. Hallways radiate out from the atrium with younger children in one wing and older children in the other. A classroom dedicated to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum and activities and features a large light bright board similar to that seen in the finest children’s museums is available for children three years old through school age.

Large heritage oak trees shade the three age appropriate playgrounds covered with artificial turf and feature play equipment and activities the children find fun and engaging.

We love this school! Every day we drop off our son, I feel incredibly thankful and blessed that he is in such a wonderful place- especially after hearing some of the horror stories of other day cares. Our teachers have been great and the principal is fantastic. I know he's in a place that is safe (and clean!), where he is learning so much and that he is well cared for. I love that they take the time to prepare healthy meals for the kiddos. And I love the outside play area with beautiful trees and the time he gets to spend outside. Thanks for everything you do Stepping Stone! We appreciate you more than words can express!

My grandson is three and has attended this school since he was four months old. I couldn’t be happier watching how my grandson is thriving at this school! The staff and teachers are wonderful and are very understanding. I love to see all the art projects he makes. It’s amazing to see everything he is learning. But most importantly, he gets EXCITED about going to school. Stepping Stone – what you do every day is making a difference in the lives of children. Thank you!
