Health, Hygiene & Nutrition

Exceeding Health Standards

Our hygienic practices exceed those required by state regulations and recommended in the National Association for the Education of Young Children standards. For example, Stepping Stone School provides:

  • Eco-friendly antimicrobial and non-irritating cleaning solutions
  • HEPA-filtered vacuuming of buildings daily at the close of business
  • Infant room air-purification systems
  • State-of-the-Art sanitary practices
  • TB test verification of all staff
  • We consult on a regular basis with Medical Experts

Healthy Nutrition

Meals at Stepping Stone School are healthy and wholesome. Prepared in each school’s open gourmet kitchen, three snacks and a hot lunch provide a balanced combination of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and whole grain ingredients. Our chefs ensure children receive the nutrition they need through meals they love to eat. We are vigilant about allergies and food sensitivities and our campuses are peanut-free.

All meals are served family-style to enhance social-emotional development, focusing on socialization, manners, and coordination.
