Interview with Rhonda Paver, CEO, Owner and Founder of Stepping Stone School
Rhonda Paver’s vision for better early care and education in Austin began over four decades ago. In 1979, Rhonda and her husband Bill arrived in Austin with their three children and struggled to find affordable and high-quality options. Determined to make a difference, Rhonda founded the first Stepping Stone School that year, focusing on the development of each child. While overseeing the school’s growth, Rhonda also earned a master’s degree in Child Development from UT Austin.
For over four decades, Stepping Stone School has been dedicated to helping families and children thrive. As a stable and expanding family of private schools, we are committed to providing a better education for a better world. Recognized by industry experts as a national model of excellence in early childhood care and education, Stepping Stone School continues to shape the future.
