The Stepping Stones WOW Experience
Stepping Stones Academy is family owned & operated school with 20+ years of early childhood teaching experience. With a passion for teaching and a genuine love of children, SSA has established an innovative childcare center.
SSA’s strategically designed two-story, 20,000 square foot building has an array of colors, artwork, lighting, and designs formulated to provide a nurturing setting that stimulates each child's imagination and fosters a sense of responsibility while inspiring confidence.
SSA is open from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm each weekday unless otherwise noted, and offers full-time programs to give working parents consistency while providing infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and after-schoolers a strong learning foundation.

Unlike franchised academies that operate through a basic and standard program for age groups, the SSA core curriculum was custom-made by the owners in order to best educate the multiple stages of development with specific connections to brain based learning and research. Our professional experiences have provided valuable insights into how children learn and interact with one another successfully, ultimately creating a new understanding of more effective teaching and assessment methods. The result; your child’s passion for lifelong learning in the 21st century starts with SSA!
Our curriculum centers around using songs, chants, and rhymes that enable students to learn and retain new concepts, transition from one action item to another, and most importantly, make learning FUN! When guests and potential enrollees visit SSA, it becomes immediately obvious as one hears the singing, clapping, and laughter radiating down the hallways that SSA is not just a daycare, but also an energetic, vibrant, and exciting institution for learning and fun!
At Stepping Stones Academy, we believe the best way to help your children succeed — in school or in life — is to teach them to be creative, confident thinkers. We love being a part of the process when our children shine and become super stars in their own creative outlet, at SSA and beyond!
Since the moment I went in for a tour, I felt in love of this school. From the teachers to the way the classrooms are set up and the way the building is enhanced by the vibrant colors and decorations, this school has it all. I would recommend this school. I can see that they are learning, every week is something different.
When I first started looking for a place to bring my son, I literally visited dozens of daycare centers. Stepping Stones was the 2nd one I took a tour with. During my entire search, no matter which center I visited, nothing compared to SSA. I've been bringing my son here since he was 12 Weeks old and have not second guessed for a second that this is the place where we belong. As a single Mom, it was extremely important for me to find a place I could trust. This is that place. The owners Elyssa, Jessica and Steve not only have tons of experience, they are also SO engaged in every aspect of their daycare. They handle things professionally but also add such a personal touch to everything they do. All of the staff comes personally recommended and are great with the kids. SSA made the transition from maternity leave to daycare so smooth and each classroom transition since then has been as well. My son is happy to go to school each day. He always runs in and gives his teachers hugs. They also do a lot of fun stuff like holiday events, fundraisers, book fairs, sports, dance class, professional photos; the list goes on. They even put my resume in the monthly newsletter when I was looking for work. To me, the little personal touches like that make Stepping Stones Academy stand out from the monotonous, corporate daycare crowd. You will not regret the decision to become part of the SSA family.

We LOVE SSA! Our son started in the infant room at 3 months old and we could not be happier with our decision to take him to Stepping Stones. The teachers are AMAZING (especially Miss Evelin) and it is so clear how much they love these kids. It's not just a "day care" where the little ones do nothing all day. It is a true learning environment, where we can see our son growing developmentally. I love that we get fun pictures and updates throughout the day via email. Its great to know what is going on and feel that connection even when we are at work. The owners, Jessica, Steve, and Elissa, have created a truly warm, nurturing and caring environment. Thank you SSA!
