From Infant, Toddler, Preschool to school age, every program is designed to send your child home happy. 

Like kids, we also love animals at Stepping Stones!  We have a huge aquarium, bunny, & guinea pig.



Infants grow and learn every day. We provide a safe and loving home away from home where infants can explore and make new discoveries.

Young children learn through play, and our Infant/toddler care program is designed to provide infants with the skills that serve as stepping stones for a lifetime of learning.


PRESCHOOL   30 MONTHS - 5 yrs.

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they feel ready to take on the world. Our Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and develop a love of lifelong learning.


Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children develop a variety of skills and knowledge in areas like early literacy, mathematics, science, music, bible basics, and social skills.


Field trips, hands on cooking projects, special family days, Christmas program, graduation ceremony, and so much more!


During the school season structured preschool is offered during childcare hours, Monday through Friday, 6:30 am - 5:30 pm.  


We offer academic preschool sessions  Sept-June.  Our spaces fill quickly, so don't delay in calling for details!



Before and After School Programs 

A Tawas Area School Bus arrives at 7:15 each morning to transport children to Holy Family, Clara Bolen, & Tawas Middle School every school day.  We will provide your child with activities, breakfast, or a soft bean bag to rest in until the bus arrives!  


After school we know our kids are starving!  After filling their bellies with a healthy snack and 100% juice, we have structured activities geared toward school aged kids. Homework help is also available.  Rushing to a sports event after work? Let us get your child dressed and prepared.

School Age Summer Adventure Program 

​Give your school aged child a summer of awesome memories! From field trips (2X A WEEK), wet and wild days to explosive science experiments, street hockey, basketball and more, they won't even realize they're learning!  


Our preschool aged children will enjoy a summer adventure program also, structured and geared especially for those curious minds and hands.
