Stepping Stones Preschool

Thank you for your interest in our Kid Connection and Stepping Stones programs.  As you are aware, our programs remain closed due to the Covid-19 virus. While we continue to offer Temporary Emergency Child Care for our essential workers, we look forward to the day we are able to open up and welcome back our families, friends and children!

As we receive future mandates and recommendations from our Governor, the MN Department of Health, and the MN Department of Education, we will make appropriate adjustments and necessary changes to our summer program to accommodate those mandates. At this time, anticipating changes will be made, we have removed the Field Trip calendars from our website. We will post new calendars when they are available.

Thank You!
