About Us

Stepping Stones Child Care is located in the Springfield Presbyterian Church in Sykesville, Maryland. It has been a privately owned and operated center for over 20 years.

Our mission is to provide your child with a sound intellectual, emotional, social, and physical foundation to enable them to take their first steps towards a successful school experience.

At Stepping Stones we are proud to provide staff which not only share in this mission, but are dedicated towards providing the knowledge, academics, and enthusiasm necessary to fulfill our mission.

When you visit our center, you will find large separate classrooms filled with creative young minds being nurtured and stimulated by our highly qualified and professional staff. Your child will enjoy spending time each day on our two well-equipped playgrounds and find participating in fieldtrips to events such as Gaver Farms Pumpkin Patch, Hoppers and Theater Productions at Arts on Stage, to be a stimulating and rewarding experience.

To schedule a tour and/or to enroll your child, please complete our "Request for Child Care" form and send it in. Any questions, please call us at: 410-549-6585. We are open Mon-Fri, 6AM-6PM.
