Welcome to Stepping Stones Preschool in Clinton, Maryland

Why take your kids to daycare when you can take them to school?

 Stepping Stones is a K3 to K4 12-month program. It is a place where children grow and learn in a safe, loving and Christ honoring environment.

We use the Abeka curriculum for all of our subjects. There is focused teaching everyday by qualified teachers. Some students begin reading before they even leave our K4 program. This sets them up for great success when they enter K5. Working with and educating children is not new to us.

Stepping Stones Preschool and Daycare is an extension of Independent Baptist Church and Academy in Clinton, Maryland. Our ministry has been proudly serving the Greater Washington, D.C. area with Christian Education since 1973.
