About STEPPING STONES DAY CARE SOCIETY
Stepping Stones Day Care Society has been providing services to families in Grande Prairie Alberta for 35 years. Originally started as a Day Care it now offers a variety of integrated Family Resource Programs; Day Care, Family Child Care, Inclusive Child Care Program, Early Childhood Resource Centre, Centre for Early Learning Preschool, Respite & Nutrition Program and a Parent Link Centre.
The Society believes that "Healthy families will build a healthy community".Working with young parents, many isolated from their families and communities of origin we provide child care, support programs and parent education. Many of our programs are free of charge to families.Stepping Stones works actively to promote Quality Child Care programming throughout the Northwest Region of Alberta by managing a contract for the Alliance of Early Learning Programs, a program that provides consultation to 99 ELCC programs.Our operational budget is strong but we struggle with maintaining our aging buildings.
