Welcome to Stepping Stones Early Learning Center

Stepping Stones Early Learning Center is a privately owned child care, preschool and school-age program conveniently located in Woodbury and Blaine Minnesota. Our Woodbury location, constructed in 2006, resides on a beautiful 2 acre neighborhood setting and is easily accessible from area neighborhoods and I-94. Our Blaine site, built in 2015, is located in a neighborhood on 3 acres and is located in an area of rapid residential development and is convenient to Hwy 65 and I-35W.

In 2006, Stepping Stones developed a fresh, new approach to excellent child care and early education where the educators, the environment, and the programs are exactly what young children need to learn, grow and thrive.

Today, Stepping Stones Early Learning Center continues to lead the way, constantly searching for new ways to improve our curriculum, enrichment classes, and daily experiences for all children in our care. As part of our mission and philosophy, we strive to support, encourage and nurture a passion for life-long learning.
