Thank You for Your Interest in Stepping Stones

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our admissions process.


We are still accepting applications for the 2023-2024 school year.  Please note that applications for our three-year-old class are open for waitlist only.

Stepping Stones students all have access to speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, learning specialists and a preschool counselor. Programs are not designed for children on the autism spectrum, those who have social-pragmatic language disorders, or significant attention/behavioral regulation weaknesses that may prevent the child from accessing the curriculum.

Admissions Timeline and Application

Evaluation Reports
Please submit your child’s most recent speech-language evaluation (must have been completed within the past year) and related reports (occupational therapy evaluations, developmental pediatrician reports, psychological testing).

Psycho-Educational Evaluation
A psycho-educational evaluation is required for applicants to our Kindergarten.

Teacher Questionnaire Form
In addition to the application, a teacher questionnaire form is required for those children who are currently enrolled in a preschool or childcare program.  You will be directed to supply the contact information for this form during the application process.

Joint Admission Testing Program
If you have JATP testing, please submit results for kindergarten application. It is not required for admissions.

In-House Group Observation/Individual Observation
Once we receive and review all of your application documents, you will be contacted by Stepping Stones with next steps, which may include individual and/or group observation.  There is a $145 fee assessed by the day of the observation. The observation typically lasts approximately 30-60 minutes. The observation is informal and every effort will be made to help your child feel comfortable. The purpose of the observation is to help the admissions committee make appropriate recommendations for your child.
