I can’t thank this lady enough for stepping up and filling in whenever she is able to. I may have coerced her a bit to work even more than she intended. 😉 There is NEVER a dull moment with Ms. Christina around. We love her positive, fun-loving personality and to say she is a natural with kids is a major understatement. ❤️❤️❤️

We had an incredibly busy but rewarding week at Stepping Stones. We had our yearly State inspection that was one of THE best ever! The results aren’t posted yet but when they are I will share the link for you. Thank you to all our amazing staff and families for making me so proud today and everyday. ❤️❤️❤️

They don’t make them any sweeter than Ms. Ellie. She is incredibly calm, patient, loving and VERY easy to get along with, which is exactly what those babies in her care need. Ellie has worked in childcare before as a lead infant teacher and we consider ourselves very fortunate that she chose to be a part of our family.

It would be a huge understatement to say these kids were excited for their first picnic and park day. They had a blast and I think it’s safe to say they are worn out. 😎😎😎

Happy 18th Birthday, Stepping Stones! Hard to believe we started with 5 kids and over the years had to move to 3 different locations to accommodate the growing need for quality care in our community. Thank you to all our families and employees past and present who have helped make Stepping Stones what it is today. We have so many great memories to last a lifetime. ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you to all the parents that helped make Childcare Provider Appreciation Day extremely special. We were spoiled with lunch from Bro Brgrs, flowers, gift cards, amazing desserts, coffees, and so much more. We definitely felt the love today. ❤️❤️❤️

To know her is to love her. This lady has so much passion and dedication for her preschool program and the kids in her care. She works extra hours working on her program outside of daycare hours without ever complaining. Our preschool program would NOT be the quality it is without her. She sets such a great example and is such a great friend; she is the the best listener! Stepping Stones is a better place because of Ms. Amanda. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Where does one even begin when praising the great Ms. Melissa??? Her personality is pure gold and she has the best laugh that can brighten anyone's day. She is so calm, patient and kind to the children in her care and she's not afraid to get silly with the kids and get on their level. She has worked at Stepping Stones for just over 3 years and we couldn't be more grateful for her.

Ms. Sandra is one of the most genuine, hard working people I know. You can hear her laughter throughout the daycare on any given day and her positive attitude is contagious. She is so patient and loving towards the babies in her care and never gets overwhelmed. We are so lucky to have her on our team at Stepping Stones. ❤️💕

P.S. she’s also an AMAZING singer 🎤

The red room and preschool classes made snowflakes to help decorate. Nice work kids!

Every year we decorate the hallway for Christmas. This year, we expressed our need to Lincoln School, Stepping Stones, and the Boys & Girls Club. They ALL delivered! We are so thankful for these creations that deck the hall! (pun intended🎄) Thank you Yankton School District, Stepping Stones Childcare Center, and Boys & Girls Club of Yankton!

This is an incredibly bitter sweet post. Ms. Abby Oien has decided to move to Sioux Falls and pursue a career at the LifeScape Specialty School. Her last day at Stepping Stones will be Wednesday, December 23rd.
To know Abby is to love her and I can’t even verbalize how much she will be missed by her co-workers, Stepping Stones parents, kids and boss. She may never understand the impact she has made on all of us but we truly appreciate all the hard work and dedication she gave Stepping Stones day in and day out.

No matter what you do, you will move mountains. We love you Abby!❤️❤️❤️❤️

Breanna Pfarr moved here recently from Minnesota. She has her early childhood degree and worked in a childcare center prior. We feel like we hit the jackpot with this one; I wish you could all see the adoring looks the children give her in the red room. ❤️❤️
