Day in the Life

General School Mission

Stepping Stone School began as a mother's dream, a vision born from the need to find quality care for her own children. In November 1979, Rhonda Paver, M.A., her husband Bill and their children opened the doors at 1710 Richcreek with a vision of providing the highest Quality Care and Education for young children. The company has since grown to include 18 schools in the Austin and College Station areas, including this school which opened August 23, 2010.
