I have had the privilege of working at Stepping Stones Discovery and Development Center, the teachers here are amazing and wonderful. Every child has learned so much while they are here. The teachers are fun and outgoing and know how to let the child out in themselves. I worked at many other centers around CT and no one compares to Stepping Stones warmth and care for each and every child. I took many memories with me from here and unfortunately I will never find another center as caring as this one. I was very sad that I had to pull my daughter when we moved to another town. She loved and still loves the teachers at Stepping Stones.

I can't agree with Stepping Stones on recommending them. We had a terrible experience there.

Both my children went to Pendleton Child Care and had a great experience. The teachers are nurturing and patient and were both very prepared for kindergaten. Would recommend it highly!

I was pleased to recognize a picture taken at the Children's Nook Daycare in Groton. I taught the 4-year-old class there from 1984 to 1988. It was a wonderful place for kids back then.

As a recently retired Librarian who has had Outreach classes at all these locations, I would say they all are fantastic places to send your children. On a personal note, my grandson attended Mrs. Roberts' class at Mary Morrison Elementary School and we so appreciated all her efforts with his progress during his year there. Kudos to all!
