Hi! I’m Elizabeth!

I am the owner and Director of Stepping Stones Child Care Center.  I opened Stepping Stones in September of 2002.  I have degrees in both Early Childhood Education and Social Psychology.

Since starting in the field in 1995 I have worked with infants, toddlers and preschoolers with a diverse array of abilities, backgrounds and needs.

I had the good fortune of being mentored by many talented and caring directors and teachers, and from those experiences I have developed a blended pedagogical philosophy and curriculum that stimulates and educates children by creating meaningful learning experiences while building trust, authentic self-esteem, and confidence.
I am also a licensed Foster Parent for the state of Massachusetts.  In 2005 I opened my heart and home to children in need of a caring, nurturing adult and a constant, stable caregiver. The experiences I have had helping children to see the world as a safe and loving place have cemented the importance of encouraging strong and supportive bonds both in and out of the school community.

I am always here to  help children, parents and teachers to build the strong and supportive relationships necessary to each child in their early life.

                   I am an enthusiastic and compassionate person that truly loves to bring the best out in everyone I am around!          

I have handpicked many educated, talented and dedicated teachers to assist me in my nurturing, creative and loving “second home.” Throughout the center, children are taught as individuals within a group, and approached with respect by caregivers who are mindful of their individual abilities.

I have designed an original and engaging environment that allows every child to feel successful while still being challenged.

As owner and director, I am passionate about providing quality affordable care to families, and working with my talented and knowledgeable staff to implement the key points of the Stepping Stones philosophy for every child every day.

My staff and I bring fresh ideas and youthful energy to Stepping Stones!  We make learning fun!
