Stepping Stones Early Learning Center, located in Salisbury, Maryland opened its doors August 2004. This facility is licensed by the Office of Child Care and offers an educational and child care program for infants through age five.

At SSELC our goal is to utilize the child’s natural curiosity and desire to learn by providing materials that encourage hands-on exploration and investigation. We believe that the environment plays a major factor in stimulating and motivating the child to accept some of the responsibility for his/her own learning. Furthermore, by incorporating and integrating a structured instructional program with that of a stimulating self-motivating and exploring environment, we believe that children will develop positive self-esteem as well as develop an appreciation for learning.

Our staff is knowledgeable of early childhood development as well as basic early childhood teaching methods, receives annual early childhood core of knowledge training in development, health and safety, community, professionalism, curriculum, and special needs, in accordance with state regulations, receives training in CPR and First Aid, participates in the Maryland Early Childhood Credentialing Program, and attends monthly in-service training as well as staff meetings.
