My three year old grandson attended Stepping Stones Academy for about a year when he moved to the mainland. Before he moved he knew all the alphabets, numbers and colors. He was starting three word recognition. He left for three months and returned to Hawaii for a visit. In that short time he forgot... See More


Stepping Stones Academy has been a vital part of my son Skylerโ€™s life since the age of 3 yrs. old. He is now 5 yrs. old and this will be his last year at Stepping Stones Academy.

I was very hesitant at first to leave my baby (3 months at the time) at Stepping Stones Academy. Being a first time mother makes every decision, especially childcare, very difficult and emotional. I remember crying a lot each time I dropped her off. Over the next couple of weeks though... somethi... See More


I wanted to share my appreciation for all that the SSA staff has done for our son and our family. It is not just about the quality of care or instruction he receives everyday. It is about the small thoughtfulness put into the social and emotional development of our son.

When we received the p... See More


Our daughter has been at Stepping Stones Academy for the past 9 months (starting at 3 months old) and we could not be happier!! Sending her to Stepping Stones Academy is the best decision we have made for our little one.

All of the teachers and faculty members are caring, genuine, and welcoming. ... See More


Stepping Stones has been such an amazing experience for both of our kids. We first brought our daughter based on feedback from friends, and she was cared for so well and had such fun that it was a no brainer to send our second one also. The staff has been remarkable, they truely care for the childre... See More


Stepping Stones Academy has been a really great center for both of my girls. This center gave my oldest the foundation to do well as she transitioned from Jr K to K and beyond. My youngest has acquired a joy for learning and will often ask for her teachers even on the weekends. Ms. Myra, Ms.Michell... See More


3 months ago, I have enrolled my 4 yr old son to Stepping Stones Academy. Although it hasnโ€™t been long.

We are very happy with Stepping Stones! My daughter is having fun and learning so much. She constantly surprises us with something new that she has learned at school; Hawaiian words, manners, shapes, colors, numbers, alphabet etc. She is always excited to go see her friends and teachers! Thank you S... See More


One of the best preschools I've send my kids. Very friendly and helpful stuff. Both girls felt welcome from the first day on. Lots of toys for each age is available and everything well maintained. 2 indoor playgrounds - one for toddlers and one for the elder children. I personally love the daily rou... See More


Finding the right Preschool for your child is not easy. Every program has its own personality, schedule, staffing, expectations, price ranges, and it can be stressful finding the right match for your child and family. Stepping Stones has been our dream come true... the answer to our prayers and the ... See More

We are so happy sending our child to Stepping Stones Academy. Ms. Kiran and Ms. Sheryl greet us by name every morning when we walk in which makes us feel like SSA is part of our extended family.

My daughter was enrolled in Stepping Stones Explorers class from the age of 26 to 32 months. She was very shy around other kids at first but she slowly began to open up. We definitely noticed vast improvements in her vocabulary and her social skills since she has been a student. The teachers are ... See More


Stepping Stones Academy accepted enrollment of my baby Kaia when she was just 3 months old! Being a new mom is not easy when you have another child who is 4 years old, own a business and have no family in Hawaii to help with your growing family! I was so thankful when Ms. Kirin gave me a tour and ... See More


From the moment we toured the Pearl City campus, we knew Stepping Stones was the best place for our son. The campus is secure from the outside and cheery and organized on the inside. Our son has graduated through 3 classrooms and has thrived tremendously with the structured lessons and engaged tea... See More


Stepping Stones Academy (SSA) is an amazing place. The structure of the lessons and activities are incredibly supportive of the young developing minds that SSA has under their roof. What I love most about SSA is the consistency in their development of my child. When he transitioned from one age grou... See More


My daughter started at a stepping Stones just shy of her 2nd birthday. From the beginning, Charlotte and her amazing group of teachers went out of their way to ease not only her transition into their care but mine as well. I am amazed at all the things she has learned. She is constantly singing new ... See More

Our son M started at Stepping Stones Academy just under a year ago...he was 1 and 1/2 and had never been away from me (Mom).

My son was always so happy to go to class. On top of that he loved his teachers and friends. Never once did I feel uncomfortable with anything. They are really loving and caring for our children.

When we moved to Hawaii and we're looking for a daycare for our 2 yr old, we were so lucky to have gotten a spot at Stepping Stones. Our son, MC- was never in daycare before, was not a good eater, and was dependent on us laying down next to him for sleep. The first week was difficult with the adjust... See More


Stepping Stones Academy is an outstanding early education program. The faculty and staff are nurturing, attentive, and informative. I appreciate how the teachers provide daily feedback through written progress reports (infant class) and emails about the day's activities and your child's schedule (... See More


Our daughter started in the Explorers class in Honolulu a few months ago and she loves it, so do we.

As new parents, choosing the right daycare for our then 11-month old was a crucial decision for us at the time. We wanted a safe, nurturing, educational, and licensed institution.

My son has been at Stepping Stones Academy since he was 3 months old. Soon, he will be "graduating" from Jr. Kindergarten! It is amazing how quickly almost 5 years goes by!

As first-time parents the selection of a day care facility was probably one of the scariest decisions of our early parenting lives.

This was the first and last school that I looked at for my daughter. Since she started she loves it! The staff at Stepping Stones Academy in Aiea made it a easier leaving my daughter for the first time. Her teacher Ms. Vina was amazing! I would not send my child anywhere else. I would recommend Stepping Stones Academy to everyone!

Excellent preschool. The teachers are so patient. Just this year with no additional cost my grandson was able to watch a teacher demo a drone, story telling with sea life park, play basketball, participate in a dance class. This is on top of the fact that he is only three and can recognize three letter words. This school is amazing.

My 2 year old has been attending Stepping Stones Aiea since she was 11 weeks old. The staff has become like family. The teachers put so much time and effort into activities, music, dance, crafts, and curriculum. At 25 months she can count to 12, sing her ABC's, loves books, and can sing more nursery rhymes than I know. I know she is in great hands.
