Little Stepping Stones (LSS) is a mom-owned business, founded in 2001 with the opening of our first facility on Technology Drive in Garner. Named “Best Day Care Provider in Johnston County” for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2011. LSS continued to grow, opening its second center on Cleveland Road in the summer of 2006.

LSS is owned and operated by Mary Moore and Jennifer Gibbs, working parents who are actively involved in day-to-day operations. Mary has 15 years of teaching experience with the Montesorri method while Jennifer Gibbs has a background in childcare, as well as B.S. in psychology. Staff at LSS are chosen carefully and receive extensive, ongoing training.

Each classroom is clean, bright, and designed to engage the children, with age-appropriate toys and furnishings. Classrooms (two’s and up) include Learning Centers, stationed about the room, to build skills in language, science, social studies, mathematics, art, music and drama. Lesson Plans are posted in each room.

All children love to learn. The real question is how to teach. At LSS, we’ve seen that children learn by doing. Adults have jobs – children play. Through play, they learn the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual skills they need to develop into happy and well-adjusted individuals.

Parents may wonder how play can help their child reach his or her full potential. Shouldn’t they be doing math or learning letters? They are – research says that play lays a strong foundation for a child’s creativity, as well as reading, writing and mathematical reasoning.
