Registration Overview

Stepping Stones has been a ministry in the Waxhaw area for six years and we are grateful for the many families who have entrusted their child’s preschool experience to us. Each year we have operated at capacity and we look forward to the time when we can expand our preschool space. We are excited that 99% of age eligible students re-enroll each year. We also welcome new students who quickly become family and experience a connection with both the school staff and other families.

We invite prospective families to call us at 704.243.0655 to learn more about our programs and schedule a tour.

Waiting List

You may be placed on a waiting list if the program you desire is full. If you have multiple children and there is no availability for all of them, the sibling who did not get in will be highlighted on the list, giving them priority over other children. We realize it is essential that siblings attend the same school. Waiting lists are used throughout the year. There is no charge to go on a waiting list. You are contacted when there is an opening in that class and given three days to decide.
