Based upon our enrollment of young children beginning at six weeks of age whose health is jeopardized by such communicable diseases such as measles or whooping cough, the Child Care Board has made the decision to offer care ONLY to children who are immunized. We do not accept religious or medical exceptions.

Emergency closings, or closings due to weather will be announced through our automated RoBo call system. It will also be announced on the radio and TV. If the Mount Vernon Schools are closed due to inclement weather, Step By Step will also be closed the first day.  We have every intent to re-open the next day, providing the weather does not worsen and the streets are safe for all families and staff.
*Step By Step ONLY offers full time care.  In order to have a school age child apart of our program (kindergarten thru 5th grade) they must have a sibling enrolled in our daycare program. Step By Step does not offer just school age classes.  For qualifying School Age Children we provide before and after school care, holiday care, inclement weather care, and summer care.
 
"With each of you, we were like a parent holding your hand, whispering encouragement, showing you step-by-step how to live well before God, who called us into his own kingdom, into this delightful life."
