#Katie Cerchio

"Welcome! My name is Katie Cerchio and I am the Director of the Stepping Stone Preschool and Child Care Center in Brick, NJ. I have a passion for teaching, inspiring, and guiding young minds to explore the world through creativity and imagination. I am a graduate of the University of Florida (go Gators!) and have experience working with young children in academic and physical settings. I enjoy motivating children to reach high, laugh often, and challenge their abilities in a structured yet warm environment. We hope you join our Stepping Stone family to experience our passion in childcare!"

Let's talk

Our Team


Meet our Qualified Staff

We like to identify our staff as our "team members", and soon enough, you'll view them as a family! The Stepping Stone team is carefully chosen; each member has met the criteria per the State guidelines to be considered a team player.

Furthermore, our team is trained on a continuous basis through different platforms and interests. They participate in training pertaining to their designated age group, along with completing mandatory updates on policies and procedures.

Stepping Stone takes all comments, questions, and concerns very seriously; we strive to make our locations a second "home" for your child! It is important to us to be on the same page as our current and prospective families in caring for your child and their specific needs; therefore, we accommodate and learn to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere for your child at all times.

At Stepping Stone, our team members love to have fun, educate, and guide all of our children in a thriving environment.
