Stepping Stones Learning Center was established in 1997, once known as Happy Home day care from 1997 to 2007.  When our Director/ Owner Shawna Martin opened a childcare center at 2205 2nd ave in Muscatine Iowa, then the name got changed to Happy Home Daycare Center.  Then finally changed to Stepping Stones Learning Center in 2013.  


Stepping Stones Learning Center provides childcare to children from infancy to 10-years old in a warm and welcoming environment.  We offer an educational curriculum that is designed for each specific age group, and taught by caring teacher's. 


Owner, Shawna Martin, started the company out of her home when she herself had 2 young children. Being unable to find a quality childcare center, she was inspired to open her own. As the years went on and the amount of children needing to be watched grew, Shawna hired assistants to help her. Eventually she had so many children to watch she contacted the Department of Human Services, and after a lot of paperwork and building a facility, she officially opened the childcare center to the entire community.
