Announcement Regarding Stepping Stones 2 Day Care

Posted May 29, 2015

To our families, employees and friends:

As you most likely now know, Stepping Stones 2 Day Care Center will be closing permanently on Friday, August 28, 2015.  Increasing competition and costs have made it impossible for CEO to continue operations while focusing on our mission-centered programs. Please note that this closure does not impact our Head Start programs which are separate from our Stepping Stones 2 Day Care.

For our Stepping Stones 2 families, we understand that this is a difficult time for you and your children.  The staff at Stepping Stones 2 and CEO is committed to helping you find a day care option that meets your family’s needs.  If you have not already received a packet from us, please make sure you get one from our office as soon as possible.  The packet contains more information on our plans and some day care alternatives in the community for you to consider.

For our staff, please make sure you meet with your supervisor to discuss your options.  We greatly appreciate the care and compassion you provide to the children we serve, and we intend to do everything possible to make your transition as easy as possible.

The decision to close Stepping Stones 2 has been very difficult for all of us at CEO, but it is a necessary one given the current environment.  It will allow us to focus on our other mission-centered services.  We will do everything possible to support everyone concerned through this difficult time. Most importantly, we thank our families for the faith that they have shown us over the years in caring for their children and helping them grow.

If you have questions about transitioning your children to a new day care provider, please contact our Center Manager, Melissa Fuss, at (518) 286-0139 or mfuss@ceoempowers.org.
