I have been very please with the staff at Step by Step. I had custody of my great-grandchild for a year now. He came to me with with a lot of issues. The staff was fantastic with him. He loved school, and was learning so much. He came to me non-verbal. He left there speaking and singing, he loves singing. They kept me well informed. I was very pleased with them and would recommend them to anyone!!!!

My son has been going there since he was 6 weeks old and they are the best. Super caring staff, great communication with parents and a safe, fun environment.

With my first I was very anti-centers because he was premature and got sick easily and in to the hospital. My second was not as premature and I didn't really have a choice but to take her to a center. It was a blessing in disguise! The women at Step By Step are fabulous!! So caring, fun, attentive to the kids. We are in year two and couldn't be happier. A big shout out to Miss Catie, Miss Debbie and Miss Jen for caring for my daughter like your own child. They know her personality, her likes and dislikes, and they teach her through play and music. Highly recommend Step By Step in Braidwood. I had trouble with our previous sitter cancelling a lot, and not knowing many people in the area it was days off work for us when she cancelled. Step By Step is always there when you need them!
